Although I may not agree, the words are truly moving.
Here's an excerpt from Stefan's recently finished manuscript:
"And as I begin to think about what I have just written, I'm struck by what I feel is the strongest argument for design: a sense of purpose. For I feel that I have a purpose on this planet, that I am destined to achieve great things. Perhaps it is just my own desire, but where does that come from? Why am I so compelled? Is it to leave my mark on the human race? To obtain a certain immortality like Caesar or Alexander? Maybe. But I think that there is something else to it. This sense of purpose is inside of me, and it fills me, and I cannot ignore it. Surely it can be broken down to a molecular level, can be explained away by genetic coding. Surely it can be attributed to natural selection; to my inherent pre-disposition towards survival. Surely there are a hundred better explanations. But I'm still not ready to accept them."
