I've spent the day dealing with the real world; dust, sun, wind, hard dirt, tractors and other loud noises. I don't think this is a good time to deal with the squishy subjects.

I'm a fan of your posts, C-man, but I wouldn't call theology (or art, philosophy, etc.) 'squishy'. Learning is a fine cuisine - science supplies the raw calories, but you need flavor, too. (Just so you long as one remembers that eating too much tasty food in lieu of good nutrition will kill you.) : )

Thanks for the reminder, and the nice compliment. Both are much appreciated.

As regards to your comment, "eating too much tasty food in lieu of good nutrition will kill you" -- I would only suggest that basic science is the "good nutrition" while philosophy and the other topics, about which folks have been arguing for 2500+ years with little agreement on methods, let alone results, are the tasty foods.

Science provides the staples, philosophy and the other of what I call "squishy" subjects are the desert: nice, if you can afford them.
