At the same time, "mere" experience accounts for a lot of what is known to be fact. All of science is basically based on experiences and observations that can be reproduced and verified. Not only can I say for certain that I personally feel differently than before I took up yoga, but there is a wealth of evidence of its benefits and effects. This is quite different from saying that I  can be wrong unless I feel I am right.

As I feel that I’m walking on egg shells, I won’t answer in any depth. I’ll only say that, at root, my point was that any answer that begins with ‘because I know from experience’ needs to be scrutinized. It is, after all, the agent of personal miracles.

At any rate, cheerio!!

You don't really think that such a glib simplification is what i am describing, do you?  Do you really think that our senses can never be trusted? I mean, I understand when my senses could be misleading, but I think they can be trusted to indicate what i am actually experiencing.

So, I’ll paraphrase again “I know you are but what am I”.

I don’t think I need to retort that beauty.

same can be said of you, or any of us whose argument against religion is that there is no sensible explanation for it, as in, evidence that appeals to our senses.  Even science in fallible.  That doesn't mean that every time we use our senses we're wrong.

I disagree.  Obviously our senses can be tricked, but it's our use of human senses that make us atheists!
