as an agnostic I wonder why you two are debating what I do or do not believe in.
As an agnostic, what do you believe in?

yea I don't trust that difintion, I like mine more ^_^
Whatever floats your boat :)

But I did Google your definition and found it came from Oxford Dictionary which defines atheism as "disbelief or lack of belief in the existence of God or gods". Assuming that is the source you trust, wouldn't you say that the Oxford definition encompasses what I previously referred to as either gnostic (knowing) or agnostic (not knowing) atheism? How then is it possible to be an agnostic without explicitly claiming either atheism or theism? Also, going by the Oxford definition of agnostic, after ruling out faith and disbelief as per the definition, the only stance left for one to take is a lack of belief in a god or gods. That's agnostic atheism.

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/agnostic
" a person who holds the view that any ultimate reality (as God) is unknown and probably unknowable; broadly :  one who is not committed to believing in either the existence or the nonexistence of God or a god"

I think this definition is more accurate. Be sure to read it carefully, though. Agnostic is commonly used just in regards to either atheism or theism, hence the second part of the definition.

where are the agnostics?
Agnostics are either theists or atheists. Agnosticism on its own says nothing about the belief nor the disbelief in a god/gods; it's simply the state of not knowing.
ex: an agnostic theist is a theist who does not claim to know with absolute certainty whether or not a deity exists, while an agnostic atheist is an atheist who does not claim to know with absolute certainty whether or not a deity exists.

I find that most atheists when questioned precisely over the definition of agnosticism will classify themselves as agnostic atheists.

I don't know.. I don't really watch anything other than what I intend on watching and am actually interested in. I guess I'm filtering out a lot of trash based on the responses here, though.

Well we can look back in time to see the beginning of th universe. So there must be a center. 
Not quite! The reason you're able to look back in time is due to the immense amount of time it takes light to travel through large amounts of space. The objects that you're looking at billions of years into the past likely don't even exist anymore. Same goes for a supposed center if you were able to look back far enough.

Every point in space was initially crammed into a singularity before the big bang and expanded outward after it.
Think of blowing up a balloon with space being the surface of said balloon; either every single point in space is the center, or there is no center. Doesn't really make a difference either way, so take your pick. :)

Well as of recently I can't really watch that many animes because I get bored of fan service and you always know that there will be a happy ending thats why I am trying to find one which will make me think... "I didn't see that coming" so a friend recommended Beserk so thats a start... any one else want to recomnend one?
I'd recommend watching Welcome to the NHK if you enjoy an anime that doesn't go the whole stereotypical predictable happy ending route. It's about Satou, a college dropout who has developed severe agoraphobia and social anxiety. He has had hardly any interaction with anyone for over a year until a young woman tries to help him out of his reclusive life style.
The plot has so many ups, downs, and twists - one of the most original stories I've seen thus far. It's very emotional all the way through and the characters are extremely well developed. A good anime will have you laugh. It'll have you cry. Though, no book, movie, or anime has ever had me doing both at the same time before watching Welcome to the NHK.

Gaming / Re: Kerbal Space Program

I actually just bought the game about a week ago.

So far my best attempt at getting to the Mun after several dead/stranded Kerbals ended in my crew endlessly orbiting the sun :P. Quite a high learning curve obviously, but I've found that Scott Manley's tutorials and his other KSP related YouTube videos are incredibly helpful when starting out: http://www.youtube.com/user/szyzyg
