agnostic paradox
To say that I am a gnostic atheist and understand that agnosticism is the only logical argument leads to paradox, and I'll tell you why - the plurality of you.

RE: agnostic paradox
Russell's teapot is no longer floating around between Earth and Mars... How do I know this? That is not important... What is important is that you cannot prove me wrong.

"As long as the reason of man continues fallible, and he is at liberty to exercise it, different opinions will be formed. As long as the connection subsists between his reason and his self-love, his opinions and his passions will have a reciprocal influence on each other..." -James Madison Federalist #10

IOW John Cantor can speak to you the individual about agnosticism, but the prophet is an atheist. :/

Who says they haven't? Consider

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

Okay, I'm intrigued. But I will admit, being as that it is sunday morning I do have bourbon in my coffee. That being said, I am not sure of what's going on here, please do me the honor of an " ad HoC" elaboration.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
