new word of the day: ignostic

Posted by at 4:34 PM Read our previous post
I just yesterday heard the word ignosticism.

Nutshell definitions:
  • An atheist is someone who doesn't believe that there is a "God."
  • An agnostic is someone who thinks that "God" is inherently unknowable.
  • An ignostic is someone who thinks that, until an adequate definition of the word "god" can be formulated in the first place, the question itself is not merely unknowable, but ultimately meaningless.

Hmm. . .
I guess I'm an ignostic.

far out!

I would like to add that I don't see this liberation from theological concerns as a liberation from ethical obligations. One has nothing to do with the other, in fact.
