New here...just sayin' Hello.

New here...just sayin' Hello.
I see atheists and theists are welcome...and I am hoping that people with an agnostic perspective are at least tolerated, if not welcome. 

My take on the "Do any gods exist" is:

I do not know if any "gods"** exist or not;

I see no reason to suspect gods CANNOT EXIST...that the existence of gods is impossible;

I see no reason to suspect that gods MUST EXIST...that gods 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.


**When I use the word "god" I mean "The entity (or entities) responsible for the creation of what we humans call 'the physical universe'...IF THERE IS SUCH AN ENTITY."

Hello.

You sound more like an ignostic than an agnostic.

Enjoy your stay.

None of that sounds particularly unreasonable, so I think we can let you stay *ominous music* for now. 

Welcome!

Thank you all for the welcomes. 

Gonna figure out the protocols here...and how to navigate. Then I hope to become an active member.

I'll look over some recent posts and see if I have any replies that will get me started.

As we say here in New Jersey...see youse around.

Hello, Frank. Welcome to AF.

I hope you start a thread or something. It really helps us learn a bit about new members and what sort of things are on their mind.
