As a fellow nonbeliever
I, too, find good reason
To fear the god of believers

Scientist; an interesting comment. It made me re read the article 2 more times. I didn't see where he said that he had any fear for the god of the believers.

@Shimlau

It's a derivation of the poet's statement. An anachronism stated literally. Try and keep up.

@ slcdenizen; oh, I see. I guess since I'm a believer, i looked at the term 'god fearing'
as a believer would. thanks for pointing that out to me.

Scientist is at his best when his tongue is planted firmly in his cheek.

I enjoy his wry comments...perhaps a haiku next time.

Sounds like an interesting chap.

Nevertheless, the phrase "having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof" comes instantly to mind.
