I am obviously a positivist of some sort. I would not take
offense at that label even if it had been directed at me.
The positivists of the 1930s were some very smart dudes! I
would be delighted if someone would include me in their
company. :-)

But I would disagree that it is deism, whether of Locke or
Descartes. The apostle Thomas most definitely wanted
evidence of the resurrection. He was my kinda fellow, and
I doubt that he was unbiblical in that approach.
