Epeeist - thanks for drawing my attention to your comments. Yep, the term "wordlview" does appear to be a fundies' effort at postmodernism. It's got no substance whatsoever. The older term which it really means is ideology. Most people are not ideologues. We have very individualistic understandings of the world which reflect our differing experiences and knowledge and the debates, contradictions, uncertainties, knowledge, culture, society and times we live in.

As I have long said, the fundies like LSwanson are ideologues, basically no different from Maoists, Stalinists, Trotskyists, Fascists or whatever. They are all underneath birds of a feather schreeching to the same tune. You only have to look at the Religious Right in the USA to get the message.

In all the years I've been handling fundies in "debate" I've never ever heard one of them say "I don't know".

Nor has one ever addressed the question I put to LSwanson.

LSwanson is clearly also a fundie "side stepper" well practised in the fundie shuffle.
