“As a philosopher, if I were speaking to a purely philosophic audience I should say that I ought to describe myself as an Agnostic, because I do not think that there is a conclusive argument by which one can prove that there is not a God.
On the other hand, if I am to convey the right impression to the ordinary man in the street I think I ought to say that I am an Atheist, because when I say that I cannot prove that there is not a God, I ought to add equally that I cannot prove that there are not the Homeric gods.”
Update: I should add that this blog remains open to the pursuit of truth through Natural Law and Right, and is generally skeptical of many forms of collectivist political philosophy that have sprung up since the Enlightenment. How do you ever prove such a thing?
