I thought I had!

Anyway - the basic argument is that if, as those who have religious
beliefs undoubtedly do, you define God as super-natural, then it means
you cannot use any argument from the natural to prove existence or
non-existence becuase he/she/it is defined as inaccesible to such

An analogy would be spatial dimensions - if you use two-dimensional
coordinates e.g. to define a point on a plane, then no matter what
combination of numbers you use you can never extend into the third
dimesnion because it is excluded by your use of two-dimensional
coordinates.  By definition 2D coordinates cannot access the third
dimension, similarly physcial arguments have no access to
super-natural phenomena.
