Chuckle. Glad you clarified that. I assure you that I have seriously considered that question with an open mind and true self honesty, and while I went through a period of being agnostic, I am now definitely *not* agnostic.

I wanted to make sure I had the definition of agnostic right so I checked Merriam-Webster on the internet and found this definition:

: a person who holds the view that any ultimate reality (as God) is unknown and prob. unknowable; broadly : one who is not committed to believing in either the existence or the nonexistence of God or a god

I do not hold this view and so am not an agnostic. I believe in the Lord, my God, with all my heart, mind, and soul. And I see more than enough evidence in the workings of the universe to justify my belief.

However, I would never insist on my religion (which I would categorize as a nonspecific Judeo-Christianity) as the "only true religion". So where does that leave me in your conclusion? :)
