I understand what your point is but your analogy is weak.  Any sufficiently
advanced technology is indiscernible from magic, or in this case, what may
appear to be religious in nature.

Just because all Christians suddenly disappeared does not mean they went
somewhere due to the rapture.  We can not yet alter matter to form other
matter but that doesn't mean it can't be done.  Seeing is not always
believing, just ask any magician.

I have had this very same discussion with a few religious people I know.
