Yes I know. Never discuss religion or politics, but if you’ve seen my Facebook page you will know my political views, and I discuss them. Frequently.
Let me make it clear from the outset, I am not a Christian, nor am I a Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist, Jain, Pagan, Jedi or Sikh. I am an Agnostic.
What is an Agnostic I hear you ask?
An Agnostic is someone who believes in God, but does not follow a prescribed religion, or is perhaps undecided.
The purpose of this blog is not to convert you to my way of thinking.
The truth is what you believe, and your truth is no less valid than my truth.
So, why am I an Agnostic? Let me try to explain. Stay with me on this and hopefully it will become clear.
I have a brother.
His name is Mark.
I call him Boot (family nickname).
My siblings call him ‘brother’
My parents called him ‘son’
My grandparents called him ‘grandson’
My Aunts call him ‘nephew’
Their children call him ‘cousin’
His wife called him ‘darling or ‘dearest’
And probably some pillow name that I don’t know.
My wife calls him ‘brother in law’
My children call him ‘uncle’.
His children call him ‘dad’.
His grandchildren call him ‘granddad’.
There are a lot of other people who have different titles for him but I won’t belabour the point.
By my count that is 14 titles for one man.
Each of the people have a different relationship and perspective of my brother.
I have never wanted to kill any of them because they relate to him in a different way to me.
I believe there is one God, and it does not matter what title is given to God, be it God, Allah, Jehovah, Yawah, The Force or Kali, as long as people addressing God recognise a supreme entity.
Your God and my God are the same, only our hearts are different.
Atheists, please don’t imagine that God is weeping or losing any sleep.
God does not need your belief to exist.
So I am an Agnostic because it appears that whenever man gets involved with anything there is an argument that somehow becomes violent and I don’t want anyone to get between me and God.
So stop killing fellow humans in the name of God!!
Eddie is an Agnostic who believes in the existence of God. Eddie has spoken to God and believes that God loves Eddie, but is sometimes disappointed.

“An Agnostic is someone who believes in God, but does not follow a prescribed religion, or is perhaps undecided.” This is the first time I have ever heard that agnostics believe in God. The term agnostic means exactly the same as atheist, but was introduced many years ago because “atheist” sounded too confrontational. Some guy by the name of Neil de Grass Tyson says he might be an agnostic, because there is still a chance that a god exists. The dream of God is one thing, but believing in an eternal soul and resurrection? GROG
