In THE TROUBLE WITH TENORS, Lorie Ham’s second mystery novel set in the exciting world of gospel music, Alexandra Walters, a gospel singer, finds that tenors bring nothing but trouble to her life when she returns home to find her tenor singing ex-husband trying to take their daughter away. Things get even more complicated when she is asked to help out at a local gospel music convention and finds herself accused of murder and literally fighting for her own survival. With the help of her boyfriend, private eye Stephen Carlucci, she digs up a multitude of secrets while searching for the real killer, and ends up accused of yet another murder. Further complicating her life is the new Sergeant of Detectives in town, William Wright, who is hot on her trail. Will Alex lose her daughter? Will she find herself in jail for murder? Or will she be able to track down a killer behind the scenes of the intricate world of gospel music.
Review excerpt of Tenors:
“The second Walters gospel mystery (see MURDER IN FOUR PART HARMONY) is an engaging cozy that provides the audience with an intriguing look at the music industry. The who-done-it is fun, but it is the characters, especially the heroine, who makes THE TROUBLE WITH TENORS worth singing its praises.”

Here is my response to the above esaay.
As a strong atheist and having debated this with agnostics many times I could not disagree more.
First of all, nobody can agree even on the definition of god.
In fact, gods do exist. Some are made of stone, some of crystal some of granite. Is that what you mean by gods? Well those gods can exist and do exist but they are useless.
As for the christian/Jewish/islamic god, it does not exist simply because that god is a logical impossibility.
Now, untill you define what kind of god can or cannot exist or is unknowable from a definition point of view, you are arguing an unintelligeable argument.
Let me make this simple. Nothing within existence can exist under the label "god" and nothing outside existence can exist as it is circular logic.
Therefore, all that exists is self sustaining. A self sustaining being within existence cannot be both in existence and the source of existence. It is either outside existence, which means in the mind of people alone, or within existence, in which case it is not a god but a product or byproduct of existence. In either case, god, as has been proposed by manking, IS a logical impossibility.
