Dear Mr Harpur,

I read most of Kuhn's articles and loved them. He is very hard to read and distill the most important points so I'm looking forward to read your book.

Unfortunately most people will always prefer the literal fairy tales. That is why religions were taught as exoteric ans esoteric. We already had countless discussions on this board and those who stick to their literal version of the Bible, stick to it to the end no matter what. In fact it only reinforces their resolve that we, who read the Bible symbolically, are all god's enemies, serpent worshipers and deserve to be struck by the appocalypse.

Not to mention the success of Da Vinci Code that makes me shiver.

Kuhn says at some point that "Israel" and 'chosen people" meant those who embarked on the spiritual path and search for truth, not a nation or race. We are now in the middle of the showdown between the three abrahamic religions as a result of this tiny misunderstanding.

Best luck with your book,
Maria
