Agnosticism

25 Jul

When people¬†knows that I do not follow any religion, most of them boldly said “so, you’re an atheist?”. My answer were always the same, “no, I’m not an atheist, I’m an agnostic”. Yes, many people doesn’t really familiar with this term, so I’m gonna explain. In religious term, agnostic could simply means, a perspective that a truth value for the existence or non-existence of any deity is unknown. For example, in my case, I do not believe nor dis-believe of the existence of God. I don’t even want to ask, let alone answer the question.

Asking about the existence of God is like asking about what happen before the big bang, or what lies beyond the singularity of a black hole. For most of you who is familiar with the theory must realize how impossible it is to answer that question with scientific answer. Even thou I think that the burden of proof is on the believer, I will never demand it from any of them. I learned from experience, I do not want to get caught between a rock and a hard place. We should just respect each others perspective and live each others life peacefully.
