Yes, although you do have a different perception of theology to Rees,
and indeed practically all other scientists I know of. I won't comment
on theologians of course, I don't really know any all that well.

Not to say your perception is wrong, but it will take a Herculean
effort to get other to think along your lines.

Cheers
