Agnostic


In 1869 the British scientist, humanist and prominent champion of evolution, Thomas Huxley coined the word “agnosticism” from the Greek “agnostos” meaning “unknowable” to express his own religious attitude. He was alluding to the verse in Acts 17 v 23 that talks about the unknown God. This term is used to describe those who don’t believe in God but are open to the possibility he might exist, in other words the floating voters of faith.
