“To talk of immaterial existences is to talk of nothings. To say that the human soul, angels, god, are immaterial, is to say they are nothings, or that there is no god, no angels, no soul.”

Thomas Jefferson1743 – 1826

    That is why he is on the list of the top 5 greatest leaders/Presidents of the United States of America.

    Unnatural and unobservable things, entities that are not subject to what we are (gravity, hot, cold, wind, impact, radiation, aging, growing, et cetera), entities that we can’t interface with, we can’t see, hear, feel, or otherwise perceive simply don’t exist.

    Ah, perhaps I was paraphrasing?

    Sinjin,

    I forget what President it was that remarked at a White House dinner for Nobel Laureates that this was the greatest gathering of brains ever at the mansion, except, of course, when Jefferson dined alone. Good writers quote from great ones, great ones steal from other great ones shamelessly.
