I was admiring the fact that Lark was finally showing some respect for SCHOLARSHIP.
You know Barry, good scholarship can actually occur outside of your little world. If the term "good scholarship" is only ascribed to that work which supports a very narrow ideal, both the "good" and the "scholarship" are a mite suspect.
Well, as a communist, I am STRONGLY against any spirtualism---whether or not it supports socialistic conclusions.
BUT I admire any effort to back up one's position with well-documented citations (which is what Lark---who usually derogates 'hallowed bibles' of all stripes---did for once.
You, on the hand, have NEVER presented ANY citations other than the anecdotes that live in your own head...
