The Game the Agnostic Plays

the agnostic

Whenever the atheist wants to appear more reasonable, he puts on the garb of the AGNOSTIC: agnosticism.

Agnosticism is the view that the existence of God, of the divine or the supernatural is unknown or unknowable.  Another definition provided is the view that “human reason is incapable of providing sufficient rational grounds to justify either the belief that God exists or the belief that God does not exist.”

The agnostic claims to be all about REASON and EVIDENCE.

“Agnosticism, in fact, is not a creed, but a method, the essence of which lies in the rigorous application of a single principle … Positively the principle may be expressed: In matters of the intellect, follow your reason as far as it will take you, without regard to any other consideration. And negatively: In matters of the intellect do not pretend that conclusions are certain which are not demonstrated or demonstrable.”
Thomas Henry Huxley

“Just show me some evidence and I’ll believe!”  is the cry of the agnostic–and the agnostic sounds so REASONABLE when he shouts.

BUT, there are some very BASIC problems with the apparent reasonableness of the agnostic.

1- The agnostic places all of his faith in evidence AS HE DEFINES IT.

ANY and ALL evidence which does not meet the definition of the agnostic is excluded and therefore,  he does not count it as evidence.

The evidence of the agnostic is the evidence of this world.  It is sensual: what can be touched, smelled, tasted, seen or heard.  So then, the agnostic disregards ALL evidence which is not based on his very UNRELIABLE, fickle senses. (And where the agnostic might acknowledge the undependability of human senses elsewhere, when it comes to his CREED–and yes, it IS a CREED (regardless of what agnostics may claim)–he will hold up his senses AS IF they were as solid as Sears.

2- When the agnostic automatically disqualifies, and then excludes, all evidence EXCEPT what he determines is valid, what he is doing is disqualifying that in which he does not BELIEVE; i.e., faith.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. “
–Hebrews 11:1

Basically, by setting the terms of the debate, the agnostic is REALLY rigging the game in favor of his superstitions and prejudices.

3- The agnostic–like his brother-in-arms, the atheist–is armed with a seemingly never-ending supply of deceptive stories to offer as “evidence.”

And these stories may sound reasonable–as long as 1- one believes as the agnostic does; and, 2- one does not examine the stories too closely.

4- Because the agnostic is an unbeliever, he can not experience the evidences of faith.  And because the agnostic cannot experience faith, he disregards ANY and ALL instances where faith outweighs the simple “evidence” of this world.

IF the agnostic was objective (as he pretends to be) and interested in playing on a level field, he would not rig the terms of the debate so.

SO, basically the agnostic is someone who is caught up in the deceptions and superstitions of the world and is trying to pass himself off as someone who is able to change his stripes IF ONLY he is given the EVIDENCE to do so.

BUT, because he has NO faith, he is UNABLE to change.

Therefore, the agnostic is merely an atheist dressed up to appear REASONABLE to others.

“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.”
–Psalm 14:1

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
