Very, very well done. I look forward to perusing all of your web site, and spreading
the word indeed.
For the record, I am a new agnostic, fresh "out of the closet" this year. Thanks to
you, Sam Harris, and so many others, for helping me in this transition. Ah...so many
fundamentalist family members, so little time.
I am writing to comment on the word "belief." I am convinced that it is a useless
word. Can you think of one sentence, using the word "belief," where I would be
unable to substitute that word with another, thereby improving the clarity of the
sentence (and inherent lack of honesty for that matter?). I can't!
Belief, simply put, is nothing more than a willingness to be delusional. I don't
"believe" I'll live until 80. I hope. I don't believe a meaning of life exists. I
trust. I don't believe I'll have a beer with supper. I suspect it probable.
