So, should you be agnostic?

In the end, a person who claims to be agnostic about Christianity, but uses Julian Huxley's own criteria for determining whether one should be agnostic, will have to seriously reconsider their position.

With the hard agnostic viewpoint being ruled out as self-defeating, and the soft agnostic viewpoint being challenged by the compelling evidence of the New Testament, the more reasonable conclusion for the agnostic to reach once everything has been examined seems to be that Christianity is true.
