    Certainly *our* conversations are better suited to the latter, but if - as I
    believe Horse once said - the MoQ requires robust criticism if it is to grow
    and develop as a [metaphysics/final vocabulary/weltanschaaung/new
    religion/delete or replace as appropriate] then a sustained engagement with
    another school of thought is surely of some use. If I ever get around to it,
    I'll write something substantial about the MoQ and Christianity, giving a
    proper, 'formal', articulation of my perspective, deriving from the
    Sophocles not Socrates thread. But it'll be a while away yet.
