That is some very civil and well-spoken dancing around an issue. The second-to-last guy is the only one that even got close to addressing the question that was actually raised. The guy didn't ask "is god a part of people's lives anymore?", the guy asked "where the fuck are the supernatural events that would be nigh-unquestionable evidence and manifestations of a god's will?"
What a waste of time, for everyone involved.
