Quote – Life Of Pi by Yann Martel

March 26, 2010

I can imagine an atheist’s last words “White, white! L-L-Love! My god!” — and the deathbed leap of faith. Whereas the agnostic, if he stays true to his reasonable self, if he stays beholden to dry, yeastless factuality, might try to explain the warm light bathing him by saying, “Possibly a f-f-failing of the oxygen in the b-b-brain,” and, to the very end,  lack of imagination and miss the better story.

– Yann Martel

I can’t decide whether I agree or not, but it humored me and made me think. Ahh, to be agnostic.
