You asked: "I take it to mean that you do not lean toward either belief at all. Is that a safe assumption?"
Actually, it means more than that.
Perhaps I can explain this best by defining my agnosticism.
I do not KNOW if there is a GOD -- or if there are no gods. -- and I do not see enough evidence of probative value upon which to make a reasonable guess (or estimate) in either direction.
Your use of the word "belief" in your question translates in my mind (correctly or incorrectly) into the word "guess" (or estimate, conjecture, supposition).
I truly think flipping a coin when asked "...if you had to choose..." makes as much sense as any of the other reasons I've heard.
Is this something we can discuss?
I wanted to start a thread here in Able2Know about this issue, but I still haven't figured out how to do it. I'm a clod when it comes to learning new computer techniques -- and even if you would not like to discuss the subject issue, I wish you could give me a brief survey of how to go about initiating new discussions here.

Thanking you in advance, since you've helped me in the past over at Abuzz. Frank)
