ah well, and now YOU know what I know or do not know, or so you claim. That can't be true. You believe that I don't know there is a G-d, ah, my friend, but I do. As once said, "how do we know so & so has a brain, I haven't seen it and seen no evidence that it exists." How do your prove if I know or don't know and what does it mean to know. Hey, we're heading into some deep philosophical waters here. As for the country being controlled by religious folks, that is a complete set of hogwash, evidence being that creationism is not taught and is illegal to be taught here in this open country.
