My family isn't very religous, but when my friends or family do say something about god, I usually end up muttering noncommittal responces, because I'm afraid to say what I really believe. How do I…Continue

If people believe in God, why do they not believe in magic?

I've always grown up in a Christian/Catholic family, and as I grew older learned that there was no such thing as magic. But how can the story of Jesus and God be told without any magic or supernatural occurances? Is it some different type of trickery that God used? Because as soon as Hagrid gives me my Hogwarts letter, I'll believe.
