Ignorance is…well, it’s something.

Part of the fun of being an agnostic is being wildly ignorant of things that others are well versed in. What’s a communion veil? What’s Ash Wednesday again? How does that whole salvation business work again? But on occasion, the ignorance of the agnostic works against her. For example, an agnostic who gets all excited about visiting a synagogue would do well to remember that the Jewish holy day is Saturday, not Sunday. She would also do well to remember this before, say, Saturday evening.

Having done nothing of the sort, I missed my opportunity to visit the Jews this week. So instead, I visited the Catholics. More on this soon, except to say that what with Ash Wednesday this past week, it was probably a better choice. Right then! Catholics ahoy!

    You are learning and that is positive. Learning means you will have missteps along the way.

    I am a Christian … so, take this for what it is. I would assume there are plenty of agnostics out there who might take offense at being labeled as ignorant. 😉

    Check out these definitions for agnostic from dictionary.com …

    1. a person who holds that the existence of the ultimate cause, as God, and the essential nature of things are unknown and unknowable, or that human knowledge is limited to experience.

    2. a person who denies or doubts the possibility of ultimate knowledge in some area of study.

    From what I’ve read so far, I don’t think you fit this category. Definitely not atheist … but what to classify you as???

    Maybe you should seek a term that better describes a person who is on a quest to find what is true by searching everywhere? 😉

    Go with God,
    Donald B
