I lost my enthusiasm for journalism long ago when I tried it at university and discovered that it wasn't just about reporting news. I don't know which is worse: the idea that people would write so shamelessly or the idea that people will buy the newspaper only if they write so.

Don't overanalyse this. 6.9 recurring can be represented as a curve that aims for, constantly approaches, and yet never reaches a line representing the number 7. It's a fun way of saying that his allowance for belief in a deity is so small that, for all practical purposes, he's a straight-up atheist.

I'm glad to hear the discussion was civilized, even though I haven't seen it yet. I can't stand antagonistic "debates" because the clash of personalities gets in the way of the relevant intellectual issues.
