Books Recommended For each class May be found On AtheistScholar.org This lecture will attempt to engage the topic of agnosticism, its definition, its history, its relation to atheism, the various stances embraced by agnostics, and end with an extended quote by one of its most famous proponents, Robert Ingersoll, called the “Great Agnostic.” Before I discuss the history of agnosticism, I am going to open with a broad definition of the term, as well as with the general meanings of atheism, deism, skepticism and theism. There are many definitions of each term and but I am setting very wide perimeters in order to keep the various categories clear, rather than engaging in a more lengthy, precise description of each one, which is beyond the scope of this lecture.
