From David Topper:

Re: Angry God, angry people (Feb. 28): you used an image from Michelangelo’s Sistine Ceiling as an example of an angry God. But the specific image from the chapel is of God creating the Sun and planets, and hence his stern look is NOT of anger but of determinism and the sheer work required to make and direct these celestial objects to their appointed places and paths in space. In short, your have made a poor choice of an image accompanying your article.
