This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Agnosticism page.


About fifteen quotations and not a single reference. Is this par for the course on Wikiquote? Or is the entire project useless? I’ll sign with an IP as this page does not make it seem to make worthwhile even the tiny the hassle of creating an account.

This article seems to contain the common misrepresentation of the term agnostic. Theism and atheism are opposing sides. You can be an agnostic atheist, i.e. you do not believe in a god, but you have no knowledge one way or the other. An agnostic theist similarly believes in a god, but has no knowledge one way or the other. Agnostic is not an alternative to atheist or theist.
An Agnostic Atheist is called an Atheist, and an Agnostic Theist is called a Theist. Its not a melding or the middle ground, it is a seperate belief system. 19:35, 2 November 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
