So a couple of chaps, one older who talked a lot and one young who didn’t say anything, came to the door today and started quoting the bible at me. I think the older one detected my lack of enthusiasm quite quickly, and gracefully conceded he wasn’t going to get very far, but he did ask me why I thought the way I did. I said something about being the kind of fellow who needs to see plenty of evidence before accepting a proposition that seems – to me – so counterintuitive, and he said:

“Well, there’s no evidence for electricity, but I bet you believe in that, don’t you?”
