Here and elsewhere you seem obsessed with consistency and certainty, as if those things actually existed here in messy ol' reality.

Besides, even relatively speaking, what theist has consistent beliefs and teachings? Untethered as religious faith is from a valid epistemological approach, it tends to put people all over the map.

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

I remember being that way when I was 17, but then I took a pharmaceutical arrow in the metaphysics and things made a lot less sense. Thumbsup

That's probably a good idea. Consider
I have an acquaintance who insists everything (including a human being) is either one way or the other - and he must be able to figure it out and categorize it.
He also insists he's "old" because he's 38. Dodgy

If I could get him to drop acid, maybe he would loosen up the sphincter and start thinking in a more jaded adult manner. Shy

No. Consistency is important. I don't care about "messy reality". This isn't reality. This is a pragmatic perception of reality as it pertains to living life. This is irrelevant in the search for truth.
