As for David Scott Roberts comment, I thought that is was obvious that the point of "The Free Will Improvement Project" wasn't that this is a good idea, or that it was something we should do - it was simply that if we could do it - and prevent harm to others by using this rather extreme technology - then why doesn't god do something similar(since anything we could do should be easy for god to do)? Or is it the case that if god exists it could certainly do such an activity - and this is further evidence that god doesn't exist? Or is it that god certainly isn't benevolent - if he does exist and doesn't implement something like this?
In defence of the comment indicated on page 229 - I don't believe he just wrote that comment down - there are statistics to back that statement up - it would just take a little research to find the primary resource. Not that if a person's is less educated that means anything else about the person. My personal experience has indicated that the level of education effects how the person believes in christianity(or anything) - and how it should be applied to others. The less educated - the more towards intolerance of others with different beliefs. As for most of the book being ad hominem arguments , when I read it I didn't get that feeling. Some things might feel like ad hominem arguments simply from the perspective of the reader, but not the intentions of the writer. Still, if you provided more evidence of this, perhaps you could sway me on this opinion; however, saying that most of a book is ad hominem arguments against theists and the providing one example is not proof.

My last name is Domino so I was naturally curious about this book. I agree that Martin does not hold a candle to C.S. Lewis.
