This is the research paper that I was doing for my C. S. Lewis class that I was talking about.  I made an “A” on it and the prof was very impressed.  I wanted to share it here because it does discuss Humanism and other philosophies in an effort to prove my thesis.  Again, I make no profit off this, I just want to share it.  Enjoy!  And feedback is always appreciated.  :D Thanks.

Thanks, Doug.  cheese  I apparently put “Old Knock” AKA W.T. Kirkpatrick to good use too.  I just loved what he said, “You can have enlightenment for ninepense but you prefer ignorance” and just had to use it along with his other sayings too.  The man would have called Lewis on it, most definitely and made him think.  Lewis didn’t know the meaning of the word atheist obviously or he thought it meant, a rejection of theism.  In which case, he was a non-theist, but not a true atheist.

Good paper!  Forgive me for pointing out one small typographical error, though.  Your 19th footnote reads “193”.

Whoops!  I couldn’t get the links to the citations to work on site, so I must have messed up when I tried to remove the links.  Thanks for pointing that out for me, Advocatus.  I’ll get that fixed right away.

I’m glad you enjoyed my paper too.  smile Thanks so much for the feedback.
