Agnosticism

Welcome to The Agnostic Forum (TAF).

My introduction
Hello, and thanks for visiting my site. Online I go by Aaron or AgnosticBoy so feel free to refer to me by either name.

I am a passionate agnostic that loves to discuss religion, politics, skepticism, and many other topics. I decided to start my own forum after years of participating on other discussion sites. Most of the people that know me would probably describe me as an open-minded skeptic.

On a more personal note, I'm currently in school majoring in psychology. Eventhough I refer to myself as AgnosticBoy but I can assure you that I am over 18 years of age so you can trust me driving this site. That is it for now.

About the Site
I chose to name my site The Agnostic Forum because I wanted to be a place for discussion and debate and to have that take place under some agnostic themes, such as non-partisanship, freethinking, and open-mindedness. These principles are all part of what Thomas Huxley advocated for when he came up with agnosticism.

The goal in creating a forum environment based on these principles is to help ensure that discussions are not bogged down by political/ideological spin, partisanship (just wanting to take sides or push a side or viewpoint without logic and evidence), and any other distractions to truth. This is a clear alternative to sites that are dominated by Christians, atheists, skeptics, political advocates, and others who tend to be very partisan, dogmatic, and not wanting for others to stray from their orthodoxy.

Agnosticism

Here are some helpful answers to questions that some might have when looking to join:

1. Do I have to be an agnostic to join?
No. I allow everyone of any belief and background to join and to share their views. Also, your views don't have to be agnostic, moderate, or involve some uncertainty. If you are certain (or even uncertain) of something, then you can discuss it or debate it with others. The "agnostic" part in the forum title is mainly about the theme. Our rules and guidelines embody the agnostic theme by helping to ensure that discussions are centered on logic and evidence and not popularity, taking sides, political spin, etc.

2. Will I find the answers I'm looking for on this forum?
Perhaps some might join our forum looking for answers that might help them explain or express their evolution from traditional religion. I will say that this forum is not about advocating for anyone to be religious or non-religious. The answers and perspectives on the forum will vary since I allow members of all stripes to join.

However, I do have a section just for agnostics and there you'll find the agnostic perspective on a lot of different topics. Even in that section you shouldn't expect for everyone to have similar views, but I hope that people will at least notice some of the shared ways that agnostics search for answers. For many agnostics, the journey, and how they go about it, may be more or just as important as getting the answers.
