  •  I'm with you, 'agnostic' is a wishy-washy term (6+ / 0-)

    It literally means 'don't know'. But what is it the question that you don't know the answer to? It's: Does God exist?

    But what is meant by the term 'God'. For any definition or description of God that I've heard, I'm confident in saying there's no such thing.

    It's only by making the term so vague or general as to be virtually meaningless that the agnostic position becomes tenable, IMO. IOW, "I don't know the answer to the question that you cannot properly formulate."
