I listened to your interview with Tom Sunic, which was excellent and interested me in purchasing your book. I agree that such terrible acts are part catharsis. They also deliver a satisfying just penalty to the victims, that is, to the mind of the perpetrator. Your statement regarding the benefit of faith in the existence of a transcendent power was also interesting, especially since Tom Sunic has no such belief. I corresponded with him briefly on that subject. Actually, I don't have faith in the existence of such a power, but have a logic based perception of the existence of such a power. It is an amazement to me how persons can arrive at the conclusion that no such creative power exists when so great an array of complexity exists in the universe - like a mush of particles without intelligent guidance will arrange themselves into a pussycat? I am also purchasing Michael Shermer's book on how people who believe in such a power are deluded. Perhaps I will find a satisfying answer to how he arrives at his totally illogical conviction there.
