I've read nearly half of David Braine's The Reality of Time and the Existence of God.
Mine is a used copy.
Starting around page 115, I noticed the pencil marks from the previous owner appear less and less frequently.
A perusal of the remaining 200 pages suggests he or she made no further marks.
In all likelihood, that reader did not finish the book.
I have made marks on at least page 120.
All I have to do now is live long enough, or keep my sight long enough, to finish the book.
If Braine's argument is right, the future is as open to me as it is to God. May He sustain my existence until the last page!
