Sidelined, you story demonstrates the danger of this kind of thinking. However, in what way is it "evidence"?

What we probably have is enough absence of evidence here to begin to be evidence of absence. But the existance of demons, like other supernatural things might be hard to absolutely disprove.

However, the fact that you have manage to get your opponent to be careless enough to appear to support demonic possesion is an excellent tactic. This will, I guess, gain him credibiility in some circles. However, it will certainly destroy it in other, much wider circles.

I agree with you completely. My point was simply that the story, by itself, doesn't disprove demonic possesion. It does as point out that ignorance can be a fatal illness. (to the wrong person in this case).

I do happen to consider ABC, CBS and NBC a bit better than Fox. However, I think it is pretty silly to think that any TV source (including PBS) is the right way to find out real, in depth, accurate information about most things.

The bottom line here is that nobody can give me enough evidence for the fact that they dont exist as well as i cant convince anybody that they do

You are correct, of course. We can simple take our different views of the world and agree to disagree with no need for any conflict then.

I'm glad that you can enjoy your belief and I will leave you to it in the church of your choice. I don't intend to influence what is taught in your church. Your job is to refrain from attempting to influence what is taught in the science class. Then we are even.

Very Wise
Im pretty edgy on these "Codes", they don't seem to be reliable and frankly, I think that they are very bad. Christains are drifting farther away from the Bible itself, and focusing on codes that are based on chance.

Very wise, IM. This sort of stuff runs the risk of making some individuals more skeptical of the Bible.

After all if they suggest that this stuff somehow 'proves' devine intervention then, at least a few, individuals will, if the codes are shown to be bogus, suggest that the disproof of the codes in some way disproves God. Proving the codes false doesn't do that, of course. But that is the impression that will be left in some minds.

Any ill founded attempt to make God a part of the natural world. To supply concrete proof runs this risk.


Common sense isn't
