I don’t know but I am full of curiosity and wonder while remaining skeptical of excessive claims and suspicious of the claims of fellow humans, including myself while also being forgiving of such behavior and believing in the Power of belief, even if I don’t know my beliefs

I don’t know all the categories of agnosticism honestly or what level I’d be at, but I like things that bring hopeful fantastical thoughts without going overboard. I only drag out the “I’m gonna tell you like it is” when someone is being overly negative or nitpicky.

I tend to believe in analogies and i go far with them. For example, when someone speaks of the elegance of mathematics, that elegance, is for them, God. It serves the same function for them.

If someone says, “There’s nothing after life”, then to me, Nothing is their God. The concept of Nothing serves the same function for them as God might, except there’s a bad relationship there, full of bitterness.

I can’t say that God exists or doesn’t but I can speak of the function the concept serves. I can say with a sense of certainty that concepts/analogies occur in humans, among humans, for humans and a concept that becomes an Ideal with nearly unspeakable power equates to a God for them.

So, there you go. Is my agnosticism waning? It’s all how you look at things. For me, being a skeptical agnostic means, “I don’t know but I am full of curiosity and wonder while remaining skeptical of excessive claims and suspicious of the claims of fellow humans, including myself while also being forgiving of such behavior and believing in the Power of belief, even if I don’t know my beliefs”. tongue emoticon
