RE: Officially....Agnostic
Knowledge and belief are two entirely different things.


Just so you know.

You have just begun reading the sentence you have just finished reading.

We *must* label ourselves correctly - otherwise what do we say when the Atheist Alliance for the Incarceration and Extermination of Evangelicals (AAIEE) comes a-calling ?

We offer them tea and biscuits, silly. That's the polite thing to do. Didn't your mama teach you basic manners? No

(And labels are so 20 century. I had a chip implanted a long, long time ago.)

Rather than reject beliefs like a skeptic, I say embrace them. The placebo effect really happens--and I believe that proves faith is greater than knowledge.

And yet you were previously claiming, with all appearances of acting like you possessed positive knowledge, that the book you wrote was genuine divinely inspired scripture.

Have you definitively backed off from the position?

It looks to me like Egor is trembling on the brink of atheism.

He's hesitant, due to some silly ideas about life being meaningless without God.

Get over it Egor.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

RE: Officially....Agnostic
So far so good a not getting reamed for being agnostic. I put agnostic as my facebook infornmion thing. Now it;s only a matter of time. I don't think anybody has even seen it yet. Oh how fun this will be...

I just put Atheist in my basic information on Facebook. I think I'll be able to tell if it gets noticed by who suddenly unfriends me.
