This is a blog to discuss philosophy, chess, politics,
C. S. Lewis, or whatever it is that I'm in the mood to discuss.
I'd recommend this fellow read "Planet Narnia" by Michael Ward. Most of his complaints about 'moral incoherence' should be answered. Aside from not understanding Tolkien either (failing to grasp Arwen and Aragorn... I doubt he's ever read the Silmarillion), the only point worth discussing is the similarity between Christ and Aslan, and since Aslan doesn't have the 'fully God'/'fully Man' theological backing, it is easier to find faults in logic (morality?). But again, he doesn't really understand what Lewis was getting at. (A shorter alternative is to read Lewis's "On Stories" essay). -SK
Actually, I'll give him a break since Ward's book (which was ground breaking) wasn't published till 2008. -SK
