A person who either (a) is undecided on their stance on the question of god's existence, or (b) is an atheist who prefers this word for its emphasis on "open mindedness" and/or its better connotation over the word "atheist". Unlike the commonly understood meaning of the word, an Agnostic is not merely a person who "claims that the existence of god is unknowable". Such a person is lacks a belief in god and is therefore atheistic. (see also - atheist). Reference section 1.4
One who believes that it is not possible to know if God exists. Either the evidence is insufficient, or our ability to analyze it objectively is impossible. It may also be defined as one who is undecided on the question of God.
AÂ person who claims that we cannot know whether there is a God or not. An agnostic ignores the natural knowledge of God that we have in nature (Romans 1:19-20) and our conscience (Romans 1:32; 2:14-15).
The word Agnostic derives from the negation of the Greek word [ gnosis], which means esoteric knowledge of higher things. Thus, a'gnostic means No-knowledge or not knowing. Agnostic s generally believe that no one can not know whether or not God exists. Some take a more liberal approach, saying "they" do not know, but that existence of a Deity might be possible.
