  1. Not so impressed that you want to share an example with us.

    An example of the subtlety of my own thought would be that I would summarize Islam as a synthesis of OT Judaism with paganism.

    The priestly rituals of the OT being replaced with the pagan rituals of Mohammed’s day.

    Is that not subtle even if I say so myself?

  2. I do admire the prodigious research of Ibn Taymiyyah and his singleminded dedication to accumulating ever-expanding reservoirs of genuine knowledge. I think Paul Williams can be an Anglican mini Ibn Taymiyyah or (Ibn Catherine).

    Knowledge is beautiful.
