Well, obviously I wasn't paying much attention if I missed that! I
was only on line for a couple of weeks on the list. Why
do you push Dawkins and his two books in yours? "You don't believe in
evolution? If you would read the Blind Watchmaker and what was the
other one?, you would." Wasn't that on the footnote of your page?
The crux of his argument seems to be if you believe in God there is
something wrong with you. Which God do you believe in? I know you
said the Bible was one of the books that influenced you most but
people say that all the time--they think it is lengend, etc.

I haven't read any of your other books, so I guess I don't know what
you think. I couldn't get much of anything out of those exchanges
between you and Tad; they were such calculated moves--back and forth
and back and forth--it really meant nothing to me. It seemed
superficial, but maybe I was missing something. Darwinsim is a
crock--but Dawkins seems to build on it. You recommend him to your
readers--what am I to think?

I never said I was perfect. But I don't think that is true. How do
you serve God, Richard. I would very much like to know.

How can you "save" me Richard. I thought that was the perogative of
the Son of God? Which God is it you serve? I should like to know.
I may be brash, stubborn and many other things--but I've always let
you know where I stand. And when I am truly convinced that I am
wrong, I will be the first to say so--I hope. Cathy
