The difference between the theist and the agnostic: The agnostic accepts the unknown simply as the unknown while the theist anthropomorphizes the unknown for a variety of reasons ranging from 1) a lack of independent thought, 2) a need for companionship, and 3) a fear of the unknown… Even false hope is comforting.

I do not believe a supreme being would design a universe that operates according to rules of logic… and then hide from logic.
I also do not believe a good supreme being would punish someone for reaching a logically valid conclusion given the available information.
A God that punishes its subjects for a logically valid conclusion… is an evil God that I want no part of!
