BR comments on the article "An Agnostic in Doubt" by Allan Dawson. "I am very much amused by the Editor's headline as I had always supposed that being in doubt was the definition of an agnostic. The argument that agnosticism offers us a less cheerful picture of the universe than is offered by those who think that their friends go to Heaven and their enemies go to Hell is totally irrelevant. The belief that one should accept whatever view pleases one's prejudices, even if there is no evidence in favour of such a view, leads, inevitably, to persecution, censorship and obscurantist dogmatism.... It is dogmatism that is the enemy, not this or that dogma."
