For those suffering from Ebola, it's tempting to seek meaning where there is none. They see it as punishment from the Invisible Magic Friend. The Big Book of Magic Stuff is full of instances of misfortune or sickness being attributed to the Invisible Magic Friend. The Big Book of Magic Stuff is, of course, wrong - except when it right, for example when it talks about the visible bit of the Invisible Magic Friend.

You should definitely pay attention to what I say, because I only believe in the right bits of the Big Book of Magic Stuff, and I never, ever, ever see meaning where there is none.

Prayer is really good. In fact, prayer is so good, that even when you're not praying, you are in fact, praying. As a writer and journalist, and not anything else at all, isn't that great?

The people of Scotland have voted to retain the union. This reminds me of the Big Book of Magic Stuff. If they had voted the other way I really don't know what it would have reminded me of.

Today, Scots are divided between "Yes" and "No". Let us hope that, after the vote, they will be as united as Christianity is.
