Mottoes: "The power which the universe manifests to us is utterly inscrutable"--Herbert Spencer; "Agnosticism is of the essence of science, whether ancient or modern. It simply means that a man shall not say he knows or believes that which he has no scientific grounds for professing to know or believe... Agnosticism says that we know nothing of what may be beyond phenomena"--Professor Huxley; "I think that generally (and more and more as I grow older), but not always, an Agnostic would be the more correct description of my state of mind"--Charles Darwin. "[F]irst issue contained a remarkable symposium led by T. H. Huxley (who had coined the term agnostic) and including Francis Newman and Ernst Haeckel" (Altholz, p.122).
