I don't think that word means what you think it does

I saw "God Explained In A Taxi Ride" in a bookshop, opened it at random and was convinced that it's a load of vacuous twaddle by the page that asserts something like "when an atheist thinks about evolution and a believer thinks about God, they're thinking about the same thing".

Anybody who thinks that the words "evolution" and "God" can plausibly refer to the same item obviously doesn't undestand the meaning of one or both of them.

Re: I don't think that word means what you think it does

There's a apeaker on my desk that I like to refer to as a 'hedgehog'. Or is it a hedgehog that I've just referred to as a 'speaker'?

Re: I don't think that word means what you think it does

But what animal are you if you don't know anything at all, like me? A mudskipper, perhaps? Or a naked mole-rat? Yes, I'd like to think that this is the work of a mudskipper (or possibly the offspring of mudskipper and naked mole-rat). The book, I mean, not the cover.

Congrats on the offspring Quentin, you modest fox!

Thank you, you saucy minx. (I believe that's a cross between a Manx cat and a sphinx.)
