Answering Agnostics
Agnostics assert that we cannot know whether or not God truly exists. How can we answer them? That they almost never offer a theory of knowledge (epistemology), as they need to most, that shows how we cannot know intangible truths such as “God exists.”

Agnostics seem content to wait until they die to learn whether or not this is true, but would not this be too late to show a sincere interest in the God-question? Will they be disappointed, burning forever in hell if the Abrahamic religions are correct on this point?

This manuscript is a much shortened version of the 2016 book Making Meaning  (200 pages)
