I have been Agnostic since I was 8 years old. When we moved from Texas to Alabama, we stopped going to church, though I prayed everyday at school lunch and got beat up for it. When I asked my mother why we didn’t go to church anymore, she told me that they didn’t believe the same things we did. I wondered to myself how anyone could not believe in the one truth of Jesus Christ and his dying for our sins. Being the curious and intelligent child I was, I studied the other religions by sneaking off to places of worship of all different types to see firsthand what they believed and why they believe I was wrong. One thing I found they all had in common was they relied on FAITH, no one had any proof that anything they said was the truth, that the history written the books was more than mere fiction.
Religious Tolerance .org has a good definition of Agnostics. Most sites are biased against them and portray them negatively by default.
Agnostics aren’t athiests. athiests believe that there is no gods or goddesses, single or plural, and they have proof that they’re right and the religious believers are wrong. Religious persons are the opposite, having proof that their religion is correct (proof is relative to their own perception of course, as it is with us all.) Agnostics fall in the middle- we believe that a god-like creature would be so far above us we would have no ability to comprehend it any more than bacteria can perceive and understand a human. But we also cannot completelty disprove a creature more powerful than ourselves exists either. Like humans and bacteria, being a greater power doesn’t mean the god created us or has any benevolence toward us. Our brains are the most advanced in our world but it is the belief of the Agnostic that it is still incapable of understanding god, though we are open to any information that proves us wrong whether it’s from the athiests or the theists.
