It continues to annoy me enormously that people discuss "God" in this sort of context without ever asking anyone to explain what it is and how it operates. Why is there always this unspoken assumption that everyone knows what they are talking about?

I wish that after they asked the initial question, they then asked those who answered that God had created humans to explain exactly how God did this. I'm pretty sure that in every case there would have been a long silence followed by a few "ums" and "ers". What else could anyone say? It might make a few of them reflect on the fact that they are making assertions about absolutely nothing at all.
