My position on agonisticism is that its a refuge for weak minded fence sitters too lazy to care about having an opinion.

..... Many people have and/or have had religious experiences - they KNOW as a result of these experiences that God exists (for them) had their prayers, or even just wishes, answered, and had help when no other help was available. For them the 2-way communications with God are very precious; they do what God wants them to do and they NEVER do what God does NOT wants them to do. That may be quite different from what clergy keeps preaching and practicing.
..... Many others never had such experiences, never had any of their prayers (if any) answered, and these people therefore KNOW that (for them) there is no God. And they act accordingly.

IN a sentence, there are insane people and there are sane people.

gnostic is with knowledge

agnostic is without knowledge

neither is about beleif - but rather, what we know or whether we can know.

agnostics are the spiritual equivelant of bisexuals - willing to go either way

yes, for a bisexual person to commit to one person, it is to pick a side on some levels

I had a conversation withe my brother in law - he was/is one of those has to be more whatever than you type people.

So, he would insist he was bisexual and he was married to a woman.

One time, at a party with his friends, he was pontificating about the worst thing a person could do to a bisexual was to force them to be faithful because it meant they couldn't express half of their sexuality.

I'd had enough of his nonsense, so I said loudly, so you're telling me that your wife is cruel to you because you say you're bisexual and she's keeping you from all the men you could be sleeping with?

I thought marriage was about 2 people exclusive of all others, and since you aren't aruging to get to sleep with other women, then why does it matter if you are also not sleeping wiht other men?

so that was the end of that party performance piece

there is nothing quite like hoisting someone by their own petard

unsurprisingly, my brother in law, never invites me anymore

I ruined all his best party shock schticks, and blocked him from glomming onto one of mine.

I like to posit that art is the artificat of actual art - which is the idea - and the physical item is the execution or artificat of the art idea

Really? I am not on the fence about religion. Do I KNOW there is nothing we don't yet understand? Yes, I do know that. What is god to me is not one thing resembling the organized religion gods. I only call it "god" because it's convenient. Is there something huge we don't yet understand? Is there incredible stores of information that we don't comprehend yet? Most we NEVER will? Yes. Is that unknowable? Yes. That is Ok with me. It just awes me more. Is that my god? It's not my GOD. It's my inspiration, my spiritual compass. Am I on the fence? Could I at any moment fall into the grasp of a cult (name your religion). No freaking way. I know in my mind there is no GOD. Do I know what there really is? What this all really came from? No. But I know it is, that is not up for debate. And to try and seek answers through science is my religion.

If agnostics/ignoramuses are the equivalent of bi-sexuals, atheists are like transvestites or others too disgusting to mention.

It is about 2 people becoming one. I am also bi, but in 27 years of marriage never even considered "stepping out" on my wife. Doesn't mean we haven't had fun with others, we just do it together.

From a hedonist perspective it probably doesn't matter if it were man with beast.
