I read on here all the time that people are agnostic because you cannot prove that god does or does not exist. But for me, that just doesn't seem to make much sense. The fact that there is absolutely no evidence of god's existence, and no evidence that he/she/it answers prayers, is evidence in itself that such being does not exist. Know what I mean?
Let me put it this way. If I have a hypothesis that short people run faster than tall people, I would design an experiment to test that. If after that experiment, and several others, I find absolutely no supporting evidence for my hypothesis, I would be forced to conclude that short people do not run faster than tall people.
The sheer lack of evidence is enough for me to conclude that there is no god.

"Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence" Carl Sagan
I myself am agnostic because I believe there is so much more out there than we humans can perceive even with all our devices and equipment. I am a scientist and I believe science is a wonderful method to help us understand our physical universe. But I believe there is much more out there than our physical universe.
