A book on American Theologians including.....me????

I thought I was a Christian philosopher, not a theologian.

I didn't know John Haggee counted as a theologian either.

I think you can count yourself as one. You do enough talking about Calviminian issues to qualify in the sense of being one who does theology in at least a somewhat professional fashion.

That has to be the oddest assortment of personalities I've ever seen...especially to be chosen as "American Theologians".

I think somebody needs to start reigning in these "Book Editors" before we start seeing things like "Where's Plato?" picture books and "Grand Theft Auto IV and Philosophy". I think somebody needs to tell them to lay off on the drugs....that they're only corrupting their own ability to properly "edit".

I mean...when I was a kid, and my Dad saw me engaging in those kinds of editorial shenanigans.....he would not hesitate to reach straight for his belt. I wouldn't sit for days. And I'd be grounded too.

I finally came to realize that I needed to lay off on the "Starbursts", "Snickers" and "Cola Sodas". I needed to get my thinking straight. I was 10 years old and had my whole life in front of me.

Word to the wise:

Don't shop at "Barnes and Noble". There's nothing "noble" about that company. Also, let's encourage Publishing companies to hire competent staff members.

Were you on an ego surfari when you found this link?

I look for people who are replying to me.

Steven said...

Anyone you think come close to refuting your argument yet?

Victor Reppert said...

Not really. I don't know that we're going to get some fabulous "refutation" on most philosophical debates. I think my views have been holding up reasonably well.

Gregory said...

Ditto.

I'd also like to hear Victor's take on Christopher Nolan's new film "Inception". I'm positive that there will be some debate on the meaning and significance of the film.

Anyway, I'm going to see it this weekend. And I'm sure that I'll have plenty of thoughtful "opinions" about it; I'm guessing everyone else will as well.
