Re: Shedding light on non-existant light:
It's funny you'd say that to Percy, seeing as he is a deist.

I hunt for the truth
I am the one Orgasmatron, the outstretched grasping hand
My image is of agony, my servants rape the land
Obsequious and arrogant, clandestine and vain
Two thousand years of misery, of torture in my name
Hypocrisy made paramount, paranoia the law
My name is called religion, sadistic, sacred whore.
-Lyrics by Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead

Fishermen may net a mermaid tomorrow, for all we know, and bring her into port for verification. That blows out my theory.
Would it? Could that mermaid not possibly have a natural explanation, meaning your theory would still stand? Why would a mermaid have to be a supernatural creature necessarily?

Let's try this
RAZD, do you agree that there is any evidence for anything supernatural?
Don't whine about the fact that that isn't the topic of your thread, I would like a simple yes or no answer.

Hmmmm....
All of the supporters AND the originator are from the UK. Maybe there should be a theory of inductive reasoning that, if you are from the UK, you will support your countryman's theory out of a combination of cultural bias and national pride.
In keeping with the gist of this thread, if this was all the data you had available, you could call this a strong theory. To falsify this theory, one would have to produce a supporter who's not from the UK.
Here I would like to enter into evidence exhibit H: Huntard. He supports Bluegenes' theory, yet is not from the UK.
Now, if only the non-supporters of Bluegenes' theory could produce something to falsify it, say a god not sprung from human imagination.

But we have considered you an honourary UKite for some time now.
Oh no!! I have unfalsified the falsification example!!!
Well, I guess the theory could be amended to "from Europe" instead of "from the UK"
If we make you an honourary supernatural being does that count?
I guess not...
We could at least try. Perhaps I'll gain some fancy honourary powers.
In any case, I hope my little example made something clear to the detractors of the theory, but I'm not holding my breath.
