So, you have dellusions of grandour that your beliefs are better than any Christian belief, or anyone else who believes in any religion... Got you...
Perhaps you should try to find what an agnostic is, because if you are fascinated and believe in quantum mechanics, and in other dimensions then you are not agnostic...
Correct. It is the stance that it can't be known, but if it is proven, will be acceptable that there was an instigator of everything. We just don't know, El, and that's the bottom line. You can claim to know, but it doesn't make your claims true.
Agnostic means "not known",
Yes, "the nature of things beyond the material cannot be known."......but....but.....
as in the nature of things beyond the material cannot be known.
It includes quantum mechanics. It includes other dimensions, and includes anything that is not physical in origin.
No?... you claimed that you are a better person than Christians because of your beliefs...
BTW, not all Christians believe the same things... Not all Christians believe that those who don't believe will burn in lakes of fire.
As do all sane, civilized people. (Although I don't believe they will burn in lakes of fire. I believe they will reincarnate and learn the lesson 'the hard way.')
There are certain circumstances where i draw the line, such as rapists, murderers, etc.
Good to know.
But because other people think and belief differently than me in religion I will not judge them. It isn't my place to do so.
You are painting all Christians with a broad brush and making claims which are simply not true.
What you implied with your comments is that all, or a majority of Christians do those things you claimed, and hence you are a better person.

Agnosticism is not just about the belief of God... Agnosticism is the belief that the nature of things beyond the material cannot be known... It includes quantum mechanics. It includes other dimensions, and includes anything that is not physical in origin.
Full Definition of AGNOSTIC
: a person who holds the view that any ultimate reality (as God) is unknown and probably unknowable; broadly : one who is not committed to believing in either the existence or the nonexistence of God or a god
: a person who is unwilling to commit to an opinion about something
Ultraviolet photo of a critical word from the earliest known extant manuscript of Tacitus (second Medicean, Laurentian library, Italy).
The photograph reveals that the word purportedly used by Tacitus in Annals 15.44, chrestianos ("the good"), has been overwritten as christianos ("the Christians") by a later hand, a deceit which explains the excessive space between the letters and the exaggerated "dot" (dash) above the new "i". The entire "torched Christians" passage of Tacitus is not only fake, it has been repeatedly "worked over" by fraudsters to improve its value as evidence for the Jesus myth.
The Chrestianos Issue in Tacitus Reinvestigated
A person who believes his/her beliefs are better suited to all children, hence you obviously just want to force your view on all children. Since you claim that Christianity damages children...
Anyway, this is getting way off topic. How about instead of claiming things that are not true you stick to demonstrating that Tacitus, among other non-Christian sources were all lying and that Jesus Christ did not exist.

Why go so vehemently hard to against this? People are against Christians/Jesus/religion or whatever - just don't follow a religion or believe anything. Why try to discredit an entire religion or faith system, specifically Christianity?
Because it damages millions of children who deserve to know the truth and are told lies from the cradle.
That's an opinion, raise your kids as atheists. Does this go for all religions, or just Christianity? I just see bitterness. Millions of kids raised as Christians are not as damaged as you perceive.

So in order from humanity to progress you have to destroy Christianity? Does the message of Jesus really hold back humans? The religion maybe... but does the message?
