The agnostics’ conundrum.
The learned scientists of the agnostic school — in plain English, the school of ignorance — know, by reason of their own ignorance, that while all other instincts are provided for, this one, as strong as any, has and can have no provision made for it. And the One whom they have decreed to be the Unknowable, by that very decree they declare they know so well as to know that He cannot (or will not) reveal Himself to man! For if He be the Unknown, they cannot even pronounce Him the Unknowable and if He is not the Unknown, then the Unknowable He cannot be. – F. W. Grant
