Basically I liked qutsemnie’s remarks. I don’t make your connection to modifying qutsemnie’s post.
You said you come to a different conclusion than qutsemnie’s remarks but I don’t see how-given what you stated.
I think the brain in the vat bit takes this discussion out of bounds for practical purposes. But that’s me. Please carry on.

qutsemnie said:

the only inevitable conclusion is that we know nothing of physical existence (or lack thereof) and only believe things exist.  But, this seems like an impractical statement.

I do not come to the conclusion that the statement is impractical, but rather that the question of physical existence is.  We can not know if a god exists, but so what?  The brain in a vat/soccer ball example was just to illustrate that.

Wondering about spirituality

I rule out the existence of fairies without a second thought. I understand that there is no reason to believe fairies exist, within the boundaries of our understanding of the physical world. The same with dragons, leprechauns and Santa Claus.

How about the Woo of Fractals?

sorry, I was just doing some reviewing and couldn’t resist   wink

Didn’t you mean “resent”?

Don’t get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

No, I’m pretty sure he meant “resemble”. Play on words/sarcastic humor.
