i'm no religious kook. i was raised a lutheran. we are the most tenuous of christian legions. church and the worshipers therein horrifies me, actually. i was (trying to) jocularly supplant the messiah. get it? ha fucking ha. science explains god. or the G.enome O.rganizing D.evice, as this guy Matt Ridley calls it. So "get over" what? Science? You sound a bit of a nihilist. you'd probably dig this book, too. maybe you feel reproached by religious zealots. I am not. so don't take my little post here so seriously. it's reactions like yours that make religious fervor, on both sides, an odiom. hey, matt also relates religios fervor to genes. Chapter 3, i think.
