The principal reason that I am not an atheist is that I am an optimist. However, whenever I have been tempted to think that we just go into an eternal sleep perpetua nox dormienda I think of: Sir Thomas More; of John Donne (especially his poem A Hymn To God The Father), and of Dorothy L Sayers. If minds as great as theirs embraced a conventional faith, then who am I to doubt it? The picture is of Sir Thomas More.
