← No blood on the carpet. How disappointing. [Also in Polish]

The Daily Mail, as you might expect, picked up the same angle: “Career atheist Richard Dawkins admits he is in fact agnostic.”

I think most people would realise that's agnostic in the 6.9 sense and not in the dithery 50/50 sense. An agnostic ( at least an 'atheist agnostic' ) isn't someone who cannot make up his mind......he is simply someone who thinks that 'know' is a more important and relevant qualifier than 'believe'. The universe is utterly indifferent to anyone's beliefs about it......that's the sense in which I feel an expression of belief ( or otherwise ) is somehow irrelevant.
