Agnostics are the enemy of civilization

“Agnosticism is very close to the religious dogma that the ways of god are unfathomable, that human reason is fallible, and that man requires a different, non-scientific, path to the truth — such as faith. Agnostic followers are always allies of the church. The false notion that anything is unknowable undermines science and reinforces theology. It inclines man to faith and induces men to trust religious doctrines. The church does not anathematize the agnostic and even the Roman Catholic church will accept the agnostic in its fold.”
Madalyn Murray O’Hair.

Miriam Webster’s. ‘a person who holds the view that any ultimate reality (as God) is unknown and probably unknowable’ The OED. ‘a person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God.’ The free online dictionary: ‘One who believes that it is impossible to know whether there is a God’ Dictionary.com: ‘A person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena.’ Collins. ‘a person who holds that knowledge of a Supreme Being, ultimate cause, etc, is impossible’

This is the true definition of “popular” agnosticism. It’s a cop out. They’re certainly taking a position, but it’s a position of apathy, ignorance or deception disguised as intellectual honesty.
Ian Harris takes a similar view:
“Agnosticism can end up providing a complacent perch for anyone who has neither the inclination nor the imagination to wrestle with the central religious questions of an age.”Likewise Laurence Twaddle in his book ‘Making Sense of English in Religion’ has this to say:’Agnosticism is often expressed as an indication of an open mind — but it could equally be interpreted as the last refuge of a lazy mind, unwilling to pursue the arguments to one end or the other.’Agnosticism is supposedly a position you reach because you have thought about religion, science, philosophy etc but more often than not it shows just the opposite. Agnostics are often ignorant of the very reasons you can’t prove or disprove God.

What Is Secular Humanism?

Secular Humanism is a term which has come into use in the last thirty years to describe a world view with the following elements and principles:

  • A conviction that dogmas, ideologies and traditions, whether religious, political or social, must be weighed and tested by each individual and not simply accepted on faith. 
  • Commitment to the use of critical reason, factual evidence, and scientific methods of inquiry, rather than faith and mysticism, in seeking solutions to human problems and answers to important human questions.
  • A primary concern with fulfillment, growth, and creativity for both the individual and humankind in general.
  • A constant search for objective truth, with the understanding that new knowledge and experience constantly alter our imperfect perception of it.
  • A concern for this life and a commitment to making it meaningful through better understanding of ourselves, our history, our intellectual and artistic achievements, and the outlooks of those who differ from us.
  • A search for viable individual, social and political principles of ethical conduct, judging them on their ability to enhance human well-being and individual responsibility.
  • A conviction that with reason, an open marketplace of ideas, good will, and tolerance, progress can be made in building a better world for ourselves and our children.
