My problem with God

Maybe you don't want to read about my problems. Maybe you don't want to read, in particular, about My problem with God.

I appreciate that -- along with politics -- religion is something that should probably be given its own discussion space. So that's why I've started a new blog, called Notes from an Evil Burnee, where you can find my various musings on faith, rationality, religion and scepticism (or skepticism for those beyond the pond).

I've discussed matters of faith before, here at Who says I shouldn't do this?, but such discussions will henceforth be posted over at Evil Burnee.

So it was with surprise bordering on disbelief that I spied this page of buying advice in the latest (July 2007) issue:

Look at that recommended PC in the bottom right-hand corner. If you think your eyes are deceiving you, here's a blow-up:

Yes, it's a Mac.
