They know nothing about religion TalkReason , Aug 28, 2006
Dear David C:

Thank you for your letter. Please note that posting it, we took the liberty of removing the profanity in the title provided by you. If you intend to submit more letters to Talk Reason, please avoid such expressions.

Regarding your critique of Dr. Hall's and Lucia Hall's post wherein you disparage their article for the absence of a discussion of philosophy of religion and of some other matters, you are right: they indeed do not delve into all those topics you listed. Likewise, they do not discuss how to grow oranges, or the validity of Perelman's proof of Poincare's conjecture, or the prospects of a 3rd world war. It hardly makes their argument related to the actual subject of their discourse a failure. Although it is your privilege to form any opinion of the Halls' article, your clearly supercilious approach to their piece, wherein you seem to be mostly concerned with showing your erudition rather than addressing the specific points which the Halls do discuss, hardly makes your opinion on that particular matter more convincing.

Best wishes,

Talk Reason
