Nicholas Yanoshak replied to Anthony Jordan's discussion What is your view of Agnosticism ?
"Hi,  Ultimately, I don't want to argue why I take a certain standpoint.  I'm leaving room for the unknown, that it all.   I joined this site because I wanted to find a strong community of free thinkers, not argue over the…"

Nicholas Yanoshak replied to Anthony Jordan's discussion What is your view of Agnosticism ?
"I I see where you are coming from.  One cannot seek proof of god because none can be provided on such an idea, nor for mythological beings.  I define myself as agnostic since I don't take that step of saying, "this is the fact,…"

Nicholas Yanoshak replied to Anthony Jordan's discussion What is your view of Agnosticism ?
"There are most likely, none of those.  I can assert that there is most likely no god.  Some people define this as atheism, I refer to it as strong agnosticism.  I avoid absolutism.  The scientific method never asserts that…"

Nicholas Yanoshak replied to Anthony Jordan's discussion What is your view of Agnosticism ?
"I consider myself agnostic in a sense that in our finite understanding of the universe, one can not say, "there definitely is no god."  I am almost certain that there is no god, however, I cannot claim to know everything.  This…"

"Thank you for the encouragement Easton.  I have started to find more people in my area.  I pitched the idea to my co-worker and he if willing to help build this community.  We will be reaching out to others in the area, once we have a…"

Easton Le commented on Nicholas Yanoshak's blog post What I'd like to see
"Nicholas, I encourage you to research resources in your local community relating to what you are interested in. I've begun doing the same in Seattle since I've recently decided to become more active as an atheist. Wilkes-Barre looks like…"

"The overall goal is to be a part of a solid community where people of like-mindedness get together and work towards bettering each others lives.  A solid foundation for a person to help raise a family with good secular morals and ideals.…"

"(I am just beginning to learn about philosophical history so I apologize if anything I write is inaccurate or outright wrong.) Our morals may not come from a thousand years ago but before the rise of Christianity we were exploring morals and many…"

Glen Rosenberg commented on Nicholas Yanoshak's blog post What I'd like to see
"Theists are sometimes persuaded by atheists. Done it. Seen others do it. Silence is at odds with deconversion, acceptance and tolerance. Racists thrive in such an environment. Homophobes thrive. And the failure to oppose theism leaves the edifice of…"

Loren Miller commented on Nicholas Yanoshak's blog post What I'd like to see
"Theists don't want to be convinced.  No true believer ever does, and indeed, they CAN'T be convinced.  They've been scared beyond any consideration of any opinion other than their own.  They aren't worth my time,…"

James Yount commented on Nicholas Yanoshak's blog post What I'd like to see
"I don't feel I'll ever convince a determined theist that they are wrong.  However the debates do serve to give them another foundation for things if they ever start questioning things on their own.  One cannot ignore the fact…"

When it comes to atheist/agnostic groups, I believe a lot of them become wrapped up in a great debate with the theists.  But what is accomplished in these debates?  Very rarely is a theist convinced to see things from another perspective.  These people are already fixed in their beliefs, to a point where they want to get into debates with the other side. Little is accomplished with these debates, in my opinion. I am agnostic, and I feel there is no need to push my beliefs on someone or debate…See More
