Interesting thought
Hiya all, I've been a lurker here for quite some time and figured this a good time as any to say 'ello and chirp in with my two cents on this discussion.

I read the first page and saw that the topic kind of degraded into an argument on theory itself as opposed to discussion of the topic at hand and sort of skimmed over the next two, hope I didn't miss anything.

Honestly though, even though finding evidence for proof of the topic creator's theory would be difficult at best, it made me think long enough to want to reply. Think about it, when was the last time you saw a bunch of antelopes in worship around an object or apes thanking the skies for the bounty they are eating? Animals don't shuffle off to the "enchanted grove" every sunday, nor do they care what they eat and on what days they eat it.

Imagination is a uniquely human trait (I think, has there actually been any research on this?) and you cannot argue that belief in supernatural entities can exist without imagination, without imagination we would not have been able to create an all-powerful, mystical being that no one has ever seen.

Therefore, if we have no physical proof of any supernatural being's existence in reality, then they truly only exist in our imaginations.

I know, overall it is a silly theory, and I certainly can't back it up with any proof, other then the lack of proof.

Meh, I just thought it was interesting and wanted to say hi to everyone... I fear some of the discussions will escalate well beyond my ability to respond intelligently, but I like the forum and will try my best . =)

Sorry, just realized I shouldn't be posting in here, my bad guys... I'll say hi in another thread
