Have you ever noticed how similar the words agnostic and antagonistic are?

Just a thought from me as I write an article about spirituality and somehow type antagonistic instead of the word agnostic. A Freudian Slip perhaps?

Agnostic comes from Not know, in Greek, of course.

Antagonistic comes from Latin? I'll look it up and let you know. NO! It's from Greek, to struggle against.

Also hysterical and historical. One is Greek and the other Latin. They sound alike but have taken very different voyages into the English language.
