Even you have been known to use logic once or twice.

I do better with humor.

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. –RC Sproul

You don't get to redefine reality.

If you don't hear his trumpeting, it's because he isn't there. He who has an ear can't hear what isn't there.

He who hears what isn't there is often classified as mentally ill.

That isn't true. Scientists often believe in loyalty, courtesy, thrift, courage, cleanliness, etc.

What they don't believe is things that are not evidenced - and especially things that the evidence shows are false.

Belief SHOULD always take a back seat to evidence. That's the only real point here.

How can you expect an invisible elephant to show visible evidence?


You could say the same thing about Invisible Bigfoot or Invisible Zeus or Invisible Long John Silver. It's nonsense.
