Matko Hume was not an atheist, but a deist. This book's message is a message of agnosticism.


Hollis Sigh....


message 3: by Chris (new) - added it

Chris Matko, he was an agnostic regarding if one could 'know' god existed, but an atheist in that he had no belief in any of the gods of yore; or simply put, Yahweh. He did not believe in prayer answering, after-life, or an anthropomorphic deity. How much closer to atheism must one be?


Matko Chris wrote: "Matko, he was an agnostic regarding if one could 'know' god existed, but an atheist in that he had no belief in any of the gods of yore

He wasn't an atheist because he didn't deny the existence of God. Such assertion wouldn't be consistent with his mitigated skepticism.
