I find your website hilarious!!!

But on a serious note, can you recommend agnostic philosophers? I have drifted form Christianity but not able to jump into atheism. Would like to read more. Thank you. Josh

The Patriarch replies:

If you specifically want a philosopher, I would suggest Bertrand Russell. But I think Ingersoll (as recommended in Ask the Patriarch 79) is much more accessible to the average reader.

Others that have addressed the issue are Charles Darwin, Robert Ingersoll, Thomas Huxley (of course,) Carl Sagan, and Sherwin Wine. Earlier philosophers can be interpreted as being agnostic before the term was invented - consider Hume and Voltaire.
