When people ask you something like, "Do you believe in magic?" what is your answer? How long do you take to answer this? Have you ever thought about it? Here are my thoughts of the subject.
When someone asks me that same question, or at least something similar, I tend to delay my answer by about a second. Of course, a second in extremely short, but a delay is a delay. How can people answer that question with complete certainty? How do we actually know whether fantastical creatures and myths are real or not? This has been a set of questions left unanswered for centuries.
