Thank you so very much for your excellent post, dear YHAOS!

We are told that the ‘education establishment’ has determined Western Culture to be unworthy of passing on to the next generation. If that be true, as we must think it is, then the education establishment condemns itself, for it is a product of Western Civilization. In the some five thousand odd years of the cultural development of Western Civilization, it has been only in the last two centuries that we have witnessed the denial of that civilization by those who should be its staunchest defenders: the intellectual community. I find this to be utterly astonishing, but undeniably true, and confirmed beyond question by the failure of the intellectuals to defend Western Civilization against the stark evil of Islamic terrorism....

And in the midst of all this, the ‘Science Community’ muddles along, apparently oblivious to its peril.

I would that it were merely oblivious to the peril, but the statements of some scientists drip with contempt for philosophy and theology. They are biting the hand that feeds them.

...in their satanic arrogance. No good comes to anyone from this attitude, least of all to themselves. FWIW

Point taken. I simply wished, at this time, not to be overly harsh. Figured I had already kicked enough sleeping dogs. { 8^)
