[QUOTE]Cabesas, While I myself follow reason as my chosen path, I must say I agree with those of faith here. I have read all the posts up to this one and I have to honestly say that you are overbearing in getting your point across. If your book reads the way you post blogs in forums like this one, I will pass on reading it.
