I've expanded this a bit. It is in fact an interesting subject - but what does it have to do with athiesm?R Fitzroy 21:07, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

I guess it shows the impossibilities people will believe in. Also, it talks about science. blah 21:19, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
Before Dalton developed the atomic theory alchemy made sense. Isaac Newton tried it. Proxima Centauri 21:33, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
All that you say is true. But I'm still not sure what it has got to do with athiesm. Many people believe that you can get a cold by being cold. In fact you get a cold because you come in contact with a virus and/or your immune system is a bit off. It's an impossible thing that many people believe in and it's about science. But it's not about athiesm.
People believe in many weird things and (ultimately) almost everything comes back to science. I'm not saying that we couldn't find an atheist angle for this - it's just that I can't quite see it at the moment.
As an aside - do you think you could all indent your comments with colons as I have done for you above? Thanks.R Fitzroy 21:40, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
After thinking about it, this is a good opportunity to make a point about knowledge which I will add. The alchemists were doing the best they could with the information they had.R Fitzroy 11:19, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
Done. Any thoughts?R Fitzroy 11:37, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
