A number of noted individuals have been agnostics. In presenting this list, we do not mean to imply that the fact that these people are agnostics makes agnosticism any more intellectually "satisfying" -- that would be a clearly bogus argumentum ad populum and argumentum ad vericundiam.
A partial list of persons believed to be agnostics:
- Charles Darwin
- Robert Heinlein (refused on various occasions to commit to a firm belief in any theological or metaphysical propositions)
- Thomas Henry Huxley - coiner of the term 'agnosticism'
- Bertrand Russell
