Mr Loggerheads, Sir,

As I quoted in my early posts, if it were simply a matter of having empirical evidence there would be no need of a work of faith since faith requires belief in things for which empirical evidence may not exist. Therefore the decision to accept the presence of a higher deity becomes based on cold hard fact and leaves no possibility of accessing the faith "dimension". Faith is really a personal test of whether we are able to exceed the "surly bonds" of earthly understanding and attain a new dispensation based on more spiritual concepts.

I shall say no more of this subject on this forum since I am concerned that others may see my comments as proselytising.

Needless to say, as regards Mr Fry's exposition, it is my opinion that he would have been wise to consider the company he was keeping before he chose to comment in such a way.
