Agnosticism...

The only intellectually honest way of thinking. There is no crime in admitting that there are things unknown or unknowable.

I don't agree with atheists. I don't agree that it is fact that there is not something out there or in there that created everything. Whether that be a god, energy, or some form of being or thing that our minds just cannot conjure. It is in fact unknowable.

I don't agree with Deists. Obviously all of the organized religions are thousands of years old and a complete fabrication of man. I don't have any issue with someone who believes there is a god, but to subscribe to all of the stories of their dogma is up there with believing the Lord of the Rings really happened. Its ludicrous.

So here I am. The ever skeptic. The only sensible of approach of admitting to the unknown instead of pretending it to be know. Ah, yes, honesty.

Say what you will about the tenets of National Socialism, dude. At least it's an ethos.

So pretending to know is more admirable than not?

It actually IS standing for something. Read The Emperor Has No Clothes.

Even believers, like me, understand that the only logical position a non-believing person can take while maintaining philosophical standards would be the agnostic position.

what is the opposite of intellectually honest?

If agnosticism is intellectually honest, then everything else is intellectually dishonest?

[QUOTE][B]Intellectual dishonesty[/B] is [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dishonesty"]dishonesty[/URL] in performing intellectual activities like thought or communication. Examples are:

[LIST]
[*]the advocacy of a position which the advocate knows or believes to be false or misleading
[*][COLOR=Red][B]the advocacy of a position which the advocate does not know to be true, and has not performed rigorous due diligence to ensure the truthfulness of the position[/B][/COLOR]
[*]the conscious omission of aspects of the truth known or believed to be relevant in the particular context.
[/LIST]
[/QUOTE]In which case is it not intellectually dishonest to assume that every other philosophy is intellectually dishonest?

Ergo, Zod is being intellectually dishonest.
