Agree or Disagree?


I can't decide whether I agree or not....... but it did make me chuckle.

Disagree.I'm Agnostic.I'm not afraid to say that I don't believe in God,it's just that I don't have enough evidence to say that he does or he doesn't.It could be more that one God.No one knows.

I love him, and that's funny, but I do disagree.

I'm agnostic. Atheists believe there is no divine entity or energy. Religious folks believe there is. Agnostics believe that at this point there is no definitive evidence one way or the other, and that the best thing to do is to keep an open mind to both and be humble enough to admit we don't have all the answers.

I hear you.. although I do think it's possible to be an athiest.. well I guess anything and still admit that you don't have all the answers.

Open mindedness is always good.

I love Stephen Colbert too :)

I disagree.
Agnostics have the intellectual honesty to admit there's no evidence and therefore they cannot claim the non-existence pf a deity. Atheists commit the logical fallacy of thinking lack of evidence means evidence of the contrary.

Right, but the fundemental belief is that there is no higher power, god(s), or divine power/entity/energy. There is no afterlife. I don't see atheism as a lack of faith, more like faith in the fact that there is nothing. Religious people have faith that there is something. Both rely on faith in their beliefs, again, without enough evidence to conclusively prove that they are correct. As an agnostic, I say I don't know either way. My husband is atheist and is positive that there is no god, without conclusive, compelling evidence. Most of my family is religious. Same thing. They think there is. Without hard proof.

I don't even know what I am. I don't believe there is a divine power but I know I could be wrong.
