ANTIcarrot. Your comment was filled with vitriol and devoid of substance. You accused me of lying. Would you say that to my face? Let me know your name and address. I'd be happy to discuss it with you in person. I never asserted any second coming so don't put those words in my mouth. I asserted that a powerful Kentucky politician would not gather such a crowd as did Richard Dawkins. That's true. Of course there is public notice of Dawkins coming to a community but, as I correctly asserted, we do not have an advance team like a major politician would, nor do we do paid advertising. All true. Your comment about some hypothetical politician going to a built-in crowd at a mega-church is utterly unrelated to what crowd the person can draw on their own. So another non sequitur. And were we supposed to be impressed by your calculation of the population of Kentucky? Another non sequitur. My assertion is that Richard Dawkins, a man with class and strong reasoning, draws a big crowd, and an enthusiastic crowd. This ability is highly unusual. Such crowds can be encouraged to organize for change to overcome strong religious forces. Or, on the other hand, people can sit at their computers and make illogical and snide comments that contribute nothing whatsoever to moving us toward a more rational society. I hope most people will choose the former not the latter.
