I regretfully report that the Kindle version of Averick's book is not the same as the print version. But still... We all believe as an article of faith that life evolved from dead matter on this planet. - Dr. Harold C. Urey Mung
Over at TSZ, commenter "Patrick" suggests that existence claims about God be treated like existence claims about sasquatch. Hunting party anyone? Mung
