I just reread this and came upon this. Brad ... tsk tsk. All the Deconstructionism you've talked about in the past, and you haven't learned that such a powerful philosophical solvent as relativism won't stop at religious language? ;-) You're also saying that "by definiton" (who's definition?) religion has no ontological reference (history, experience, evidentiality). But that is simply ignoring that there can be, and are, different kinds of religions. It's all too general.
It's good to hear your voice (does that make sense?). But, um, deconstruction is about being rational, more rational than everyday life should be (quotidian). You say I'm being to general, but I'm not. I have a copy of the Koran. I have a copy of the Bible. I have read the Bible. Seriously. I have skimmed the Koran -- not enough, I assure you.
Why is any of this important?
Well, to me, it's important because I don't want to kill you, I don't want to kill Ess, I don't want to kill people who disagree with me.
And from that point we begin.
