Agnosticism

Agnostisisme adalah suatu pandangan filosofis bahwa suatu nilai kebenaran dari suatu klaim tertentu yang umumnya berkaitan dengan teologi, metafisika, keberadaan Tuhan, dewa, dan lainnya yang tidak dapat diketahui dengan akal pikiran manusia yang terbatas. Seorang agnostik mengatakan bahwa adalah tidak mungkin untuk dapat mengetahui secara definitif pengetahuan tentang “Yang-Mutlak”; atau , dapat dikatakan juga, bahwa walaupun perasaan secara subyektif dimungkinkan, namun secara obyektif pada dasarnya mereka tidak memiliki informasi yang dapat diverifikasi.

Dalam kedua hal ini maka agnostikisme mengandung unsur skeptisisme.
Agnostisisme berasal dari perkataan Yunani gnostein (tahu) dan a (tidak). Arti harfiahnya “seseorang yang tidak mengetahui”.
Agnostisisme tidak sinonim dengan ateisme.

Type of Agnoticism:

(1) Agnostic Atheism: Agnostic atheists are atheistic because they do not have belief in the existence of any deity, and agnostic because they do not claim to know that a deity does not exist.

(2) Agnostic Theism: The view of those who do not claim to know of the existence of any deity, but still believe in such an existence

(3) Apathetic or Pragmatic Agnosticism: The view that there is no proof of either the existence or nonexistence of any deity, but since any deity that may exist appears unconcerned for the universe or the welfare of its inhabitants, the question is largely academic. (I dont know and I dont care!)

(4) Ignosticism: The view that a coherent definition of a deity must be put forward before the question of the existence of a deity can be meaningfully discussed. If the chosen definition is not coherent, the ignostic holds the noncognitivist view that the existence of a deity is meaningless or empirically untestable.

(5) Strong Agnosticism (Permanent Agnosticism): The view that the question of the existence or nonexistence of a deity or deities, and the nature of ultimate reality is unknowable by reason of our natural inability to verify any experience with anything but another subjective experience. A strong agnostic would say, “I cannot know whether a deity exists or not, and neither can you.”

(6) Weak Agnosticism (Temporal Agnosticism): The view that the existence or nonexistence of any deities is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable; therefore, one will withhold judgment until/if any evidence is available. A weak agnostic would say, “I don’t know whether any deities exist or not, but maybe one day, when there is evidence, we can find something out.”

(7) Spiritual Agnosticism: The view that universal ethics and love can guide actions more effectively than questioning the existence of deities. A spiritual agnostic would say “It doesn’t matter what religion you call yourself a follower of, nor does it matter whether or not you believe in God. What matters is what you do, not what you believe.
