I don't maintain that there is or is not a god. I don't definitely
believe in god.
I don't definitely disbelieve in god. Neither do I believe that it is
unknowable whether there is a
god or not. Just that I don't know, or know how to know. I could invoke
Kosko and say
that I both believe and disbelieve.
I *definitely* don't believe in forcing black/white divisions on
something that is as fuzzy as human belief. :-)
