Hi Kyle,

Thanks for your great comments:

Although my 'feeling' or intuition is that there are some deeper principles underlying our existence, I would nevertheless probably consider myself ultimately to be agnostic simply because I believe that it is not possible to know for sure which categorical definition of belief is the correct one.

I don't think too many of us pretend to 'know' ultimate reality or believe that we can 'know' it, so in that sense we are all (or most of us) agnostics. But, that's not what I think of agnosticism as being. I think of agnostic as someone who won't form a belief of any particular degree that they believe God exists or doesn't exist. It seems you have formed certain beliefs.
