Day 10: Imagination and Bias

I'm sitting down at dinner and one of the elders mentions a fellow on TV who said something like this, "when you see how intricate and awesome existence is, you just can't help but wonder 'is there a god?'"
Problem with this... would he have even said this had he not already been introduced to theism? I can imagine many things that are not gods. I can imagine my son turning in his homework or wonder about possible explanations for the gravitational fields being emitted by dark matter in black holes. Just because I can create scenarios in my head doesn't mean that they're real unless they can be demonstrated in some way.
