Re:Re: Luc Montagnier ... and Andrew Wakefield: living parallel lives

Only fruitcakes believe in God? Correction of inverted inheritance of
solomonic genius.

In my rushed rapid response to Mark Struthers' remark (9 May) that
believers in God were/are fruticakes [1] I made King David of Jerusalem
the recipient of solomonic genius, when he was in fact the father of the
legendary King Solomon. Sorry about that. David's Psalms are still worth
reading as they are full of extraordinary wisdom, including his published
diagnostic observations in Psalm 14 verse 1, and Psalm 53 verse 1. Some
will say King Solomon inherited the brilliance of his father, but
Scripture implies something more profound, indeed something
suprascientific. [3]
