  • Nov 7, 2013 at 11:00AM

Editor, I am an atheist. I’m not the only atheist on Whidbey Island, though I am probably the noisiest, most assertive one.

With no empirical evidence for the existence or the non-existence of the entity known as God, from a purely logical point of view, agnosticism may make the most sense.

  • Nov 8, 2013 at 10:00AM
