So for folks wondering what this is about, Clint and I went to college together (along with Mike Danforth who incidentally is Senior Producer at Wait Wait Don't Tell Me).

I've read the book, and I thought it was pretty forward-looking given the subject matter.  So much so that in years to come I suspect people will point to this book as the inflection point on the topic of faith in the digital age.

I'm pretty much apathetic agnostic myself (don't know don't care) but I still found this book interesting and relevant.

So if you're interested in such things, check it out

Why is there a question mark after the second recommendation?  Is there doubt?

Put your Faith in the one and only thing that has ever deserved it; human ingenuity and the technology it produces.

As much as there are people who do care about religious questions and over analyze various categories of faith I think the actual broad working definition of agnostic is just apathetic.

I am agnostic about any facts or controversies involving ice hockey.

Like I said, don't know don't care.  I'm busy with other things

Not usually the comments :)

My favorite title is "Breakfast of Champions: Beer and Oreo cookies, or Scotch and Fig Newtons?"
