"My dad always had a well-honed BS detector and an attitude of derision for "flakes" and all things "touchy-feely", which I inherited. Nonetheless, he is a staunch believer, if not especially religious, and his skepticism is…"

Stutz replied to Bo Fowler's discussion 'A new argument against God?'
"This is a valid and important point to make, and one that we don't articulate often enough. However, the understanding is that, when talking about what a jerk god is, we are showing that the God portrayed in the bible is self-contradictory. So…"
