Chuck,

I also seem to get a bit of the "you just can't make up your mind" and "you're just a fence sitter" when it comes to my being Agnostic. My experience has shown me that often these people have a false notion of what an Agnostic is. I was even told by an Atheist that I am "worse than a Christian, because at least they take a stance...". These are, of course, unfounded accusations as I do indeed take a stance.

My stance is, I believe, the only reasonable and honest one. I do not have a problem with admitting that I do not know. I think it is as arrogant to state with certainty that there is no God or Gods, as it is to state with certainty that there is. If you are certain, where is your proof? My opinion is that the existence of a God is so very improbable that I am convinced one does not exist, but I do not know. I think it is as likely that Zeus and Jupiter exist as it is that Yahweh lives somewhere in the heavens. And even if they do, where is the evidence that they interact with us, if to interact you mean to have some form of a relationship? If there is no concern on the part of this being, why should I care if he/she/it exists let alone worship this God?

As our Patriarch has so succinctly stated; "We don't know, and we don't care"
