As a non practicing agnostic I find this question piques my interest. My answer, usually involves deciding what I want to be and then becoming that person. What is prevalent in my view is that it does not require some semblance of a deity, like an old man with a shaggy beard on a hilltop or a crucifix, to contribute or interfere in my vision, the choices are entirely my own. But what is comforting to me, and others I sincerely hope, is the belief that at all times we are only a millisecond away from answering the question. It requires no special gift other than life itself and the wondrous ability we have to improve the quality of it.
