What is magic?

Atheists have accused creationists of saying that God created man by magic. They have to believe that dirt did magic all by itself and turned itself into people without any help from an intelligence, however. They don’t like me calling them magicdirters, but what alternative is there? No other term has been created for the broad process of stardust turning into people. But what exactly is “magic?” Arthur C. Clarke was an atheist, and he understood the issue. He said, “Technology we do not understand is indistinguishable from magic.” God simply used a process we do not understand to create man fully formed from dirt. It does not help to limit it to just putting life into dirt. We don’t have the technology to do that either. It does not help to say it was “natural processes.” That is simply a faith in another god that you call “natural processes.” you could also call it “Jupiter,” or “Zeus,” or “extraterrestrials.”
