Agnosticism: The position that neither affirms belief in God (theism) nor denies the existence of God (atheism) but instead suspends judgment. It is helpful to distinguish the "modest agnostic," who merely claims to be unable to decide the question of God's reality, from the "aggressive agnostic," who claims that no one can decide the question and that suspension of judgment is the only reasonable stance.1
