Subject: RE: BS: Reflections on Religion and Atheism
Don't put words in my mouth, please Jack. I didn't suggest he 'promoted' anything; simply that the analogies he chose to illustrate the point he was obviously intending to promote were counter-productively flawed and illogical and unconvincing ones.
And you do no favours to him or to yourself or to your argument by trying to equate his explicitly tendentiously discursive writings with his explicitly fictitious ones. Any child over the age of not-very knows the difference between 'a true book' and 'a story book'. Don't you think the same person should be allowed to write both? Just in case we might think that H G Wells, say, who wrote sociological essays and school science textbooks, had actually also invented a working time machine while he was invisible?
