Agnostics/Ignostics

A group existed just for Atheists, and one can be both an agnostic and an atheist. However I thought it would be nice to have a group just for the Agnostics/Ignostics.  Agnostic-atheists are free to join here too, as are deists, pandeists, etc.

Culturally I am a mormon, jewish agnostic pagan. The religion that I am nearest to is Tao /Tibetan Buddhist. Only because my understanding of there core belief is that you don't go to Hell, but if you here you are in Hell. I like what the great mathamatician, Paul Erdos always called god that mean SOB! But I really could care less if there is a god. I would prefer a goddess, but it makes me no never mind.

I am a-theistic in the sense I don't live my life caring on a daily basis whether there is a God or not. Agnostic is a better way to describe myself, however, because I think it isn't possible to say with absolute certainty one way or another if there is a God. I haven't died (the ultimate experiment), so how would I know? I am a skeptic and very much doubt there is a God, but it would be close-minded of me to say "I know" there isn't one. As a scholar, I have to be open to better evidence and then let it lead me, not the other way around. So, while I am usually more comfortable hanging out with atheists, I'm not one. Pagans are really cool too and usually sexy in a sexual sort of way.

I mostly just tell them the truth, that is if they are interested at all.  Most of the time they could care less about God or church.  A book worth looking into, of which I have not finished reading myself, is "Parenting Beyond Belief".

Question?  Those of you with children - How do approach your beliefs or non-beliefs when discussing them with your kids?

Welcome Vryhppynw!  Always nice to find kindred people to mingle with.

Hi Everyone,

Finally getting around to investigating the Groups.  This ones seems to be the best fit.  (I changed my user name today for privacy issues I was Beth before)  My beliefs are exactly as MikeUtah.  Also, find it all very interesting to contemplate, but don't let it affect my life and how I live at all.  Looking foward to some great conversations.

Hello ya'll!  I consider myself a pandeist:

Pandeism combines the major elements of deism and pantheism, and holds that a transcendent God existed before the universe was created, but that this God became the universe in the course of creating it, and thereby ceased to be an active participant in its operations.

To the theists out there, Deism and Pandeism is about the same as atheism or agnosticism.  I freely admit that I just don't know, but from the theories on God out there, deism/pandeism makes the most sense to me.  In some cases, I am an atheist/agnostic but still believe in an afterlife/immortality, and feel that reincarnation may also be at play in our existence if the former is true.  Some friends of mine invented the word "Postmortentialist" to describe that predicament.  Nice to be a part of the group.

My husband likes to call himself a Mechanist. I guess that's because he likes to take things apart and figure out how they work and if he can make improvements.
