Addendums to the tenets

I am a developmental biologist in full support of the tenets of apathetic agnosticism, with the following addendums: as a scientist, I cannot claim absolutely that a Supreme Being is unknowable. I can only claim that it seems astronomically improbable based on what I know of the Universe that an interfering Supreme Being exists and that it is near-infinitely probable that such a God would be unknowable anyway.

Also, while I am in fact apathetic to whether there is a Supreme Being or not, I do not take that to mean that I do not like to think about philosophical questions regarding any hypothetical god or to debate/think about the possibilities of our universe. I simply understand that such thoughts are (cosmologically speaking) ultimately meaningless, aside from my own mental exercise.
