I respect your knowledge and your dedication to math and logic but you have totally missed the essence of the argument going on. Everything you say is couched in terms which imply that you possess a mental model of reality which you believe to be true reality.

You seem to be unable to comprehend the idea that something beyond your conscious control created that mental model. And, as you do not know how that model was created, there is no way for you to be confident there is not a fundamental error in the creation of the model itself.

Most religionists credit the image to God and presume that requires it to be error free. If you were intellectually honest, you would be willing to subject your mental image of reality to intellectual analysis. You have made it quite clear that you believe that image to be absolute truth and you have no interest in examining it.

This is a sad fact as I believe you possess the intellectual abilities to analize the situation if you would try.

Have fun -- Dick
