What I wrote at the Wall Street Journal about reality.

Every miracle, including the Muslim belief in a moon that split in half, and the Christian belief in a decomposing preacher who rose from the dead, is a belief in supernatural magic.

Is supernatural magic real? Can a god with unlimited magical powers throw out reality and make impossible things happen?

I'm convinced supernatural magic including magic god fairies are just childish fantasies. I can't imagine how reality can be thrown out. Reality is not going anywhere.

Everything we see in the universe can be explained or eventually will be explained by science. Scientific progress will continue forever. Meanwhile primitive religions are permanently stuck in the Dark Ages.

One of my favorite quotes:

"There is a fundamental difference between religion, which is based on authority, and science, which is based on observation and reason. Science will win because it works."
-- Stephen Hawking
