    that probably doesn't make much sense though since i'm not a philosophy major or anything, it's something i really want to get a degree in after my current degree though.
    It's good that you are open to it. What you are talking about reminds me of a claim by Sextus Empiricus. While it may not be possible to know or know that you do not know, you can continue searching for something that might be knowable. If this kind of thinking interests you, you should look into philosophical skepticism and more specifically Pyrrhonian skepticism, rather than trying to get comfy in agnosticism.

    So the idea that it is not possible to know the nature of reality as it relates to higher powers is not related to knowledge about the nature of reality?

    Everything is a belief. The idea that I won't go plummeting into space on the next rotation is a belief. It's irrelevant.

    Like I said, I was just citing the original Huxley meaning. Since then it's been redefined and evolved by a number of people. This came up recently in my job because our company claims to be "technologically agnostic," meaning that we don't push Mac or Windows specifically. I pointed out to my boss that he doesn't know what the word means, and that what he means to say is technologically secular.

    Technologically agnostic, of course, would mean that we--as a fucking IT consulting firm--don't believe we can have knowledge of the existence of technology.

    Like atheists, even most agnostics are rooted in some belief. You believe that is impossible for humans to know whether or not God exists.

    An important question to ask yourself if you are agnostic and think you know it all because of your belief is... Is it possible for humans to know truth?
    Your points here are kind of silly, as Pot pointed out. You're interpreting "belief" in a bizarre way.

    Um. That's so cheap. MP, you have to do it. I'd totally throw in $10 if it meant an epic Coachellapeople breakfast or something.

    Is this anywhere near the dead end road that stops at that crazy beach up by Princeville? My parents always make us go up there, but we have a place on the southshore, so that car ride makes me car sick and I can't even think about it now it's so bad

    No. That is not what I said and if you found it to be implied, that was not what I was implying. I was referring to the reason they believed it, not the belief itself.

    If you believe that everything is a belief, then are there degrees to which specific believes are plausible?

    I'm proud of having a GED because it helped me avoid dealing with jerkoffs who go around spouting uninterpretable pseudo-intellectual babble, like yourself.

    There is nothing convincing about an ad hominem argument.

    That is not an ad hominem argument. See, this again is why I'm glad I didn't bother going to college. You went, paid tons of money, and don't know what the fuck you're talking about.

    An ad hominem attack would be if I said your argument was invalid because you're dumb. Which you are. But that's not what I said. What I said is that your argument is invalid because it is incomprehensible babble. That is a criticism of your argument, not you.

    Would you like me to keep pointing out the advantages of a GED? =)

    Now what's even funnier about all this is before you falsely accused me of an ad hominem argument, you yourself were guilty of trying to invalidate my argument on the grounds that I only have a GED. Which, since you supposedly studied argument or debate, you should know is an argument from authority--which IS invalid.

    So, so far you've misappropriated ad hominem in your attempt to defend your own argument from authority, all in the interest of proving that what you're saying is remotely knowledgeable logic.

    Good work, putz.

    I got paid to go to college, but that is not the point here. You are using a simplistic understanding of an "ad hominem argument" to try to serve you own position. By criticizing my argument on the basis that it is "incomprehensible babble", you are in turn criticizing me, my ability to argue and my intelligence in general.

    I wasn't trying to invalidate your argument on the grounds that you only have a GED. There was no point in trying to argue against your post because it was ad hominem, so I took a cheap shot at you.

    A simplistic understanding of ad hominem? I'm sorry, would you care to enlighten me on some other meaning of it? Cause one doesn't exist. Ad hominem means attacking the man and not the argument. I attacked the argument and threw in a commentary on you as a person. My comment on your person was not my argument.

    If I explain why your argument is stupid and then say you're stupid, that doesn't make it an ad hominem attack.

    maybe you should go back to school.

    It not about meaning. It's simplistic because you were defining it to only mean a direct abusive personal attack, like your example of calling me dumb. You attacked the argument by calling it "silly" and said "I was interpreting "belief" in a bizarre way"...

    You never explained anything. I tried to clarify, but your attack remained the same.

    Kauai has to be my favorite island. I have been to Maui, Oahu and Kauai, alot of people say Maui is better because it is more of the party island but I can party anywhere, Kauai is just beautiful, and less tourists then the other two islands. Although being afraid of birds all the wild roosters freaked me out a bit.
