Letter: Vision that drew me from atheism

Sir: If the possessor of one of "the brightest, most subtle and most perceptive minds of his generation" ("Twenty-five years of Ireland's Dr No", 20 September) believes in the Devil, the Anti-Christ and God's curses on unbelievers, there can be no hope for the people of Northern Ireland.

One wonders about the beliefs of those afflicted with duller, less subtle and less perceptive minds than Ian Paisley: firebreathing dragons and fairies at the bottom of the garden?
