I do not pretend to know where many ignorant men are sure—that is all that agnosticism means.
I am agnostic and tend to look at existance from every direction I possibly can. One conclusion I've arrived at is that;
The human 'ego' is so immense that "man" regards any smattering of sidelight pertaining to the essence of the cosmos, as 'definitive'.
He attempts to emulate what he believes to be his intellect.
Then he will go to extremes to push his so called insight and minimal knowledge upon others who may have another point of view.
Please, always remember..... Everything Is open to Interpretation.
"You look at the floor and see the floor. I look at the floor and see molecules"
"We know nothing at all. All our knowledge is but the knowledge of schoolchildren.
The real nature of things we shall never know."
There is also a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear
and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened........
Appearance of the Universe.
With that said;
What might be next exclude believers of bigfoot, comments on sentient beings on Mars, those who swear they have seen shadow people or UFOs ?
Maybe ATS should censor those who believe in Fairy existence and "Reptillians"
Don't be mistaken, Belief, is Faith,that something truly exists.
You could "control" the issue you have with folks voicing religious beliefs, that don't coincide with your belief, by constructing your own
conspiracy site that only accepts comments, arguments and proof positive (either way) from people with exactly your perspective. Then you can censor
all other thought expressed there.
This could alleviate you of any ire you carry for all others who you find so vexing.
Your world comes across to me as so very small.
You don't know what you don't know !
