I think that the description of the logical positivist stance is quite wrong; a logical positivist would say that the question is meaningless as its answers are unverifiable.

Excellent point.

I’m also not sure that nihilism implies one can “do anything”, i.e. armed robbery in the pictograph.

That is not a universal practice among Christians.

Presumably a mime field would be a bunch of mimes pretending to be moving with the wind, or maybe simulating the creation of a crop circle.

Or Theresa May running through.
