To all,

I know (at least I hope this is the case) the statement above is somewhat in
jest, however for those who would like to explore this issue more I would
suggest Paul L. Maier's novel _A Skeleton in God's Closet_ (at the moment I
am relying on memory for the title). Then ask yourself what your response
would be.

It might be of help to others on this list if we could discuss our faith and
the results of science in more personal detail and that book would be an
excellent discussion starter.
