    Why hasn't the experiment of the "United States of America" been discarded as a failed hypothesis?

    Mispronunciation of magic spells and the fascinating implications of said results. Puns said, and dunned. Even with lifelong experience in magery, and eventual mental recitation of spells that comes with imagination manifestation, to what extent do words of power (Egyptian heka) need be literal forms of speech, imagined then incanted concepts, or as Ursula K le Guin wrote, "the true naming of a thing," the inherent nature of an object put to words. Much like Hegel's Essence vs Being vs Notion, the power of a word exist as Being (language, categories of reflection, a drawn curtain) or Notion (a non-rational hunch of understanding) or Essence ("the truth of Being" or knowing "what being is in and for itself") such that the slight mispronunciation of Diagon Alley lands you diagonally upside a mixed thought, misspoken word, and a fixed place.

    I wonder what the relationship between “knowing someone” in the Biblical sense and the question of God’s existence is.

    To “know someone” Biblically means to have a sexual intimacy with that person, but I find it interesting that sexual intimacy leads to “knowing” someone.

    In the same way, knowing God means to have an intimacy with Him throughout our lives. I wonder if the two are related?

    And if that’s the case, materialists/denialists who lack intimacy with God would have no knowledge of Him. With no knowledge of God comes no evidence of God.

    “That’s not evidence”

    And they wouldn’t be lying from their view as they have no experience of God. In the same way, Photographs of your loved ones wouldn’t be the evidence of (Storge) love. The evidence of (Storge) love would be in our daily lived experience of them.

    Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand.
    He had long since decided that the world, Above or Below, was a place that wished to be deceived, and, to this end, he had named himself from a lie in a fairy tale, and created himself--his clothes, his manner, his carriage--as a grand joke...

    "I wanna get to know you biblically." is my new pick up line. So many women I wanna get to know.
    الخَيلُ وَاللَيلُ وَالبَيداءُ تَعرِفُني *** وَالسَيفُ وَالرُمحُ وَالقِرطاسُ وَالقَلَمُ
    Swift steeds, dreary nights, and the desolate wasteland, all know me full well
    As do the sword, the spear, the paper and the pen.
