the running discussion between PZ Myers and Jerry Coyne about whether or not anything could happen/be discovered that would change an atheist's mind that god exists had one more participant added to it when Greta Christina jumped into the fray. PZ responded. within the context of this discussion Jerry Coyne pointed to and commented on a post of physicist Sean Carroll where Carroll sought to define the "supernatural". Carroll's post is a good read in it's own right on the topic of whether or not dark matter is supernatural.
