Welke positie over het bestaan van god(en) onderschrijft u?

Bekende atheïsten

Herman PhilipseProf. dr. mr. Herman Philipse, columnist, essayist, filosoof, universiteitshoogleraar aan de Universiteit Utrecht

Citaat

It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thoughts it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?

~ Richard Dawkins
