    Sorry, Rich, this type of Christian nonsense requires a response.
    Please provide further evidence for your reasoning. In the meantime,
    you can consider me a Christian. The kind of Christian who believes
    all evidence against Christianity must be interpreted as an allegory
    and re-defined. In other words, a Christian who believes in absolutely
    nothing. For the sake of honesty, integrity, and fair play, though -
    please don't consider me a Christian.
