In an interview with a German magazine Brad Pitt describes himself as 20% atheist and 80% agnostic. Here’s the clip from the mag:
BILD: Do you believe in God?
Brad Pitt (smiling): “No, no, no!”
BILD: Is your soul spiritual?
Brad Pitt: “No, no, no! I’m probably 20 per cent atheist and 80 per cent agnostic. I don’t think anyone really knows. You’ll either find out or not when you get there, until then there’s no point thinking about it.
I find it sad. But what I’m mostly interested in is can you be 20% atheist and 80% agnostic? Does the math work?
If an atheist is defined as being someone who denies the existence of God and an agnostic is someone who just isn’t sure, can you be both? Well, I’d say you can’t – at least at the same time, right?
You can’t say positively that there is no God but you’re not sure. Maybe he means that 20 percent of the time he’s sure there’s no God and 80 percent unsure.
I know Brad Pitt says there’s no point in thinking about it but hey, he’s not the boss of me. I’m 100 percent sure of that.
