If you actually have the BB's at one point, then it is evidenced that the BB's are real. So your example fails.<quoted text>
At 3 AM when the it's dark,,,, do you still believe a sun exixsts....? You can't see it. If you throw 5000 BB's in your front yard,,,, and you find 4999,,,, does the 1 not exist? Someone made a comment about faith and the 9/11 attack,,, I won't compare that to what I believe. I'll simply say I serve a god that could have save each soul involved.
And if various people have these BB's and throw them, do you think they would argue about what the one missing BB was actually like?
