Isn't this the person who got upset because I accused the nincompoop
of not being a Christian?  And yet you accuse me of "inviting demons
into your life"?

Or are you making accusations about my wife and kids?

They are definitional, so YOU are the one revealing ignorance (not
idiocy).  Science foes not prove anything.  It applies reasoning to
evidence, reaches conclusions, and then attempts to test those
conclusions.  Scientists tend not to rely on faith, having been
trained professionally to have a more-than-healthy dose of skepticism.

But do you call the people quoted in this web site all "idiots" as
well?

Other than in the occasional computer game, not at all.

Why should I want to be satisfied?  Life would be boring. %^)
