Different from atheists, agnostics doubt the existence of God or gods.

Sort of, if your agnostic you aren't really sure if therwe is a god. But if you believe in a higher power (doesn't have to be a god from a religion) then you are no longer agnostic
No one founder of agnosticism has existed. The word is a variant of agnosis, which simply means "not knowing," and people use it in reference to their belief that a person cannot truly know whether or not a god does or does not, or gods do or do not, exist. That is strong agnosticism. Weak...
Someone who doesn't know whether god exists is called agnostic. Someone who needs evidence to prove it is an atheist. People who are not sure if there is a god are called agnostics. An agnostic doesn't necessarily believe there is a God but doesn't rule out the possibility. An atheist believes...
Answer: There is nothing wrong with not believing in a god. If you are able to appreciate the beauty of the universe, without the need to attribute that beauty to a god, then that is your choice and you shouldn't let people tell you you are wrong or evil or immoral for doing so. Many, many...
Yes He basically lists all the classical proofs of God's existence: ontological, cosmological, the argument of the design andnecessity- then refutes them (really quite well) and also refutes the factthat Jesus was the nicest and kindest man who ever lived. It israther convincing and a very good...

It's is wrong to cause other living things to needlessly suffer. This is common sense, if you cannot figure this out with the help of arcane literature (or if said literature encourages it), I suggest you seek professional help. (I asked for an answer with some form of proof or logic behind it....

Keep reminding yourself that you don't know everything that the other person has seen, heard or experienced--and how those things affect how the person thinks and reacts. If you knew more of the background, you might be more tolerant of their differences from you.
Not sure what you mean by "illuminity", however both the terms "illuminati" and "illumination" are frequently encountered in searches on philosophy and religion. Illumination is a subjective experience where one "becomes aware" of the mystical/supernatural/divine, usually to the extent that the...
You weren't. Just like anything before it was constructed. The concept of "you" is simply shorthand for "this present arrangement of material we call you". After you are dead you will once more become just random matter.

Since atheists are rarely grouped together, I will assume you are referring to abuse of atheists as individuals ? Abuse of individual atheists has been going on for 1000s of years, back in biblical times, (the bronze ages), atheist could be burned, tortured, thrown to lions, etc. Lists of...
An agnostic would most likely say 'we do not know'. This is what the Bible says about judgment: Every individual person separates themself from God by doing things that are wrong. However, God loves us so much that He became a man, lived a perfect life, and died in our place to pay the penaltly...

Unanswered prayers can lead to atheism because mos people become desperate in there search for god. They however believe that if god can't answer their prayers then he can't exist. This however is a wrong way to take it because you don't know if the prayer will be answered later in life.
Secular humanists view sexuality as a part of human life, not subject to the arbitrary demands of an imaginary deity or the control of government. This does not mean that secular humanists are necessarily promiscuous. There are perfectly practical reasons to exercise caution about sex, since there...
I don't think there is an "official" Agnostic religion. There are groups such as the Rationalists or the Ethical Society that might discuss some of the same topics about human behaviour as theistic religions, without connecting them to the existence of God or a relationship with God. Unitarianism...
Well, skin believe it or not. Think it logically, if you peeled all the skin off any animal it would turn out to be a lot of flesh, the heart would look like like a full stop compared to the large bulk of skin.
There is no recognized 'leader' for agnostics.

There are also a number of vocal agnostics...

I am an agnostic. No religion truly gives a purpose. It is just a belief that is passed down generations. For an agnostic to not really care whether or not God truly exists is just a belief. So therefore. No it does not give any real purpose. But neither does any other religion....
No, because a baby's eyes are too poorly developed to see very far in front of its face. Also, because demons don't exist.
Quite often, yes - but consider that religious people are simply people that believe in SOMETHING superior; this may be a single supreme God, but it may also be a multitude of gods (like the ancient Greek religion, which still has some followers).
God, Yahweh, is the Creator. The devil is a fallen angel created by God. The Creator is always greater than the creature. I John 4:4 tells us, "He who is in you (God) is greater than he (Satan) who is in the world." "God in you" is only true if you know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Jesus is...

Buddhism at its very core--cessation of desire--is a philosophy, a way of life. This then is compatible with Atheism because it has nothing to do with the supernatural. However, Buddhism on the surface is a highly complex world religion. The Mahayana, Vajrapani, Pureland (etc.) branches of Buddhism...

People are Agnostic because they have no propper knowlage of god(s) and are sometimes doughtful about how the world was created? does god exist? is there a supernatural realm? and is there heaven and hell?
Yes. Anyone can, with hard work and determination. Difference of faith does not interfere with the efficiency of any 12-step programs.
