religion
posted by Charlotte .
Hi. I handed out a survey for a science class and I had to collect demographics. One of the demographic questions was asking about students' religion. Two students said they were agonists. What is an agonist? Is agonism really a religion? I was looking on Wikipedia and it said that it was a political theory.

I suspect the students mean agnostic. Agnostic, for most people means unsure, or uncertain.
The word agnostic has an interesting history, especially from the Greek root.
(Broken Link Removed) 
An agnostic doesn't know whether God exists.
An atheist knows that God doesn't exist. 
thanks

You're welcome.
