#1  Postby RightRingAgnostic » Apr 23, 2016 5:45 pm

Hello,
I am an Agnostic that falls on the far right of the political spectrum. My worldview is Nihilism, which is a bit strange, considering my political views. I renounced all beliefs I held previously because I realized that I was, in fact, an Agnostic. Anyway, I am currently studying Sociology (in college) and Anthropology (on my own).

Welcome! If you don't mind my asking; do you believe one or more gods exist?

I am uncertain. Even if a god or several gods existed, I wouldn't care.

Do you hold the belief that one or more gods exist.
It's a yes or no question about what you believe, not about what you know.

Certainty relates to knowledge, not belief.
A person either believes a god or gods exist or they don't. It's true dichotomy and independent of whether you claim to have knoweldge on the subject.

If right ring is uncertain if he believes, then he does not believe.

He does not appear to realise this however.

Ah, so you're an atheist, as well as an agnostic. Thanks for clearing that up. :thumbup:

Of course I can't answer your question, but I can tell you that our new member's avatar is not merely a representation of a fasces, it was the flag of Mussolini's Partito Nazionale Fascista.

Greetings RightRingAgnostic! Nice to have you join us.

I'm like you in a few ways. I'm far more conservative than most people here. And I am not a New Atheist, I don't claim to know a thing about God.
Welcome.

If so, I've got a problem for you.
