Thank you for the welcome. I see you are at Oxford. I want you to promise next time you walk the halls of Magdalen that you'll remember me, silently, to Oscar Wilde. He is my all time hero. But you might also put in a warm thought for Antony Flew.
I'm in the US, but have been to the UK three times thus far. I have visited "that other university," but am ashamed to have never seen Oxford. Having devoured Brideshead Revisited repeatedly over the past thirty years, that is a real regret.
I am a retired mathematician (actually, I just quit when a Dean wished me to lower expectations), with a passion for language and poetry. And of course, wishing that humans would assign praise to something other than a deity.
Thanks, Terence, much appreciated.
I'm new to groups, but would like to know how to share some of my articles and excerpts from my book that people enjoy and get a kick out of.
For example, when Zach found Jesus late in life (Zach's life), I told him not to sweat if because gods are like auto parts - all fail in time. We went back and forth until I asked him how much Jesus had charged him for his frontal lobotomy, and it went downhill from there.
How do I submit articles?
I told my Catholic brother that the Catholic church had objected and protested the discovery of the Higgs Boson because of the claim that the Higgs gave mass to the universe, clearly an intrusion on the Church's magisteria and theological bailiwick.
I was not invited to Easter dinner.
