I don't believe that an agnostic necessarily has to believe that it is 'impossible' to know whether God exists, only that he himself does not know

Yes, well I deny the existence of any sort of God. Give me proof, and I'll consider changing my stance.

What is the focus of your life?
Do you have siblings?
How do you keep from despair when if feels like life is all useless movements we are going through?
How important is education to you?
Do you like camping?

Lots of questions to answer...

My focus is on learning at the moment, no siblings, I just don't despair. It's never been hard for me. Education is very important. I loathe camping.

Anything you can give me to prove that there is a God, and then you'd have to prove it was YOUR God and not Ra or Thor.

Do you know a good way to get coffee stains out of a white cotton/polyester blend uniform shirt on which you cannot use bleach?

That's a good focus at your point in life. (Do you have a life plan? I have five year plans. Ten year plans (like Mao's China) and eternal ones (unlike Mao).
If you don't despair, can you teach me that trick?
Education is very important to me too, but degrees only a on a need basis.
I am uncomfortable with camping too. (sigh) but I find poetry inspiring.

Peroxide and a bar of white soap

Well if I'm camping with friends, it's fun. However, school canoe trip, it was raining all 3 days and we never say the sun. Went canoeing for 45 minutes one day. We all wanted to die after the first day, second day we just tried to stay warm and dry, third day we were hugging the bus driver when he showed up.

To not despair? Eh, it's not hard for me because, as a child, I was bullied a lot. Learned to keep my emotions to myself, y'know? So I can just choose to feel certain emotions. It's a helpful tool.

Give me proof that your stance is well-reasoned and logical, and not an arbitrary bit of petulant, self-important adolescent bosh, and I will consider changing my stance that you don't know what you are talking about.
