You expect real things to some how have something to do with imaginary events?

Thank you for making my point.

According to you guys:

It's imaginary because there's no evidence --- there's no evidence because it's imaginary.

Wrong, but even so, what do you have against circular logic? You don't complain about the God/Bible circle...

That's right --- only God can do it.

Just like when I say the Trinity cannot be explained scientifically because it is a violation of the Law of Non-contradiction.

Only God can do it.

Well, if you look for nothing, you're sure to find it.

And, unfortunately, prattle on about it incessantly.

Considering more people care about American Idol than the repair/upgrade of the Hubble Space Telescope your statement is 100% true. The literal fundamentalist movement and entertainment industry is going to create an America that would be years behind the rest of the world in scientific achievements.

I've been watching the Atlantis crew work on the NASA channel all day!

Me thinks someone is just a bit sore about a certain eye-in-the-sky that has been spotting things that contradict certain religious texts.

So what is the insight?
