Dawkins asks “Do you really believe that when a priest blesses a wafer, it turns into the body of Christ?” I don't. I think when a priest blesses a wafer, you end up with a blessed wafer. But, when a priest consecrates bread, it becomes the [B]ody of Christ, yes, I believe that. If Dawkins wants to ridicule my beliefs, he could at least extend me the courtesy of ridiculing what I actually believe, not what he thinks I believe.

Dr. Peters,

In case you were on vacation last August and missed this line from atheist philosopher Bertrand Russell in an earlier comment here:

"I do not recognize my theory in your parody."

Another similar statement, quoted in the New York Times' obituary for Sir Karl Popper:

During the 1960's, Sir Karl came to be labeled a reactionary. He said that his views had been misrepresented.
"Criticism of my alleged views was widespread and highly successful," he said. "I have yet to meet a criticism of my views."
