I've been looking for a site where I could discuss my particular agnosticism...and some considerations I have about atheism. I intend to do it courteously...and I hope I succeed. (I'm sure I will.)
Interesting that merely registering sorta entangled me in one of those "considerations" I mentioned above.
I was asked to identify as "atheist" or "non-atheist"...and when I selected "non-atheist" I was asked to identify my "belief."
I chose "other"...but the fact is, I have no "belief" on the specific issue of, "Do any gods exist or not."
Interesting that the issue would arise so soon.
Anyway...I see problems with labels like "atheist" or "agnostic"...so rather than actually label myself "agnostic" (as I did in this thread title), I usually set forth MY agnosticism, which is:
I do not know if gods exist or not;
I see no reason to suspect gods CANNOT EXIST...that the existence of gods is impossible;
I see no reason to suspect that gods MUST EXIST...that gods are needed to explain existence;
I do not see enough unambiguous evidence upon which to base a meaningful guess in either direction...
...so I don't.
