Sugar daddies will wing in with money, I have no doubt.

And I hope religious nuts sink money into that tar pit...

They could sink the GNP of Costa Rica into the place and not notice the event on their check books.

Quote from: A.A. Allen,  to Marjoe Gortner, quoted in James A Haught, Covering the Bible Belt II: A Freethinker’s Testimony

When you can turn people on their head and shake them and no money falls out, then you know God's saying, "Move on, son."

It's funny how the religious Right consider eye witness testimony their gold standard of evidence. For many years now, eye witness testimony has been considered one of the weakest forms of evidence due to how surprisingly unreliable human memory actually is.
"Oh, wearisome condition of humanity,
Born under one law, to another bound;
Vainly begot, and yet forbidden vanity,
Created sick, commanded to be sound."

But you have to admit that eyewitness testimony has removed all doubt that the funny lights in the sky are actually alien spaceships.

Yeah, and they're always touting the "eyewitness testimony" of the empty tomb, and the "above five hundred" who (allegedly) saw the risen Jesus!

The empty tomb is fun to play with.

We can see the big bang.   You can see the afterglow, 2.725°K throughout the entire universe.

Correct, but not visible to the naked eye ;-)  Interpretations of what happened before that ... vary.

Did Rush Limbaugh see Jesus? If not, same "logic" applies in this instance.

It's visible to the naked eye through the right instrument. 

I can see all the way from x-rays to radio waves with the right equipment.

And that is one of the wonders of the scientific method.  That we can see farther than our ancestors who could only make bad guesses and create deities to explain things.
