Of course, the world is the way it is. My point is that IF God really existed, If the Savior really had come to the Earth, IF prophets really were inspired of God, If miracles really happened, etc. then the world would be a much different place than it is.

You are right, I am speculating about a world different than it is, but trying to do so as intelligently as possible.

My goal is not to get people angry, but to get them to think rationally.

A child might get mad when his more knowledgeable classmates tease him for still believing in Santa Claus, but that doesn't mean we should approve of the child believing in Santa even when he is older.
