Agnosticism

As of the re-writing of this article, the current definition of the word “agnosticism,” according to Dictionary.com, is “an intellectual doctrine or attitude affirming the uncertainty of all claims to ultimate knowledge.”* It is the claim that nothing (especially whether a supreme being or otherwise exists or not) can be known for certain. Previously I claimed to be an agnostic, but recently I have changed my mind because scientists are still working on solving the problem. How then can I prematurely declare that ultimate knowledge cannot be known if we're still in the process of figuring it out? I fully reject the notion of agnosticism and strongly assert that I personally don't know whether God or gods or supernatural things exist or not.
