    Oh, please. Saints from Peter, Thomas to Mother Teresa have doubted. It's not black and white. I doubt, myself. I like to believe that there's something that cares about us, but I can't be totally sure there is in objective reality and it's not just my own imaginings. But I hope to find out one day.

    I wish there were more religious agnostics, but most aren't.

    I consider myself a philosophical agnostic and Socratic skeptic I believe in a 'Source' some call God(s), but everything is one the table and in pencil.

    I think there are, however, a lot of theistic agnostics that are not drawn to any particular religious ideology.

    This comes close to my view, because I believe any religious ideology that tries to describe what God(s) is or is not, is flawed from the fallible human perspective. The belief in the undefinable 'Source' in Taoism and the Baha'i Faith are more reasonable from my perspective.

    I've always been somewhat puzzled by the human desire to "nail down" the gods, so as to control them. As it seems to me that they are far more useful to us (versatile, applicable, etc.) when left undefined.
