You have no idea how gratifying it is to have someone so erudite and articulate as a spokeman for atheism. I'm an old codger who managed to retain a functioning mind despite 12 years of Catholic education (including four college years with the dreaded Jesuits). I promote atheism by writing for Web sites and responding to unbelievably foolish letters that appear in the local paper.And I consider myself no slouch as a debater.But I'm quite in awe of your intellect (and your unfailing ability to remain civil regardless of the provocation). So please accept my sincere thanks for your efforts. And be assured that you have sizeable and very enthusiastic fan club. More power to you, sir.
