i'm agnostic. learn the difference
GRP you're a deist right? i'm curious how you arrived at such a belief. agnosticism makes the most sense to me because it leaves room open for discovering a deity through some means, but deism is still a positive assertion that a deity of some form exists. by what means do you defend this?
i make no attempt to defend it bc it's a personal thing. i p much believe ppl can believe whatever the fug they want so long as they're not using their beliefs to fug up grade school science or bomb poor ppl halfway around the world and instead keep it to themselves (which is of course why both religious fundamentalism and imperialist atheism piss me off so much). not everything has to be the easily defensible product of logic or critical thought; just the stuff used to exploit and oppress others imho.
