...glad to be joining a new forum. I've been participating in these things for the last two decades...discussing mostly politics, religion, and philosophy...the kind of stuff you are not supposed to discuss in non-cyber life. I'm an Independent who champions a very progressive agenda. I'm an agnostic who prefers not to use descriptors like "agnostic" except as a shortcut. My "agnosticism" is best expressed as... I do not know if there is a GOD or if there are gods; I do not know if there are no gods; I see no reason to suspect gods CANNOT EXIST; I see no reason to suspect that gods MUST EXIST...that they are needed to explain existence; I do not see enough unambiguous evidence upon which to base a meaningful guess in either direction... ...so I don't. Looking forward to discussions here.
