    At the same time, I have a feeling that the shallow
    and curt remarks made by naturalist a-theologians
    reek of the same sin of pride and snobbery:
    particularly those who castigate philosophers (who
    in effect _developed_ their precious algorithm of
    epistemology). Unfortunately, I cannot think of any
    _prominent_ Christians have set a clearly *better*
    example, so we (Christians) have clearly fallen short
    of obedience to the Word.

    It seems real philosophy is even harder to grasp and
    integrate than even a scientific enterprise as complex
    and diverse as biology.

    By Grace we proceed,

    We have been given two ears and but a single mouth,
    in order that we may hear more and talk less.
