Chris - I understand you perfectly!!
We are having a discussion which has gone on for centuries. Science versus Intuition (I suppose).
To you, the most important question of my life is meaningless, and I can't understand why you don't think it is an important question.
If you are feeling frustrated, disappointed, and deflated (not to say depressed)....let it be a comfort to you to know that I am feeling the same.
It is not my wish to feel like this, and it certainly isn't my wish to cause you to feel like it.....but you did throw down the guantlet....by introducing the '50 Reasons' book....and I could not just walk away and ignore it.....but rather than cause you further annoyance....I will.
But you will be horrified to know....that I am just moving over to the Poetry thread....and not getting out of your hair completely!!!!!
