RE: I think Dawkins has it wrong on agnosticism.
Arguing with a devout Christian today and I asked her the question, Do you believe that the world is inhabited by millions of invisible unicorns.
She said "no"
I asked her to prove it is not so.
She said, "Well, I can't"
I asked would she do anything different based on the fact that I believe that there are millions of them, but she just couldn't see them.
She said, "no"
I asked her to have faith that this is true.
She said, "that's crazy"
I asked her how she could believe in a god that was supported by the same amount of evidence?
She said, "because their is a God"
...and there you have it.

The old gods are dead, let's invent some new ones before something really bad happens.

Logic, science, and rationality, as generally accepted, lack potency without a sense of awe as to what might further transcend what we are ever finding.

So what's the answer? Can information be completely destroyed or not? Ya got me salivating for the answer Cool

You have to watch that video he posted. I know it's an hour long, but it will be the best hour you've spent in quite a while. I promise.

Thanks!
