After a truly horrible Ph.D. experience, I abandoned particle physics, fled west, and sold out to the Military Industrial Complex. I've done various sorts of remote sensing--radar, sonar, and some other -ars.

Atheists upset poor, little Mickey because they insist there are only theists and atheists. He's an agnostic and don't ever forget it! He has to barge into any and every atheist thread he can find to get this message out. 'The paranoia is strong in this one.'

Ah yes, we've got a couple of those.

It would be ironic if, now that we are away from the trolls, we miss them Gasp

confusion != agnosticism .
atheism != a positive declaration that there is no god .
knowledge != belief .

Ah, the memories Facepalm

There are a few trolls over here for your amusement.

In my experience it's not just one person, there's a whole class of people who're endlessly pedantic about exactly what the word agnostic means and why it's important that we not only accept their definition of the word but also quite frequently a load of flower fairy twaddle about how everyone's right at some level... I dunno if your specific guy's here.

So now I will post only rarely here, I guess. My resume: atheist, physicist professionally, science fiction writer very unprofessionally.

Welcome! Another physicist! What did you do with your training? I spent about 10 years in antennas and propagation, and the rest in missile defense and MILSATCOM. There was a brief excursion into plasma isotope separation. Thumbsup

Also a physicist here, though economic reality turned me into a programmer after my post-doc.
