At Last, We Must Walk Together

Many years ago, I read the book Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. (I agree with Happy Skeptic’s assessment: Best. Book. Ever!) Just a few years ago, I finally got into Pratchett’s Discworld series, which I am really enjoying. He pokes a lot of fun at the concepts of religions and gods, but his satire is so gentle that his work appeals to religious and nonreligious readers alike.
Unfortunately, Terry Pratchett died this month. Sad news for those of us who felt like we knew him.
Here are a couple of links to Pratchett explaining his beliefs: an article (ignore the title, it’s just wrong), and an interview.
A few other links for inquiring minds:
