And what was terrifying was not that they would kill you for thinking otherwise, but that they might be right. For, after all, how do we know that two and two make four? Or that the force of negative buoyancy works? Or that the past is unchangeable? If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable – what then?

The video won't play. How did it go?

Just to try to stay on topic (I don't read many pages) I will say that I have a magical charm, which dispels magic. If what you believe in continues to exist within the radius of my charms' effect, then it wasn't magic.

If it dispels at the event horizon, then it was magic.

I don't believe in any magic yet, because I can't see the difference between it and make-believe.

For that matter, I treat the word 'belief' a bit weirdly. If Brother Daniel says that he dislikes something I said, I pretty much believe him. If someone asks me if I believe in faith, I can say that I do, but if someone asks me if I believe that the building I am in will not fall upon me, I will wriggle and look for another way to express the fact that I do believe it. I know it, too, and would bet on it, but I don't like to admit that belief (the faith kind) has any part of it.

^ I think you are talking about probability with the building cunt.
Having been involved in the construction industry I know the probability of the balcony falling off is very low. The probability that all the sums by all the engineers where done correctly and that the construction company followed all the rules and regulations are very high. So Probably the balcony won't fall off.

However, sometimes they do and kill people.

Like going out in your car, the probability that you will have a serious or fatal accident is low, but it could happen and the insurance companies can work out the probability that it will happen.

People just Assume it will never happen to them.

As an atheist, the word faith has strong gaga fantasy connotations to me.
However, I read an article on faith that puts in the perspective of the probabilities of life going your way rather than always going against you. Otherwise, you couldn't or wouldn't get out of bed in the morning.

A bit like the pessimist, optimist conundrum.

I like using the anti-magic charm I have to discern the difference. If someone is really able to use magic (such as 'chi', or 'auras' or 'souls, they should have no problem finding and defining the radius of effect of my charm.

If they can't tell, then they don't have any real magic.

Peoples assumptions of magic are often more subtle.
Like, 'it was meant to happen'.
Like, 'evolution has a purpose'.
Like, 'some lifeforms are more "evolved" than other life forms'.

Or, their magic is just more powerful than your charm

No, because more powerful magic would simply make the charm more powerful, and it would still be dispelled / nullified / rendered fictional.

(I'm not answering that other fucker, because I expect he is too close to reality for this to be fun...)
