When people question me, I say I'm agnostic but in my heart, my religion is love and truth.

The one and only respectable, scientifically plausible and philosophically skeptical is the 2O argument.
That is the only safest place, an agnostic will get close to. YET.
"I am spiritual, I completely believe in a higher power, however it isn't humanoid and it doesn't give a damn what I do or don't do during my lifetime here - It's part of MANY other higher beings which exist in realms we do not have access to and higher planes of thought - As for justifying my thoughts, there is no need to"
Well in here, if you have read about the ATS Thesis they state "Deny Ignorance".
What is laughable are the following statements;
You cannot prove IT exists, but somehow, in a very magical turnaround, ITS traits have a more chance to exist or they exist already!
The most ludicrous use of argument of numbers is this; stupidity and ignorance is overated in faith, believe and Nationalism;
Many "believe it" = Truth and Fact.
Many have the same faith = Truth and Fact
All the people want immigrants to get out of the country = Truth and Fact.
But ofcourse. You dont have any duty to justify your beliefs!
Why would you? After all, you know it is all true and valid.
Nothing is truth? Oh really?
I thought this forum would be about serious individual who are intellectually enough to hold on psychological, philosophy and metaphysical truths; not more religious agendas; no more cracked-barrel philosophies.
Right so first again even though it doesnt EXIST; thus we need TOOLS for it.
First of all, a higher being is not an idea. It is a hypothesis bounded to be judged and wrecked upon the depth of the Seven Seas if needed and if required to just like the rest.
Well then, just accept them your beliefs then as a system for lunatics to hold their conversations without anyone, not even your self, holding a judgement upon.
Persisting that your "beliefs" are part, close, fall into a field of Truth, indicates that you still hold into your beliefs; if it is not Truth, then why hold it in the first place?
A belief does not have a back up that would be sufficient for it to be considered as"right or wrong"; no evidence, no spark for right or wrong answers.
They are both imaginary, both dont exist, ergo are not embodied in existence and cannot have, on serious manner, any actual hypothesis for "right and wrong" arguments.
Then at the end you get over-melo and over-dramatic.
Freedom of speech and liberty.
I am not God and I dont do God.
Secondly, this thread is about justifying being agnostic enough to be intellectually respected.
Belief and faith dont do that, neither using copy pasting the term "experience" to bastardise language and fill an empty pool with an infamous Water; not being into existence.
