An interesting historical perspective on being agnostic
I just joined the forum and this is my first post. I wanted to share this paper I just read by Robert Ingersoll on "Why I am Agnostic" written in the late 1800's. It is a very well thought out religious history lesson and, if you have the time to read it, I hope you will find it interesting.

Also, if you are interested in the man, here is his info:

P.S. Feel free to comment on this post if it is inappropriate in any way, as I am not yet versed in navigating and using forums. Thanks!

Welcome.
Many of us are familiar with Ingersoll, but it's always nice to find another who appreciates him.

Post an intro in the Introductions thread, let us know who you are.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Thanks for your warm welcome. I do enjoy his writing style and lucid mind and have just discovered him - so I will be doing some more reading! :-)

Also, I have already posted my intro in the introductions thread when I signed up.

Forgive me for being sceptical but my research indicates that this was your second post.

Only teasing you.

Welcome aboard and thanks very much for the link.
