Here we have a clip of the Faquir as a geezer accompanied by a long string of statements the man made. In these statements he makes clear that though he is a man of his religion, he sides more in the spectrum of the agnostic. He is of the fence sitter; a human picks no side because they fear the ability to make a true stand.
It is true that a man cannot know everything but it is up to that man to attempt that feat, to know as much as possible. Choosing a middle ground leads only to stagnation and an abandon of progress in favor of the status quo.
