Sunday Quote: Jaroslov Pelikan on Atheism & Agnosticism

“An agnostic position is one that leaves open the question whether there exists a god or gods, professing to find such a question unanswered or unanswerable. For the atheist, the question has been answered, and in the negative.”

– Jaroslav Pelikan
