Sorry I can’t figure out what the spam issue was.
At end of review it says Martin Gardner knew that it wasn’t sensible to believe in God, but he did anyway, because it made him happy.

Anyway—It is one of the nicer rationalizations of why one might believe
in God, and such a quiet argument it is kind of disarming.

Thanks for suggestiong that -a- thing causes spam— I thought it was if you wrote too much   smile or something…

There is no actual spam issue.  The program sometimes flags links as spam. Sometimes they go through, sometimes not.  It’s just one of those quirks.
