There are so many differring definitons of agnostic out there, that I might consider myself agnostic concerning the knowledge of what agnostic "really" means...

I thought it means not believing in God because you can't prove he's really there...? I have no idea!

@Demety: I have met the following definitions for "agnostic" so far:

* not knowing whether god exists
* being undecided on the topic of god's existence
* not believeing in a god because of a lack of certainty of his/her/its existence
* believing that you cannot know whether a god exists
* believeing that it is unnecessary or not desirable to have knowledge about god
* believing that knowledge and faith are completely seperate fields

So it's actually a quite diverse field of ideas that may be labelled as "agnostic" and I guess that almost everybody can agree to aome of those while rejecting others.

@Apostatus: HOLY MACARONY. Well I only stated the definition that was taught at religion class... Listing all those things to little kids would have been too confusing.

@Demety: That's why I believe it is important to agree on definitions before beginning debates.
