Al, you should definitely post more. I really enjoy your posts even when I don't agree, which is fairly rare.
To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason, and whose philosophy consists in holding humanity in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead, or endeavoring to convert an atheist by scripture.
