Comment 144 by Akaei :

It is disingenuous to define the supernatural out of existence. It is disingenuous to define existence so loosely as to conflate the existence of a concept with the existence of that which is conceived. I still find it fascinating even if (or perhaps because) the bottom line is that the supernatural is meaningless.

Fist of all, great post.

The revision on post 105 does not define supernatural out of existence. Instead, supernatural, lacking the ability to interact with nature, is indistinguishable from fiction. A supernatural realm could still exists, but it would be impossible for us to have knowledge of its existence.
