Susan,

Both your opening posts for a new thread and the bulk of your comments represent a model for GHMB participation. You introduce a topic with some analysis and sense of direction--and follow with comments that mostly stay on topic. You do insert a great deal more about yourself than most, but it almost always allows other discussants needed background and context.

You often choose difficult but interesting topics for discussion. The reminder is that these topics require background that goes well beyond the casual reading of popular sources. You neither have the training nor the experience in critical areas of knowledge--philosophy/theology and experimental science. Because of your further limited access to internet sources, you have fallen back on various board communications as your only source of knowledge. That can further distort already weak foundations.

This creates big problems. You don't seem to realize it, but those who have studied theology would not consider you knowledgeable enough to call yourself an atheist. Likewise, those who study and practice science would not recognize your characterizations of scientific methods--nor would they consider them support for any personal philosophies.

Ray
