Mario,

I'm not referring to epistemological statements but ontological statements. If ontological statements of fact are removed then by default you are left with an undefined ontological reality. If it were nothing then we can define it: nothing (or zero if you prefer a numeric identification). Undefined terms are used in mathematics for terms that have no definition. In terms of an ontological reality, having no laws, no definition, etc is an undefined existence.

>>>The only place people put irrationality and God is in the unknown. I suppose it's like looking for your car keys in every place you can think of to look in, until you arrive at your couch and say "Well, it MUST be under the cushions, I didn't find them anywhere else" when in fact you accidentally dropped your keys down a storm drain. It's irrationality by default.
