Ignosticism is not a belief or a non-faith or a worldview. It is really a principal position when entering into a discussion or debate about ‘What is God?’ and ‘Does God exist?’
I’ve actually seen several slightly differentiating definitions of this, on different websites. With several christian websites having one variation of definition:
*That Ignosticism is the concept that all talks of God and Religion are ultimately meaningless because all talks of God are purely assumptive and assume too much because no one has comprehensive knowledge of God or know God.
Ignosticism as according to the Christian Apologetic website C.A.R.M.:
Ignosticism is the position that all religious systems profess too much knowledge about God. It would say that any talk of God is ultimately meaningless because to speak of God requires assumptions of God and his attributes, and that such assumptions cannot be validated. Ignosticism is similar to agnosticism and atheism since it is a denial of sufficient knowledge of God by which we are accurately able to relate information about him
However that differs variably from many of the academic and secular definitions of ignosticism:
*That Ignosticism is the position that every and all other theological position of God including agnosticism & atheism are ultimately meaningless until God is accurately defined & described.
To be more explanatory, ignosticism is actually the position that all religious systems and beliefs are considered equal under the guidance of relativism and theological noncognotism until their Religion and God are accurately defined. And Theological Non-Cognitivism is the cognitive stance that all religious language is purposely vague and cognitively meaningless. It also pleasantly includes that any talk or debate of God is vague and meaningless until “God” is defined.
1) The view that a coherent definition of God must be presented before the question of the existence of god can be meaningfully discussed
2) If the definition provided is unfalsifiable, the ignostic takes the theological noncognitivist position that the question of the existence of God is meaningless.
Furthermore in the ignostic position before we can have a meaningful conversation about god, we have to adequately define “God“. Ignosticism is the view that the question of whether or not God exists is inherently meaningless until ultimately defined. And if defined, is it falsifiable? It takes the firm stand in saying that; I refuse to take a position until ‘god’ is properly and positively defined. The reason for this ignosticism position, is because in some religious debates the topic and definition god is intentionally left vague because if you define the essence of this divine religious deity then it is possible to prove falsifiability or nonexistence. And when not empirically defined, this is were Ignosticism falls back into it original state; that since God cannot be defined then we cannot even discuss the issue when the descriptive definition of a celestial being by the believer is not given.
Now that we have defined Ignosticism, but not “God“, let’s have some fun and define God…Click Here to Define God and learn how others also defined God.
