67. Now that is one of the most illogical statements I have yet to see.
"We can observe, measure, and quantify MANY such actions (good or bad)." Many? How many? Surely it can be measured precisely. The fact is that only YOUR understanding of religious belief can be measured. To say that everything that exists is able to be validated by the epistemology of logical empiricism, is absolutely ridiculous and narrow-minded. Even the people who designed the method admitted that it could only be valid within the parameters of physical science.

You claimed that you didn't think that you could be taught anything that you hadn't already learned. And yet there are several upper level graduate courses that specifically address "other ways of knowing", e.g. (Just a sampling)

Your POV is very narrowly focused indeed, and out of necessity must remain so in order to maintain its credibility. To be certain, though, it is not the ONLY POV.
