CONFESSION IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL

My conscience will not let me alone until I confess. After a run of a little over a hundred wins in FreeCell, which took me over the 97% mark, I made a stupid blunder, and used one undo, which I ordinarily do not permit myself, to recoup, after which I went on to win, and have now racked up another fifteen wins. I am afraid any records I set will have to be accompanied by an asterisk.

This has nothing to do with free cell, but a little about free will. I'd be interested in what you have to say about Christopher Beha's article in the July 2012 issue of Harper's, where he reviewes three new books on atheism, especially Alex Rosenberg's "The Athiest's Guide to Reality" and his "nice nihilism" that emphatically follows from his brand of scientism.

Thanks,
Mark

Prof. Wolff, Did you have a chance to read the review?

Robert Paul Wolff said...

No. I went out to Bennett four days in a row last week, and was wiped out. But I have it now, and will read it today.
