57. "but your argument was that I don't believe in unicorns"

Oh, come on. I've read your posts and you're smart enough to know that was just an example. Could have been "Mickey Mouse is the Supreme Leader of the Universe' or whatever. And it wasn't simply unicorns...it was giant, polka-dotted unicorns. Ever seen them in a cartoon?

Here's a challenge. You accuse us nay-sayers of not proving our position. Tell us one thing you don't believe in and provide proof that it doesn't exist. You can choose from a multitude of gods (Zeus, Osiris, Mithra...the list goes on and on), fabulous beasties (dragons, fairies, phoenixes (phoenices??), Bigfoot, Nessie..) or anything else. Your choice, and your choice only.

Now, I anticipate you'll say something like "I'm not going to do your homework for you" but then you're putting yourself into the group of people who you are complaining about i.e. those who disbelieve something but refuse to provide evidence. You wouldn't want that, would you?

But think of the wider picture. We nay-sayers have struggled with providing proof of the non-existence of gods, fairies and bigfoot. If YOU could provide a brilliant proof of something you don't believe in, we nay-sayers would learn a great deal. Plus, we could adopt your argument to disprove the existence of fairies, Bigfoot and Osiris. We'd be most grateful.

PS you have a very shallow view of history. There are a number of American historians who have challenged and are challenging the "mainstream" view of American history. I know this and I'm not even American.
