In an attempt to be clever and play off of a religious theme we've managed to leave out, as Comment 2 points out, several wise men and women, let's not forget the women... again. I have a bit of a puke taste seeing yet another adaptation of religious talk being applied to atheism; though, I probably do it myself.

Let's think inside a bigger box. Note* you cannot think outside the box.

172 wise men and women

would have been a much better title and actually kick them in the nuts with their own theme, not meme, theme.

I am rather surprised to know that both Sam and Hitchens book is not available for customers having Kindle in India. We protest and would like to knopw why? Or do they think there are no atheist in India.

Comment 5 by rkher531 :

Perhaps Richard's publisher would have some information on that, so it may well be worthwhile asking here, but I suggest you take it up with Amazon. If the person you talk to can't give you an answer, insist on talking to their superior. Repeat until you get a definite answer.

The Wise Men probably didn't exist, in the way the loch ness monster probably doesn't exist, but "if" they did, they were not very wise...at least two of them. One guy brings gold. The other two bring incense and bubblegum (Myrrh). I see one wise man, a stoner, and a shitty gift-giver.
