Gnosticism (from Ancient Greek: γνωστικός gnōstikós, Koine Greek: [ˈkos], "having knowledge") is a collection of ancient religious ideas and systems which originated in the first century AD among early Christian and Jewish sects. These various groups emphasised personal spiritual knowledge over orthodox teachings, traditions, and ecclesiastical authority.

    Unlimited agnosticism, however, claims that God is completely unknowable. It says that it is impossible to know anything about God. Foundations of agnosticism The two most influential thinkers to advance the philosophy of agnosticism were David Hume () and Immanuel Kant (). While Hume was technically a skeptic, his arguments.   Agnosticism is a more intellectually honest form of atheism. Atheism claims that God does not exist—an unprovable position. Agnosticism argues that God’s existence cannot be proven or unproven—that it is impossible to know whether or not God exists. In this, agnosticism is correct. God’s existence cannot be empirically proven or disproven.

    Agnosticism has had some bad press in recent years. Nonetheless, I hope to show that agnosticism can be so formulated that it is no less philosophically respectable than theism and atheism. This is not a mere philosophical exercise; for, as it happens, the formulated position is--I think--the one to which I subscribe. Agnosticism definition, the doctrine or belief of an agnostic.

It took me a long time to say it. I've been an atheist for years and years, but somehow I felt it was intellectually unrespectable to say one was an atheist, because it assumed knowledge that one didn't have.

A robust, energetic agnosticism is a credit to God if there is one. Agnosticism is the philosophical view that it is unknown (or even, unknowable) whether any deities (god or gods) exist or not. Some people who call themselves "agnostic" say that it is not possible for anyone ever to know if there are any deities or not.

Other agnostics, though, say only that they themselves currently do not know if there are any deities.
