When I hear someone say they are agnostic, I hear them not ready to believe, but not ready to say definitively that it isn't true.Ray Ray,for those of us who are accustomed to always leaving the door open, agnosticism is the default position.For all intents and purposes, I am an atheist, but I recognize that is impossible to recreate the moment of creation. We might be able to provide a mechanistic explanation that can be recreated, but that will, at best, offer a plausible explanation.Although I find many current scientific theories and explanations highly plausible, I still try and weigh new evidence with an open mind, so an a(x) approach is employed with everything from evolution to string theory to god(s) and ghosts.The burden of proof to demonstrate that intelligent supernatural being(s) are responsible for the universe and/or continue to operate within it is upon those that believe it to be so. If provided with actual evidence I would be open to it as I am to any other evidence that doesn't fit with my previous understanding of how life and our universe work and function.I suspect this post is already Greeked out the wazoo.
