One can be a hobbyist. Like me. I don't believe a word of either
testament, but Christianity is my favorite hobby and I'll bet I can
out-reference the whole damn barroom. (I think Borges was a hobbyist
too, fwiw.)

Oh, on another subject, I don't believe Seawrack was "in love with" Horn
either--Endy seems right on the money. I continue to be unpleasantly
surprised at the seeming sketchiness and hastiness of an ending that
bundles everyone (a bunch of near-strangers) off together on a Star Trek
