This is tied into the "God" issue, since if there's no such thing as the supernatural, then a supernatural "God," the "afterlife," and angels and demons, etc. cannot exit.
Can anyone name one non-physical thing that exists and offer a meaningful argument/evidence for it?

- W kłopocie wydaje się być i Kościół:
- Big Bang theories become a problem for Catholic theology only when they consider “the moment of creation.” That, at least, is what Pope John Paul allegedly told Stephen Hawking and other physicists during an audience that followed a papal scientific conference on cosmology. (Some scientists dispute Hawking's account, and say that the Pope suggested no limitations on their inquiry.) The Pope told the physicists they should not inquire into the Big Bang itself because that was “the work of God.” Stephen W. Hawking, in his A Brief History of Time, reported that he was among those physicists whom the Pope privately addressed. He wrote:
- I was glad then that he did no know the subject of the talk I had just given at the conference—the possibility that space-time was finite but had no boundary, which means that it had no beginning, no moment of Creation.
