Evidence to the contrary would persuade him though, which means he is nowhere near as closed minded as some of the people who slate him.
Worth repeating. I imagine there's going to be some moments of thoughtful introspection over this thread.
When it boils down to it, the agnostic is just not sure about anything relating to god(s). And some feel that if there is a god, god is very distant and not involved in the maintenance of the material universe, especially the conscious part.
I have teetered at various places on the spectrum between belief and agnosticism since I was 14. I wasn't rasied a JW, so thank goodness I let go of Jehovah and the JW concept of God. The years I spent as a JW were the most agnostic years I've had. Violent, perfectionist, jealous Jehovah never seemed real to me and I had to literally force myself to pray during those years.
