Strong agnosticism (also called hard agnosticism, closed agnosticism, strict agnosticism, absolute agnosticism)—the view that the question of the existence or nonexistence of god(s) is unknowable by nature or that human beings are ill-equipped to judge the evidence. Weak agnosticism (also called soft agnosticism, open agnosticism, empirical agnosticism, temporal agnosticism)—the view that the existence or nonexistence of God(s) is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable, therefore one will withhold judgment until/if more evidence is available. Apathetic agnosticism—the view that there is no proof of either the existence or nonexistence of God(s), but since any God(s) that may exist appear unconcerned for the universe or the welfare of its inhabitants, the question is largely academic anyway. Ignosticism—the view that the concept of God(s) as a being is meaningless because it has no verifiable consequences, therefore it cannot be usefully discussed as having existence or nonexistence. Model agnosticism—the view that philosophical and metaphysical questions are not ultimately verifiable but that a model of malleable assumption should be built upon rational thought. This branch of agnosticism does not focus on a deity's existence. Agnostic theism (also called religious agnosticism)—the view of those who do not claim to know existence of God(s), but still believe in such an existence. Agnostic atheism—the view of those who do not know of the existence or nonexistence of god(s), and do not believe in god(s). There are many forms of agnostic, just like there are many forms of any religion, such as paganism and christianity. Agnostics claim either that it is not possible to have absolute or certain knowledge of God or gods; or, alternatively, that while certainty may be possible, they personally have no knowledge. Agnosticism in both cases involves some form of skepticism. What are your views in agnostic. I think everyone is entitled to their own belief system and if you have faith in it, it is real. What are your opinions?

Well the real question is are you trying to dispute that there is a God? I know there is and have proof. You can too! Trouble is that you don't and because you don't have personal proof is why you cling to those blind leaders leading the blind. If you don't start seeking the TRUTH you will fall into the ditch with them. There is only ONE GOD and whether you like it or not, and whether the world likes it or not, His Name is Jehoshua the Messiah, better known in the Greek Tongue as Jesus the Christ. Oh yea, He is more than just "the Son of God", but it takes eyes to see, ears to hear, and Full-Assurance-In-The-Heart (FAITH) to know Him PERSONALLY. He dwells within but it is up to us to recognize Him. He speaks, but do you listen? In retrospect so does Satan and his. Open the door for He is knocking.
