Hi Elisabeth,

Thanks for your post. I would have appreciated your comments on the two questions or at least on my responses to them. You have a rock solid moral code thanks to the faith imparted to you by your parents and the Church.

So your definition below and the micro-dissection of semantics of agnosticism are a storm in a tea cup. The big guns on the Atheistic / Agnostic side don?t appear to care about the labels. So don?t sweat the small stuff in our dialogue about God versus NO God.:=))
When the house is on fire, don't worry about the front garden. And the differences between Rose with Iris with Hosta etc.. And the different shades of green and red etc.

I think you are using goanet and us as a punching-bag for your provocative ideas.:=)) That is all right. Half the native Goaneters are praying, making novenas and lighting candles for YOU, instead of having "casual fun".:=)) And the other half (OK, just the most important ones) are giving ME... galis!:=))
Kind Regards, GL

The first thing you should stop doing is using the slash when you refer to atheists and agnostics. There is a difference between the two. The words are not synonymous.

An Agnostic simply acknowledges that it the beyond the realm of our current knowledge to know anything about either the presence or absence of a Deity. He then further assumes to himself that (i) either this knowledge is irrelevant to his life, or (ii) that it is relevant. If it is the latter, he continues to gather information of interest.

For myself, I am of the latter variety. Having said that, I know some of you have been kind as to send me private emails about how Jesus and the Holy Spirit can save my soul. I appreciate the concern but my soul is quite beyond redemption I assure you.

Hi Cornel,
Yet, you (and the other four on the aethesit / agnostic side) do not answer the two questions in my post. They are not trick questions. I would welcome an edited version of your private post (few perspectives at a time) as you make many valid points.
