Mindless and Meanspirited Screed

Here is an article called "Beware the Yoga Demon! The Christian Right’s fear of self-realization and spirituality," by Mel Seesholtz, Ph.D., that takes on www.TrueU.org where many other philosophers and apologists and I have posted thoughtful articles. The author commits so many logical fallacies and is so unpleasant, one doesn't know where to begin. So, maybe you, my dear readers, would like to make a few comments.

Another foaming-at-the-mouth English professor speaks out! Who reads this kind of stuff (except for laughs)? It's almost enough to make me ask what it would take for me to get an office at TrueU, just so I can be sure to be on the other side from the crazy self-anointed Christian-bashers ...

Great gobs of vertiginous remonstrations batman! It's almost like God Who Was Not There Part II....

I am particularly fond of his method of emphasis: quotation marks. Interesting? Troubling? Hmmm. My eyebrow is raised in a "critical" manner.

I had no idea that you are a "middleman profiteer." Thus it turns out that your Gremlin (do you still have it?) is merely a front for your egregious wealth!

I was entertained by the gentleman's objective declaration that religion is inherently subjective, and therefore, uncapable of objective analysis.
