nekom: arentol: anything there is proof of is, by definition, natural.

That's kind of the point I was making, summed up nicely.  Bring someone from 500 years ago here and show them an ipad:  "What manner of sorcery is this!?!?".  It was Clarke (I think) who said any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

The difference being that given enough time, you can explain the technology to someone who at first thinks it's magical. People who believe in the supernatural think they're explaining something when they say, "It's magic!" but they're not. If you want to believe in imaginary things, you need to come up with an explanation for HOW these things can violate physical laws. I can't see any point to claiming belief in something you can't even properly describe. If gods are beings that just have access to superior technology, then that technology can be explained.

Barry Lyndon's Annuity Cheque: santadog: With one link to a site that explained exactly how David Copperfield made the Statue of Liberty disappear, I dashed all his hopes of real magic in the world.

Was it a rotating platform or something? That's what I always assumed when I saw that back in the day.

My favorite "Too soon?" joke:

"I can make the Statue of Liberty disappear!"
D. Copperfield, 1983

"I can top that."
O. b. Laden, 2001

Closed: My son died in March of this year. It is unbearable and good for this father for finding something to get him through another day. I can tell the "grieving process" discussed upthread is by someone that has never lost a child. There are no processes, especially around the holidays for a parent that will be going through their first Thanksgiving and Christmas without their child.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. I experienced the same thing with my first daughter 14 years ago. You never forget but simply learn to smile again.
