I would guess something along the lines of: "They should convert," though conversion could have multiple senses here, depending on where exactly the person was as far as ecclesiastical affiliation, what is going on in their life, etc.

Suspected duplicate account of phil2190 and
nintendo6941 - MK.
 Based on evidence presented to me, it's obvious that this is a duplicate account of "nintendo6941" and "phil2190."  Your "phil2190" account is still available, but we will ban any parallel accounts you create to circumvent your primary account.

Not to nitpick, but "confucious" (you mean "Confucius", I think?) and "decates" (do you mean "Descartes"?) were not Greek philosophers.

Only two of those on your list (Aristotle and Plato) were Greek philosophers. One of them was a Greek rhetorician (Demosthenes* - not Demostheones) and the rest weren't even Greek.

Agnostic is the natural philosophical worldview of man in terms of religion and science
