Atheists rallied, I think. I was told, but didn't see it myself, so I can't confirm it, that about 20,000 atheists gathered in Washington on Saturday for a so-called "Reason Rally." Such apostles of unbelief as Richard Dawkins and the rock band Bad Religion may or may not have been there, depending on whom you believe.

And it may or may not have rained, you don't know, you weren't there. People may have carried signs and wore shoes, but that too is something you can't confirm, you weren't there.

There are reporters, who can verify a set of claimed facts by ... 1. watching video of said events 2. reading other reporters words as to what they witnessed.

Maybe next time your editor would be better served by using one of those reporters, to tell their take on the event. I'd bet that not a one would use the line, "I don't know, I wasn't there".

and b_t_w, your first paragraph, was in itself sufficient to let me know that the content of any subsequent paragraphs would hold no interest for me.

...and it is incredibly obvious that you are indeed not all there.

By his own logic, he ought not be a christian.

He believes in divine creation ... but he was not there.

He believes eve was tempted by a talking snake ... but he was not there.

He believes in the great flood ... but he was not there.

He believes jesus was conceived through a miracle ... but he was not there.

He believes jesus was crucified ... but he was not there.

He believes jesus was resurected ... but he was not there.

Since he believes one should doubt anything one has not personally observed, how can he possibly find the bible to be a convincing account of events that took place thousands of years before he was born?
