... Agnosticism, the acknowledgment that we do not and cannot really know what's out there or what comes next, isn't terribly comforting, and makes both the religious zealot and the pugnacious atheist angry, but is the only logical position for anyone who agrees with Clint Eastwood that a man's got to know his limitations. To posit a God who having created this vast universe is endlessly concerned with this one pesky species on this one little planet is more than a little presumptuous. To insist that no God exists anywhere in that universe is preposterously so. To contemplate Alexander, Napoleon, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Obama is more than enough reason to doubt God's existence or benign intent. Hence: agnosticism.
