197. Just like the religious... sure you are correct, even with the lack of evidence.

"I also find it amusing that you keep relying on Sagan's summary of the argument from ignorance as proof that Moses must exist."

LOL! Now that is a typical move of the "religious folks" you like to rail against. I never said Sagan's summary proves Moses existed. Not once have I said whether he did or didn't. You simply MADE UP a point in order to deny it...another logical fallacy known as "Strawman." Good job! It simply demonstrates you really don't understand the principles involved, of either logic nor science.

Your next paragraph is another logical fail because you seem to think I have attempted to prove the story of Exodus or Moses' being real. NOPE. Also, you fail to understand what I have said and what Sagan said. Shame really. Like the religious who think they are always right, so do you and those like you. You, like them, are unwilling to simply accept that some things are unknown. Prior to 1750, those like you would be claiming there are no planets past Saturn as a FACT; a truth...and, YOU'D BE WRONG. So, again, more slowly this time...just because there is no evidence, does not mean it doesn't exist (nor does it mean it does it exist). Sorry, but that is a fact.

Given that your arguments, especially the last few, have relied heavily on logical fallacies, I think you have more in common with the "cranks" then you might like to acknowledge.

You might want to take a course in logic and probability.
