Agnosticism manifests itself best as an attitude. It is a way of life driven by the desire for ultimate things. It is a love in the way that philosophy was a love of wisdom for Socrates. It is a ‘passionate commitment’ to a certain form of life, in Wittgenstein’s phrase. What marks it out is a confession of ignorance – a confession both in the sense of an admittance and in the sense of a framework.
Dr Mark Vernon, After Atheism, p 137
I like this. Vernon is an agnostic christian, rather than at the atheistic end of the scale.
