I understand that completely but you have to remember that many agnostic and atheist come from religious background and one of the charges leveled at us by the religious is that we lack in moral values.

We have to show that religion was a first attempt at morality but later secular philosophy can do it much better. Many in the developed world are agnostic, atheist and freethinkers and our numbers are growing based on the census taken every decade.

Secular Humanism is the future. But we do need to show that we do have a moral center as well.
5 years ago I was an Evangelical Christian minister. I get the whole idea, but I don't need a prayer. I don't think agnostics need prayers. What good does it serve?
