If you are going to cross-post to a gaggle of science groups
you are just going to have to expect that a bunch of flaming
agnostic types are going to take pot shots at your symbolic
constructs. Would you expect us to do less? The symbolic
constructs you are defending aren't in the world of matter
and energy and are immune to objective observation and rational
interpretation, and therefore, are not the subject of science.
Around here you are going to have to produce a hairy kid or blow.
