My comment on "x" was in connection with the term "agnostic believer", which you supplied
I hope the following makes my meaning a little plainer, but please feel free to cross-examine:
As a signifiant every word we use is somehow a "placeholder"...
I agree, however in most cases the "signifié" is clearly definable and not subject to much tolerance for re-definition. Individuals with whom we have a relationship aren't in that category, as they change and develop.
For example: you and I have an online relationship, through this board. When I first became acquainted with your posts I was intrigued by your understanding of ancient texts. After a while we started interacting on threads, and were able to draw each other out, gaining a deeper understanding of one-another's position on subjects. I came to enjoy our correspondance and have really become quite fond of you. Yet we have never met outside of this pubic fora, and such a meeting could easily make-or-break such a relationship.
My point is simply this: In the case of "God" we have all these little slices and representations of who "He" is. I had read about "Him" all my life and finally got to a proper interaction stage nearly four years ago, finding that "He" was quite unlike the mental picture I had previously developed - that image was shattered. It's a relationship that continues to develop both on a personal level and through reading and hearing other people's slices.
However there are MANY great unknowns, which can lead to almost constant re-definition. What "God" meant to me four years ago is not anywhere near precisely what "God" means to me now, as a definition. Such are the joys of evolving relationships.
...nothing can rightly be said or known about "God".
I agree that any of our definitions are likely to be flawed and inaccurate (just as they usually are about fellow humans), however I wonder that your desire for "accurate knowledge" might be a little over-ambitious
My own box I put myself in is Mystic Agnostic
If I were choose a box it would be Christian Mystic. Pleased to meet ya
I have had too many experiences of a mystical or divine nature to not believe there is something interested in us.
Same here, only in my case there has been a strong identification with Jesus.
