Mechanization, Mathematics, Mencken...


A departure from the norm for this Sunday's reflection... instead of a quotation, I'll just refer you to this entire month-old post from Michael Harris:

To whet your appetite though, it starts off by referencing H.L. Mencken:
"When H.L. Mencken, an avowed atheist, was asked if he believed in baptism, he replied 'Believe in it? I’ve seen it done!'"
