Why you can't be an agnostic
Human Consciousness and the end of Materialism
Agnosticism - A definition
|Thomas Henry Huxley|
I will achieve that by analyzing the nature of "knowledge" and by showing that there can be no such thing as "certain" knowledge: for us to say something about anything, we must have faith in something! There is nothing for which we have ALL the evidence required for us to "know" - after all who decides which is the level of knowledge required for someone to "know"? Noone.
Faith or Evidence?
The myth of absolute knowledge
The implications to agnosticism
Agnosticism is incompatible with human relations
And do not forget that no matter how many times an agnostic might say "I don't know" he still cannot hide the fact that he/she constantly makes deliberate choices in his life: an agnostic who "does not know" if there is a God goes or goes-not to the church. So in his mind he does have an inclination towards one of the two possibilities. In the same way an agnostic who "does not know" if causality exists in the worlds, looks for cause or does not look for causes in his everyday life. So in most cases the "I don't know" is accompanied by more than specific choices that are made.
I am eagerly waiting for comments of agnostics who believe that I am wrong and they are right...
I will gladly hear anyone who can propose an objective criterion upon which we can rely so as to decide in which questions we are "allowed" to say "I know" (or, at least, have an opinion) and in which we are not. Feel free to post comments below.
