MP -- in your reply to Garry (one with which I agree, BTW), you finished
with the odd statement:

" And that's all I will ever be
able to say (unless I got paranormal powers of my own... ;-)"

Suppose (though experiment) that you did. And suppose you were
not able to demonstrate those powers scientifically. That is -- they
remain "private knowledge" and no claim made about them could be
demonstrated objectively.

It seems to me that you would then be in very much the same situation
as me (and other Christians) who have encountered God.

This is not meant to be argumentative; just illustrative of what we've
struggling to communicate to you and Will over the last few weeks.
