Mr. Klein responded. Here is his reply, in its entirety:
Mr Baker,Mouth hangs agape.
You're absolutely right on my not reading the entire sight and jumping to conclusions.
"I don't have a god. But fuck you right back anyway, not that I expect you bothered to read anywhere near this far. Your lips would get too tired"
- I did happen to read the entire response you wrote back - and liked it very much.
I also like your quick wit and ability to backup your statements -
I would like to do the same in this e-mail - unfortunately I do not have the time at the moment.
PS. Agnostic myself - I admire someone who hasn't consumed the kool-aid. On the subject of IQ - I last tested when I was 6yrs old, with a number very similar to yours. I don't have enough information to put any weight to that, other than my assumption that it's higher than most of the U.S. population. My apologies for being a schmuck and jumping to conclusions about you from one paragraph on your website, I very much enjoy *spirited* outlooks/viewpoints - I think I may have to read a lot more of your site.
Perhaps there is some hope, after all!
Naaah. Probably not.
Edited to add: Mr. Klein's original missive reminded me of a piece I wrote back in December. His peg fits perfectly into the philosophical hole I wrote about in On Guillotines and Gibbets. Read it (hopefully again) and see if you agree.
