What's an Agnostic?
The word Agnostic literally means one who rejects Gnosis, which is the claim that spiritual or mystical knowledge exists. It's a convenient word to encompass the variety of beliefs and non-beliefs held by our individual members. Recovering alcoholics who attend the Agnostic A.A. groups come together knowing that sobriety can be attained by anyone with the help of A.A. fellowship and principles, without relying on a Higher Power. Some of us are Agnostic, some Secular Humanists, some Atheists - (and some of us hate labels!) The only thing that binds us is a desire to stop drinking.
