I would dare to say that I have read more of the Bible than most Christians. So even though I don't believe, I can carry on an intelligent conversation about what the Bible says and what I think it means.
Pushing her to what? Does she think you'll try to convert her back to agnosticism? Do you notice when you talk about the stuff you're doing it with a twinge of superiority?
I'm only saying that because I do it too, especially when talking to my wife. We'll talk about something and I'll try to prove my point instead of just listening to what she has to say.
