    Sounds like an interesting chap.

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

    unbridled stallion
    a slave free from his shackles
    a mind free from god

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

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

    @ 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.

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

    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.

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