    If reason did not follow faith into the unknown, and I did not find the new reality that was shown to me there to be experientially true, a conversation like this would have given me pause. Faith and intellect walk side by side, and with faith, intellect reaches higher understanding than he could have reached alone. This is personal proof, and as such, cannot be measured, tested, or seen by any other person.

    There are many other factors that point to a creator, but this one is the most relevant to this video.

      How so? What benefit does this provide? Be specific.

      “This is personal proof, and as such, cannot be measured, tested, or seen by any other person. ”

      If it can’t be tested or measured in anyway, then you’re saying it isn’t demonstrable, in which case, why would you believe it? And more importantly, why should anyone else believe it?

      The very word “truth” is meaningless and utterly incomprehensible if what is being asserted cannot be demonstrated as such. What can be asserted without evidence can just as easily be dismissed without evidence. At least that’s what the invisible leprechauns tell me. I can’t prove to you that they exist but you just gotta take my word for it.

      “There are many other factors that point to a creator, but this one is the most relevant to this video.”

      Such as? And didn’t you just invoke blind faith two seconds ago? Is your tribal god falsifiable or not? Make up your mind.

      Sorry but believing in things for no good reason is not a virtue…and it never will be.
