What follows is the lesson I learned from an incident I witnessed close to 50 years ago. My readers deserve to hear my report (that you won't find anywhere else) on my own site. I surely hope you guys can help this "agnostic" follow through with his conclusion. I'm pretty sure Kevin would not agree with that conclusion. I didn't even think of that portion while I was posting at his blog. That thought came to me overnight.
