A little late to this, but I’m going to say that Colin Schultz gets…it…right…Thank you. I like your penmanship, also.
I could “elucidate” the part of the column that mystified Mr. Schultz but that would land me in bad faith, and tbh I had to resign from the debating society in 2011. Partly because neuroscience taught me that debate bruised my cerebral cortex. But, then, scientists also taught me that belief in God might reshape my brain—for the better. Alas, the same scientists who advocate faith for people in pain or sorrow (all of us?) don’t like actual professions of faith by humans who write about it. If this were the age of Berkeley or Pascal, we might have a nice new capital-P paradox on our hands.
