What Is An Agnostic?

What Is An Agnostic?:
" A man's anti-social wishes may be restrained by a wish to please God, but they may also be restrained by a wish to please his friends, or to win the respect of his community, or to be able to contemplate himself without disgust. But if he has no such wishes, the mere abstract concepts of morality will not keep him straight. "

and ironically I say, "GOD BLESS BERTRAND RUSSELL!"
and yeah, I know he had his problems, but what a nice, concise representation of the basis of morals in an agnostic framework.
I'd say more but I'm at work, and unfortunately have to get back to it...
