Agnostics believe in the intelligent design a (creator) through evolution and non-evolution as many religious people does. They do not believe that God contacted humans in the persons of the prophets. Like atheists who do not believe in a creator they are smart and a lot of them are moral people. The are just fed up with religions or more accurately peoples of religions. These are my answers to agnostics:
1- Why a creator after he did all the complicated creation would not declare himself, take the credit or wants us to worship him. It is like Larry King will declare to us one day that his very successful program of 20 years in CNN was not his and all this time it was his uncle Harry.
2- What religion has to do with people of the religions, many of them are hypocrites. Many wars were for non-religious causes and religion always used for materialistic goals. Most of crusaders did not read the Quran. John Paul II did apologies to Muslims for that. Many Muslims fought each other and Christians did the same.
3- The inability of religious people from different religions to come together to a common denominator tell you well about the existence of Satan.
4- The suffering in the world does not speak against the presence of God but for a better life after this one.
5- Human spirituality is people experience over the years. Visions that come true is the experience of a lot of people. Most of us feel spiritual with praying to God and closer to him when we follow his path. I never give up on religions even if the odds to be true was 2% as I red more and learnt more my faith is close to 100% of Islam. I feel my faith weaker at certain times but I reclaim it quickly.
6- Agnostics can continue to be agnostics, but God deserve to have their attention and prove to themselves that religion is true or not. I do not look only to secure my eternity but more if there is a God he created us and gave us all of these pleasures we ought to pay him back In all my life I learned whenever one did something good to me I try to find the way to make him happy as a pay back.
7- Restrictions of religions are mostly mild particularly in Islam. There is no obligation for ultra conservatism in Islam, it is ones choice. Sins that we avoid in large to help us to coexist together without harming one another. If you are not thinking of religion because you want to sin you have a weak case against religion. It is better to sin than to make God feel that you do not care if he is there or not. To be righteous is the proof to God of your faith. The universe is his and he has the right to make the roles. It is like two parents have 3 teenagers they have to live by the roles of the house. If they have a party every day and making a lot of noises they may not have them live with the parents while continuing to break the roles. If they go out and continue their messy lives, still their parents will feel better if they keep in touch. God more than the parents forgive all the sins and wants to the sinner to keep in touch. God gets very happy when his children come back to him including sinners, atheists and agnostics.
