I took my college girlfriend to a physics seminar featuring Carl Sagan's
Cosmos, because she thought Sagan was the most gorgeous man on
two feet. That changed both our lives: she soon threw me back
for another guy who looked more like Sagan, and I was led to study
Steven Jay Gould, which led to Douglas Hofstadter's Escher Godel Bach,
which led me to realize that my religion and all religions I know of are
self referential systems, unverifiable. Changed my major from theology
to engineering. Atheists make poor ministers. spike
