Agnosticism vs Mysticism

"Where Agnostics Stand on Mysticism"

How mystics differ from agnostics.

A mystic is someone who believes there is a dimension to our existence beyond the realm of human understanding. Although most religious groups would fall into this category, it may also include some which are more secular by nature. As with all matters of the supernatural, agnostics tend to question the rationality of such beliefs. This is because the laws of natural science and empirical realities are just not compatible with that which is speculative or unprovable. This category deals with the concepts of mysticism as viewed from an agnostic perspective.
