Though I am agnostic in regard to the Christian creeds I am aware of I’ve always felt connected to something more. My evidence is the power of reflection to repay us with insight and inspiration. If those those imaginal, intuitive gifts are not the result of my own brainstorming, research or deliberation then they are the product of something more than my arbitrary choice.

It is lightening quick and must have been a difficult departure for him from his usual careful, thorough approach. Naturally I want to read that chapter slowly some day but my hope is that this might open a door for more people get a sense of what he has to offer. While I’m not a Christian I am fond of quite a few thoughtful ones I know online. I have thoughts about how it should be possible to be a professing Christian and appreciate the insights of the divided brain hypothesis.
