lol @ 'methinks', how does that word survive if not for letters to the editor?

Do I have to read the article to dismiss the argument as infinitely regressive? Dawkins may inspire backlash amongst Creationists. The political Creationists are a backlash to the rise of secularism. The rise of secularism is a backlash to the persecution of reason, and so on.

So now it is suggested that Rationalists should lay down and allow the rise of mysticism, for fear of galvanizing mystic resolve? That's flawed thinking. Ayn Rand had a few gems, one of which is that a compromise between food and poison results in poison.
