    Hi MSH,
    Merry Christmas.
    A quickie response - beliefs don't stand alone, they are embedded in forms of life. If you attack
    the beliefs without engaging with the underlying forms of life then the beliefs will persist,
    because they are sustained by those forms. Similarly, unless you provide a different form of life to
    which a person can 'convert' then persuading them intellectually is nowhere near enough.

    I'll be able to pursue this more in a few days time. I feel another essay coming on.
