Listened to your show on the way to work. Very well handled. But I am puzzeled by the use of the terms "non-believer and people of non-faith. Consider--Every philosophy has a foundational point of origin that is based on Faith. i.e. "there is either something more than us, something beyond the now and ourselves, OR this is all there is. Either position is based on a decision by an individual that is purrely based on FAITH. You can not prove there is nothing outside of ourselves. Every person's phylosopy and world view is based on one of the two positions. Without exception. For anyone to say they are not BELIEVERS is intellctually dishonest. One must be able to posit their statement both positively as well as negatively or it is not a true, tested statement. ie. I do not believe inanything more than this is all there is vs. I believe this is all their is. Once a person owns up to the positive statement of their position, they have jsut owned up to their FAITH.
Respectfully, Wayne Lund
