The philisophical loophole of free will may give an illusion of infalible truth to a believer but to the outside observer it seems quite an ad hoc answer to a fundamental flaw.

There is no solid evidence for the God solution, for that reason I don't see why it should be put up on the same level as observable facts.

Would a million people starting the 2+2=5 club make the mathematical law of addition any less real? And wouldn't it take an absolute 2+2=4 (anytime, anywhere), to prove them wrong?

Moral Law is less clear only because man lives in a confused state.

And you're right, there is no such thing as magic in the real world. (Ever hear of a chap named James Randi? The best debunker around.) There is, however, a supernatural world. That's why no x-ray or surgeon's scalpel will ever find the human soul. It's not of this world.

Nope, but I am fully capable of feeling and falling in love as much as anybody else.
