He didn't believe in a designer. He was agnostic. He didn't believe in a God
The word "agnostic" was created by Thomas Henry Huxley.
According to Huxley, "agnostic" means that knowledge of the cause and origin of existence is not only an uncertainty, but an impossibility, whether youre considering that the origin may be God, science, or something else entirely.
If he didn't believe in God he would be an Atheist, not an agnostic.
Then you are not a Deist. Deists are not Agnostic about the existence of God, by definition Deists believe in a God
You are going to tell me that I'm not a Deist?
Shall I tell you that you are not a Christian?
Agnostic refers to knowledge, not faith.
Deists recognize that God's nature can't be comprehended by human knowledge.
"I cannot pretend to throw the least light on such abstruse problems. The mystery of the beginning of all things is insoluble by us; and I for one must be content to remain an Agnostic."
Thanks for proving my point...He was talking about knowledge, not faith.
"I am inclined to look at everything as resulting from designed laws, with the details, whether good or bad, left to the working out of what we may call chance."... Charles Darwin, the inventor of Intelligent Design.
