Thief. Stealing time from his employer. Documented for all to see.

You must be quite a productive member of society to be able to spread your stupidity on at least two Topix threads while claiming to be compensated by someone who certainly did not have 24-7 Topix posting as part of their advertised job description.

You're just an all-around low life. Gun crazy. Absentee parent. Functionally illiterate. Stealing from your employer. You disgust me, low life. And you live in the armpit of California. What a maroon.

More or less.
Your definition of agnostic is a bit too restrictive in one way, and too expansive in another. It really only means uncertainty about the existence of a god or gods. It isn't necessary to affirm that the question is fundamentally unanswerable.
And it doesn't address ultimate causes, just gods. There are other hypotheses apart from gods tentatively offered as solutions to the origins problems. We have to be agnostic about those as well at this time, but not necessarily forever. The question may well be solvable.
But however one defines agnostic, an agnostic still has the choice to believe in a god or not. That is why there are agnostic theists, and agnostic atheists.
Incidentally, whether you agree or not, you're agnostic by another definition of the word that I also use. I know that you don't know whether a god exists or not, whatever you claim. And that makes you agnostic about gods, like every other human being, whatever they claim.
You have no special senses, nor mental powers that I lack, nor access to any special knowledge not available to me. I know the answer to the god question is unknown to you just like it is to me.
I understand you're point.

But I still don't see how someone could "still has the choice to believe in a god or not" but be atheist and claim to not believe in the existance of any gods...

I'm not agnostic by any means. I am (by your standards) a gnostic theist. I know God exists.

Myth 5#

Foreign countries are two to six times more effective in solving crimes and punishing criminals than the U.S. In London, about 20% of reported robberies end in conviction; in New York City, less than 5% result in conviction, and in those cases imprisonment is frequently not imposed. Nonetheless, England annually has twice as many homicides with firearms as it did before adopting its tough laws. Despite tight licensing procedures, the handgun-related robbery rate in Britain rose about 200% duri ng the past dozen years, five times as fast as in the U.S.

Part of Japan's low crime rate is explained by the efficiency of its criminal justice system, fewer protections of the right to privacy, and fewer rights for criminal suspects than exist in the United States. Japanese police routinely search citizens at will and twice a year pay "home visits" to citizens' residences. Suspect confession rate is 95% and trial conviction rate is over 99.9%. The Tokyo Bar Association has said that the Japanese police routinely "...engage in torture or illegal treatment. Even in cases where suspects claimed to have been tortured and their bodies bore the physical traces to back their claims, courts have still accepted their confessions." Neither the powers and secrecy of the police nor the docility of defense counsel would be acceptable to most Americans. In addition, the Japanese police understate the amount of crime, particularly covering up the problem of organized crime, in order to appear more efficient an d worthy of the respect the citizens have for the police.

You're still wrong.

A gun is a tool that can be used to kill, but so can a hammer.

A hammer's purpose is to hit objects much harder than a human hand could.

A gun's purpose is to shoot a projectile at a higher velocity than a human could.

Both are tools, both can be used to kill but neither are purposed to kill.

Get over your childish fear & you'll understand.

Nope, that was way back in 1994. TODAY those same stats do not hold up redneck.

In the analysis, 88.5 percent of murder-suicide incidents involved a firearm. For all murder-suicides:

* 29.1 percent involved a handgun,

* 2.6 percent involved a rifle,

* 5.7 percent involved a shotgun,

* 49.8 percent involved a firearm which was not identified
more specifically than “a gun,”

MYTH 6: "Most murders are argument-related `crimes of passion' against a relative, neighbor, friend or acquaintance. "
The vast majority of murders are committed by persons with long established patterns of violent criminal behavior. Acc ording to analyses by the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency, the FBI, and the Chicago, New York City, and other police departments, about 70% of suspected murderers have criminal careers of long standing--as do nearly half their victims. FBI data show that roughly 47% of murderers are known to their victims.

The waiting period, or "cooling-off" period, as some in the "gun control" community call it, is the most often cited solution to "crimes of passion." However, state crime records show that in 1992, states with waiting periods and other laws delaying or denying gun purchases had an overall violent crime rate more than 47% higher and a homicide rate 19% higher than other states. In the five states that have some jurisdictions with waiting periods (Georgia, Kansas, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia), the non-waiting period portions of all five states have far lower violent crime and homicide rates.

Recent studies by the Justice Department suggest that persons who live violent lives e xhibit those violent tendencies "both within their home and among their family and friends and outside their home among strangers in society." A National Institute of Justice study reveals that the victims of family violence often suffer repeated problems from the same person for months or even years, and if not successfully resolved, such incidents can eventually result in serious injury or death. A study conducted by the Police Foundation showed that 90% of all homicides, by whatever means committed, in volving family members, had been preceded by some other violent incident serious enough that the police were summoned, with five or more such calls in half the cases.

Circumstances which might suggest "crimes of passion" or "spontaneous" arguments, such as a lover's triangle, arguments over money or property, and alcohol-related brawls, comprise 29% of criminal homicides, according to FBI data.

Professor James Wright of the University of Massachusetts describes the typical incident of family violence as "that mythical crime of passion" and rejects the notion that it is an isolated incident by otherwise normally placid and loving individuals. His research shows that it is in fact "the culminating event in a long history of interpersonal viole nce between the parties."

Wright also speaks to the protective use of handguns. "Firearms equalize the means of physical terror between men and women. In denying the wife of an abusive man the right to have a firearm, we may only be guaranteeing he r husband the right to beat her at his pleasure," says Wright. 11

Try it with your finger first, low-life thief. Then replace your finger with a gun. Your silly bumper sticker rhetoric is too simplistic. No one is blaming guns, moron. The gun increases the efficacy over the finger. The gun is invented to kill. If you were to kill someone with a hammer, law enforcement would implicate the hammer in the crime. It is more efficient than a foam brick. If guns had no efficacy, you would have no desire to own them. Life is not a bumper sticker. Despite the best efforts of your death cult, many think life is precious. Guns are our most efficient way to snuff out life. A gun in your hand, you low-life thief who can't comprehend how guns kill, is a dangerous weapon. You disgust me.
