Collins: The difference is that my presumption of the possibility of God and therefore the supernatural is not zero, and yours is.

This is a bit like alternative medicine that works, repeatedly, and hence is called MEDICINE.

The supernatural that is for real is, or will be, called NATURAL. We just don't know what it is yet.

Pure figments of the deludeds' imagination, referred to by a variety of names like god, allah, etc, will always remain pure fantasy.

As to Odin, Thor, and the rest of that crowd, that is a different story. They are at least somewhat realistic. And one helluva lot more fun to read about. No goatfuckers there!
