Well, SOME (not all, not even most, but some) agnostics that I've encountered are arrogant. Please don't take offense. Some people in every group are arrogant. But, as a Christian, I've encountered some hateful agnostics who are like "I'm smarter than you because I'm an agnostic." I get that you're probably not like that. But some people have had bad experiences.
They think we just can't make up our minds what we want to believe. That's their problem, not ours.
When people are polled as to what kind of person they would elect as President, an Atheist comes in dead last. They would vote for a female president, a Hispanic president, a gay president, a Mormon president, even a Muslim president before an Atheist. I don't understand why, there must be some innate feeling of hatred for someone who doesn't conform to religion, or some mistrust that a non-religious person can have morals. But in your case they probably just don't know what Agnostic means.
Doubt is threatening to their way of life, I guess.
Agnostic is simply defined as being someone who doesnt know about the existance of god in which case people can fall into that catagorie regardless of wether or not they belive in a god... if you dont belive in a god but dont know for sure wether or not there is a god then you are an agnostic athiest.
Unfortunately agnostocism and athiesm are not spectrum knowing something and beliveing something are not the same thing I understand your desire not to catagorize your self, but just saying agnostic doesnt actually mean much. By the way its defined you fall into catagorie as nostic theist, agnostic theist, agnostic athiest, or a nostic athiest.
tell them myob-then walk away and don't look back
it will take a while to form constructive criticism to their nonsensical jargon so often better to not mention it.. they are CERTAIN we are going to hell
Some confuse agnostic as athiest. It just means you dont have a specific religion, basically. No big deal.
You're in the wrong room. I say I'm an atheist and everyone around me says the same.
I don't know why because agnostic don't harbor animosity towards faith or god but rather are skeptical. They neither believe or disbelieve in God or think that is really unknowable
Honestly, no one really cares.
you mean on EP? don't pay attention to the zealots, LoL.
Ugh.. then what (or where) is "here"? that are you referring to?
