Here is one of my favorite interactions with Gemli:

Moksha gemli • 22 days ago
Gemli - But people born today have no more innate knowledge of how the universe really formed than he did...
What if they were given hidden knowledge by an angel and read stuff in an ancient buried book?

Oh, well, that's different.

True. Gemli and Moksha should take their act on the road.

Of course the point of many of your posts about science is to emphasize the wonder, uncertainty and the mystery that surrounds certain scientific topics. A title such as "The World is not as Real as we Think" implies that science is conceding the possibility of mysterious influences. It's a small step from that to the mystery of gods, angels, demons and all the other entities that populate the world of the devout devotee. Did I hit that nail on the head?
Yes, you hit the nail on the head.
