    You seem to be having problems with simple reading comprehension, Frank. It says nothing of the sort. He is simply saying that you don't know what you really believe until that belief is put to the test. It is easy to SAY you believe in something when there are no consequences to that belief. But when there are consequences, then you will find out if you really believe or not.

    Funny Shuny, you seem to be the only one coming to this conclusion. This has nothing to do with Pascal's Wager, and I would have no problem if it did - so on this point I do not have a dog in this fight. But we all know how much you dislike Christ and His Church so you take cheap shots wherever you can.

    Clearly the only possible explanation is that you are the reincarnation of CSL.

    Or Lewis was the preincarnation of Sparko.

    That must be it. I wonder if I can get the publishers to start sending me the royalties from his books?
