Good book. Actually, it is Davies, P. C. W. (Paul). Just to give the
guy his due. I have read much of his writing. Someone on the list a
few days ago said (perhaps offhand) that he/she (pretty sure he) would
never read a book with "God" in the title. I was going to mention it
then. Glad you did now.

As a computer geek, I rank low on the science food chain. (Oh no a
vertical axis!) But I have lots of friends who really do science and
good science at that. They don't weigh in on the God thing much. But I
do see them leaving in their cars on Sunday morning and I know where
they go... I myself do not do the church thing much but I will go to a
study group for ACIM or go to a Friends meeting. Plan to go to Plum
Village when I retire. Helps keep me sane.

I figure life will end pretty much sooner than I will like, so I better
do as much living as I can. As to after... well now is enough for
