Some people mattered in the production of this book. Ross Bromley, a tireless atheist and rationalist made a number of surprisingly helpful comments on two earlier chapters. Philosopher Dr Robert Miller also made a number of valuable comments on the introductory chapter. Special mention must be made of philosopher Dr Geoffrey Marnell. Not only did he do an excellent job on copy editing the book, he took on the role of a hostile devil’s advocate of the work. Dr Marnell made well over 400 comments on the text, sometimes highly detailed, sometimes pedantic, sometimes humorous, always highly intelligent. Naturally, all errors, omissions and views remain the sole responsibility of the author.
