Right, well obviously this can be flipped around to look at it from the other direction. Perhaps I should use as an example that in 1970 we didn't have the ability to walk down the street talking to a friend across town, but we were able to send humans onto the moon. We were restricted on the former, but clearly had very advanced technology at the time as shown by the latter. Would a third party not potentially find this absurd?


"The aim of argument, or of discussion, should not be victory, but progress."

"It is better to debate a question without settling it than to settle a question without debating it."
Joseph Joubert

"...He seeks to know himself and his fellow man rather than to know a god. An Atheist believes that a hospital should be built instead of a church. An Atheist believes that a deed must be done instead of a prayer said. An Atheist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death..." -Madalyn Murray
