    Yup, you do not get a free ride by avoiding the consequences of your beliefs.

    Actually, it does. I think it was in this thread that I referred to Paul Ricour's "Critique and Conviction". This is where the issue lies.

    As I said, your problem not mine, and not a problem for a number of theologians who's academic credentials are beyond question, and widely regarded as among the best minds of the last century. John Polkinghorne is a physicist of world renown, and an Anglican vicar.

    LOL, I'll make sure the channels stay open.

    But the US has produced its own sane Christians ... it's just the noisy element tends to over-shadow the rest. Cardinal Avery Dulles was a pretty stand-out guy, "The Craft of Theology: From Symbol to System" is on my bookshelf. W Norris Clarke was a Jesuit theologian, author of "The One and the Many: A Contemporary Thomistic Metaphysics" which shows how Catholic theology keeps pace, if not sets the pace, on the question of being ... they are there ...

    Appeals to authority cannot represent an argument and stand alone

    I have yet to find a creationist who believes the same thing about God and men that you do, polycarp.
