And you are not agnostic.

I'm happy with that label right now, but I understand what you are saying.

By the way, I am in good company:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_agnostics

And in context, I am agnostic about the Christian faith, which is what we are discussing here.

They are either pregnant or they are not. You either believe in God or you don't.

But then there's this:

I flip flop between a 3 and a 5. I expect you are a 6.9

<<Christians will expect Christ to return the way he said he would.>>

And exactly how is that? Since I don't know, maybe you could tell me.


For example:

Matthew 24:27 For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 28 Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather.
29 “Immediately after the distress of those days

“‘the sun will be darkened,
and the moon will not give its light;
the stars will fall from the sky,
and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’[b]

30 “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth[c] will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.[d]

Stuff like that. The point is the text makes it very clear that there will be no mistaking the return.

Reading on, he also says:

34 Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.

Seems like "this generation" did pass away, but I leave that for others to explain... (and 1948 + 40 is no longer a valid explaination!).
