He doesn't HAVE to get out of bed in the morning. So what?
If he wants me to take him seriously, he has to do more than "SAY it". The
world is full of ideas, and most of them are crackpot. I'd rather think
about the ones which are in some way testable. I don't _NEED_ a god to
explain the origin of the universe, and I'll happily go to my grave with
the issue unexplained if that's the way it turns out.
