Re: Atheist or agnostic?

Unread post

MA: "I see no particular reason why an agnostic shouldn't believe in something while acknowledging that they have no material evidence for that thing."That greatly depends on both the thing, and the reasons given. I believe in things for which there is no material evidence, since my belief is based on reasoning and critical thinking. I've found more reasons for the non-existance of God than I do for the existance of God. The answer can't be known, so I am agnostic, but reasoning leads me to be non-theist.
