After two years of blistering sales the Mind Shield’s mind influencing features are switched on.
A resistance movement is organized to combat the Mind Shield.
Dr. Ralph Orville first realizes that the Mind Shield is a threat to personal freedom when he removes a bullet from the brain of a gunshot victim- and destroys the patient’s Mind Shield in the process.

Is there a type of knowledge that is only available through religion? If such knowledge exists, is it certain to be true? Is there a realm of religious experience that is more real than trees or buildings or stars or whales? Is religious truth acquired through personal experience, revelation, contemplation, or written scriptures? What is the risk to one’s immortal soul of denying the existence or reality of God? Is it meaningful for an atheist to claim to believe in God, or is that simply a logical impossibility? What are the benefits of religion, and what would life be like without them? How is it possible to know which behaviors are morally correct without direct knowledge of God’s commandments? These and other questions concerning religious truth and knowledge are explored in The Reverent Atheist.
