it just means don't get arrogant, we as a planet don't knows shit, if god created existence than he created everything i'm only smart enough to belive that he exists but that since we're stuck in such bullshit as arguing over message board, that we're not close enough to him to even have a clue, so to call an agnostic confused is pure ignorance


Being agnostic and confused are one in the same.

I assume, though, to be agnostic you probably have to have an opinion based on the evidence at hand.

If you dont care, then your probably not agnostic.

blunted - nope. you arent agnostic.
'not giving a fuck' is one of the forms of atheism.

there are 2 defintions of atheism, one of which pertains to those who argue that there is NO god what-so-ever and that believing in one is silly.
the other form of atheism suits you, people who dont know and dont care to know.
here is the one that suits you:

Atheist
A person who has no belief in a God or Goddess. Just as a newborn has no concept of a deity, some adults also have no such belief. The term "Atheist" is derived from the Greek words "a" which means "without" and "Theos" which means "God." A person can be a non-Theist by simply lacking a belief in God without actively denying God's existence. This is the definition of Atheism used by most Atheists.

correct.
if you state that there absolutely can not be a diety of any kind, an agnostic will probably argue against you. stating that it is possible, but they dont know if its true.

if you state that there is definitely a god, once again an agnostic will argue against you stating that you cant prove it.

wrong use of words then of course agnostic means being confused, but i meant this in earthly terms, for someoneelse to say they weren't confused, would mean they were bullshitting(especially for them to be on earth let alone bullshiting on a message board). to not know god is to be knowlegable about god, there is no better way to put it. all we may know are simple basic things. but please don't claim to know the right path, how do i get to saturn again?, please don't say you're close enough to god to know what it may be...

i agree with the 'agnostic' point of view
but i dont care either way if god exists or not...

if it ever can be proven for fact i will change my view and belive in a god
if they cant well we will never know


hmmmm

and who cares how to get to saturn. that has nothing to do with god, unless you're pagan. this thread isnt about paganism.
