Apathetic Agnostics try to live up to our credo,
"We don't know and we don't care".
This refers to belief in the existence of a personal
deity (a person or persons in the psychological sense,
a god or gods created in the image of humans). While
many of us would go beyond this to denying the
possibility of a god who is the omnipotent creator
of the universe who also allows the suffering in this
world, or an infinite divinity who is petty and jealous
and will only save those who subscribe to one of many
belief systems, condemning all others to eternal
punishment, we are not quite ready to deny the
possibility of any spiritual or psychic being greater
Apathetic Agnosticism comes from the Greek, 'a pathos'
(without concern or feeling) and 'a gnosis' (without
knowledge). Of course there are millions of apathetic
agnostics in the world, but the very nature of our
beliefs causes most of us not to feel impelled to take
a stand on the issue or join a group. Some of us who
find ourselves bombarded with Theistic entreaties or
evangelism feel a need to have a position to fall back
on and a support group of kindred spirits. Such is
our Church, a place for renewal and support for
Agnostics, Pantheists, Unitarians, Universalists,
Humanists, Ethical Culturalists, Nontheists, Atheists,
and other Freethinkers. Bicol is the southeastern
region of Luzon, the main island of the Philippines.
Our headquarters is located in Legazpi City, the
capital of Albay Province and the whole Bicol Region.
Please contact me if you want to join our group or if you want more information.

THE EXISTENCE OF GOD (from a Unitarian sermon) Ultimately nothing can prove or disprove
the existence of God. Believing in God remains what it has always been: an act of
faith. Whatever God is, whatever is the source of morality and existential being is
beyond the logical mind, it remains uncircumscribable. But that’s okay - there’s
plenty to occupy us in the here and now. So we might have lost track but the
train arrives at the station somehow regardless. Don’t worry so much about whether
there is a God or not. Whatever God is - if at all - it is beyond our comprehension.
Do what is right, do what is just and do what is loving and you’ll be blest. If it
can help you become more loving and just then, by all means believe in God. If it
hinders you in becoming loving, then just drop it. Whether there is or isn’t a God
doesn’t matter an iota compared to how well you live your life and the goodness you
can share. So be it.
DO NOT BELIEVE BIBLE QUR’AN OR POPE.
THINK FOR YOURSELF!
