Top 10 Agnostic Quotes

Agnostic typically refers to a philosophical stance that asserts the existence of something beyond empirical evidence or the inability to know with certainty whether a deity or deities exist. In simpler terms, an agnostic is someone who neither believes nor disbelieves in the existence of God or gods, stating that it is impossible to know for sure. It's a position often seen as being separate from atheism (the belief that there is no God) and theism (the belief in a god or gods). Instead, agnostics focus on the lack of evidence or the limitations of human understanding when it comes to the divine.
