Why I am Agnostic

Recently I changed my religious views on facebook and myspace to reflect agnostic. And here’s why.

Each person has their own religious beliefs. Every person in the world. That’s 6.6billion. To have a religious belief is to believe that it is truth and that it is the only truth. And each person customizes their own beliefs to their own way of believing them. That is to say, that each person has their own beliefs, even if they belong to a certain church.

That means that there are 6.6 billion ways of describing the world, a higher power(s), and the absolute truth to existence. And you are telling me that your’s is the right one?

I am not right, you are not right, no one is right. But to be agnostic is to acknowledge that there is no way of knowing the true answer. Not the answer that you think is true, but the truth for all of mankind. 6.6billion people’s truth.

Saying that I am agnostic is saying this. I have no idea how the universe started, and what invisible powers / forces govern all living things and so forth. I believe that the truth of existence is unknown and abstract.

Everyone will find their own truth to believe in, but this is mine.

  2. Is religious truth antipodal to “false”? Is such truth true in the sense of logic? If so, is God limited by logic? I argue in my posts that religious truth is sui generis (i.e., unique).
