  •  i'll put it this way (none)
    did the planet pluto exist before anyone could prove it existed??

    so there you go.

    not having proof that something exists is NOT sufficient proof that it does not exist.

    the only nutjob fundamentalist talking point that represents is nutjob fundamentalist scientific method.

    •  Pluto did not require faith (none)
      Pluto was demonstratable and falsifiable.  No one even thought about Pluto until it was found.

      No one needs proof of the nonexistence of things that do not concern them.  

      The scientific method is what got you a computer to write your comments on.

      •  the point remains (none)
        pluto existed long before anyone had proof that it existed.

        •  Falsifiability (none)
          is the key.  Objects and ideas without evidence -- not in the same category of falsifiability.
