Is the word agnostic a cop-out ?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Michael Penn Aug 7. 44 Replies

I have heard many an atheist claim that is the case. Indeed I am sometimes guilty of using that word to describe myself in place of atheist. Occasionally one wants to minimize the impact of their…Continue

I find it interesting that the countries that rate highest on the World Happiness Report ( Denmark, Switzerland, Iceland, Finland, Canada ) are the least religious. Conversely, those that rate the…Continue

John Dumaker replied to Jonathan Simeone's discussion Can People of Color be racist?
"In a similar fashion it is culturally acceptable to mock Christians in America but not Muslims. Muslims are perceived as a vulnerable minority here, therefore, it is not permissible to openly mock Islam. Bill Maher makes jokes about all of the…"

John Dumaker replied to Jonathan Simeone's discussion Can People of Color be racist?
"" Glen, I actually agree with you.  There is no racial group who has been treated as unfairly, as consistently, throughout history in the USA, as African Americans". I beg to differ. Native Americans have been treated horribly."

John Dumaker replied to Ruth Anthony-Gardner's discussion Anarchists & AntiFascists protected clergy and students
"In no way do I, or does the ACLU, defend the acts of violence. Rather, it is defending the right to assembly and speech. Perhaps Antifa acted defensively for those church people but they, undoubtedly, also acted, and continue to act, as a goon…"

"Antifa may have good intentions. They are defending the targets of white nationalist bigotry - I agree. But they are violating the first amendment by attempting to silence people they disagree with. The ACLU even defended the right of the neo nazis…"

John Dumaker replied to Deidre's discussion Occam's Razor and Religion
"The idea behind Occam's razor is that simpler theories are more testable and thus preferable. Religion is certainly not testable. It is far simpler to say that Jesus did not rise from the dead, or ambulate across water, than to explain how…"

"No ! Because that is what we are fighting against. We want to preserve internet neutrality. No search engine should ban anything ! The web should be completely open. This psy ops stuff is the same thing as date gathering. Advertisement companies use…"

Atheist Humor

This is the place to post that hilarious irreligious YouTube video, an irreverent, anti-religious cartoon, or other humorous bit of media. Posts that do not reflect an atheist/irreligious theme will be deleted. (Don't make me go Old Testament.)See More

John Dumaker replied to Jonathan Simeone's discussion Racists
"Why does any of this surprise people? Most of the people that elected Donald knew exactly where he stands. He is more than just a racist. He bullied farmers off of their land in Scotland, to build his golf course, by harassing them 24 / 7 with heavy…"

John Dumaker replied to Ruth Anthony-Gardner's discussion Anarchists & AntiFascists protected clergy and students
"That is nice of them but antifa is a terrorist group. I abhor the ideology of white nationalism but throwing rocks at them is not a civil form of protest. Attempting to silence those you disagree with is a form of fascism. So, I view the clash of…"

John Dumaker replied to Jonathan Simeone's discussion Racists
"I agree that he is a racist against people of color. I did not vote for Trump and would like to see him gone. However, I find your post to be a bit too absolutist. You leave no room for grey areas. Life rarely comes in such stark black and white…"

"Is the word agnostic a cop out? OK, let me put this on you. As an atheist I cannot tell you that I know for a fact that there is no god. It is very probable that there is no god, but if I make an exact claim that no gods exist I have put the burden…"

Michael Penn replied to John Dumaker's discussion Is the word agnostic a cop-out ?
"Christians have it in their book (that old Buybull) that everyone believes in god. This means "their god" and they firmly believe that a day will come when we all believe in the same god. Which god? Their god."

About Me:
Nontheist / Atheist since the age of 9. I don't like the fervent following behind the Abrahamic religions. The mythology of pagan religions and philosophy of animistic religions is more interesting.
