"Are you there, Jehovah? It's me, Mike O'Risal."

The comments to this entry have taken a turn for the decidedly silly. According to somebody called JE (that's how the person signs him/herself), I'm supposed to discard evidence-based reason, just kick rationality right out the window, scrunch my eyes shut real tight against the light, and whisper into the air, "Are you there, God? It's me, Margaret," or some such nonsense.

Been there, done that, wasted the time and got better, thanks. Why do all of these true-believers sound the same? Oh, yeah, it's because they've done away with critical thought in favor of some mushy, homogeneous puddle of wishful thinking.

I prefer a reality-based existence.
