Me, too. Do you remember _Brave New World_? There were two alpha males. One was confident, beautiful, and popular...but he felt the need for something more. The other was shorter, weaker, and antisocial...people whispered about him, suspecting that something had gone wrong during his gestation.

Both were disatisfied. One was disastisfied with the world of experience. The other was disastisfied with himself, but expressed it as a hatred of everything around him.

If you are truely one of the former, then I envy you. I am one of the latter. I think there are far more of us, and that with faith and reason we can learn to emulate you. I'm trying. But I am weak. If I am to stand with you and fight the tide of insanity I need a little faith to resist the fear. But, please listen to me! If we are to redeem anyone else...we cannot oppose faith. I cannot, and fight beside you. You need to decide now...If you want me with you, then you have to accept my faith as part of me. Otherwise, I need to find a community that can. I'm not asking you to accept my faith as must find your own. I'm asking you to accept me, to have faith in me as a person, if you will.
