Hard agnosticism

temeres asked me what my religious beliefs were. I believe it is impossible for the human mind to frame an accurate and complete notion about the nature of existence - our brains don't have the capacity. There's no way around that. Every religious idea is wrong, and its converse is wrong: 'there is a god' and 'there is no god' are both equally wrong. I'd call this hard, or radical, agnosticism ('It is impossible to know' as opposed to soft agnosticism, which is just 'I don't know'). That is the impossibility of knowing is inherent in the nature of the universe, and the nature of the human mind.
