Judy, big storm happening now. Hopefully power will continue, lightening won't strike, etc. Anyway, when I read your saying that done right, religion is *hard* I'm reminded of one of my favorite authors, Susan Howatch and her series of novels set in the Church of England, often with a high ranking clergyman as protagonist, undergoing a spiritual crisis and usually a woman is involved. Great stuff and there's always at least one character who expresses the same opinion that you do. A few of the characters span the entire series and the later novels feature offspring of a few at least three of them.
Replying to another post: In the article that salyavin posted, Dennet was referred to as a philosopher. Is he a scientist as well? I remember something about Darwinism but I thought maybe that was a hobby. ________________________________ From: authfriend <authfri...@yahoo.com> To: FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com Sent: Sunday, June 23, 2013 5:02 PM Subject: [FairfieldLife] Re: Did the Earth move for you? --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, "salyavin808" <fintlewoodlewix@...> wrote: > > --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, "PaliGap" <compost1uk@> wrote: snip Many thoughtful religionists would tell you that if comfort is what you're looking for in your religion, you're doing it wrong. Done right, religion is *hard*. Those aren't the folks Dawkins tends to want to talk to. And they could do a better job of putting lazy religionists on the hot seat than Dawkins could ever manage. > What do you think Feser etc would contribute to one of these > shows other than a more technical language?

What is this "evidence" you seem to think should be forthcoming from religionists? That's a notion Feser would disabuse you of right quick.
