Reader MrBwood wrote -- once more, in response to John Shook:
"How does this guy type this without laughing?"
And I responded:
"I see two possibilities:
"1) He's a believer
"2) He is laughing -- all the way to the bank, figuring that a book about a "debate between atheists and the faithful" will sell well."
If this disappears later, it would tend to support my thesis that seeing through authors' cynical motivations vis-a-vis their readers gets comments deleted.
