164. I was referring to angels and other aspects of Christianity.
Not to god. I'm an agnostic myself. I tend to think that it's unlikely that god exists, but I really don't know. I certainly don't rule it out as a possibility. And I don't think less of Christians (or any other religious group) who believes in god. I think god can be many different things to the people who believe in him/her. Science does not preclude the existence of god. However, science does explain where humans come from, so when religion tries to say that "God created man out of mud, then woman out of the rib of that man" I can confidently cry "bullshit". That's my issue with religion. When it attempts to explain what we already know. That may have been fine 2000 years ago, but it just doesn't work now.
