But Susan, you know so little about spiritual things. You have no experiences with prayers being answered, you once went to a dodgy fortune teller and you had a seance or whatever it was with some giggling friends, and now you know for sure there is no God and neither do you nor anybody else have a soul. And when we are dead it is forever (so what is the point of having lived). You take the word of that famous (infamous?) stage magician over a host of distinguished modern scientists. You distrust anybody who tells you about experiences outside the materialistic old science, because you have decided it cannot be, unless they come up with all sorts of proofs, and if books are being pointed out to you, you cannot read them, but happily reject them out of hand. Unread, understandable, but also rejected because the sceptical societies say they know better.

You enjoy a banter on the boards, and it is good you can still take part in that. There is nothing else I can think of to add here.

Maybe just a personal note about our weather. Yesterday was 31°C (85°F) and our electricity was cut off all day, over 8 hours, because of pole repair works. It meant no running water, only in several buckets, and it meant no fans. All windows open was no use. Fires in the centre of Tasmania with people evacuated. Better day today forecast, and the electricity is back. I have edited the list of things to take (lots!) if fire comes here. Makes me feel better, but will I panic instead of? Appealing to higher powers - certainly, but if it has to happen it will. I hope you believe in climate change? There should be enough signs of it by now everywhere, even David Attenborough believes it, but our government doesn't! Pathological disbelievers or self-centred numb-skulls.

GG.
