Observing the real world is step #1, fantasizing about sky-fairies is step #2. What's going to give him trouble is step #3.

They've pretty much played out their string on those steps. That's why I think their superstitious hypothesis has failed--it had to be abandoned, and a new Step #3 invented.

Step #1
Primitive Superstitious Man: "I've said it before, and I'll say it again: something bigger than us that we can't see is doing all this crazy shit."

Step #2
Historical Superstitious Man: "We can't find the bigger unseen thing anywhere, but he left records to tell us what will happen with all this crazy shit."

Step #3
Modern Superstitious Man: "We have a new hypothesis: we hypothesize that you cannot disprove this crazy shit."
