I see this atheism/agnosticism argument all the time and it really just seems to come down to semantics. An atheist is comfortable saying that they don't believe in something, whereas an agnostic (for some reason only in the case of a god argument) has to be super literal and state that anything (living teapots on Saturn) could exist. Face it, you don't believe that invisible pink unicorns exist. You don't believe that there are living teapots on Saturn.
However, if the submitter is looking to do advanced web applications, possibly for a large company, and get paid over $75K, I would suggest a CS degree. As the parent states, web development goes well beyond HTML and CSS. An understanding of CS concepts is very important for creating a large interactive web application.
Also, are you willing to bank that web development will stay as it is for your entire career? Having a background in a wide range of CS concepts can be very helpful as the sands shift in the future.

In other words, if you look only at the movies that Peter Jackson has done that are based on books, then it appears that he mainly does movies based on books.
