Statement of Beliefs:
Agnosticism is a legitimate religious belief. We do not know because we cannot know.
The ultimate truth about the existence of a Supreme Being is unknowable. Recognizing this, we can free ourselves from a fruitless
search and, indeed, no longer care about answering the question. The basic tenants
of our religion are summed up in our Articles of Faith.
Articles of Faith:
1. The existence of a Supreme Being is unknown and unknowable. To believe in the existence of a god is an act of faith. To believe in the nonexistence of a god is likewise
an act of faith. There is no evidence that there is a Supreme Being, nor is there evidence there is not a Supreme Being. Faith
is not knowledge. We can only state with assurance that we do not know.
2. If there is a Supreme Being, then that being appears to act as if apathetic to events
in our universe. All events in our Universe, including its creation, can be explained with
or without the existence of a Supreme Being. Thus, if there is indeed a God, then that god has had no more impact than no
god at all. To all appearances, any purported Supreme Being is indifferent to our Universe and to its inhabitants.
3. We are apathetic to the existence or nonexistence of a Supreme Being. If there is a God, and that God does not appear to care, then there is no reason to concern ourselves with
whether or not a Supreme Being exists, nor should we have any interest in satisfying the purported needs of that Supreme Being.
