There’s another update coming to the Lindows.com unsubscribe saga, but first this:
I actually used the word “practical” in the same sentence as “Religous Studies” and “Philosophy”, and I was not under any outside influence, nor was I being sarcastic. What an odd experience.
The specific context was in reference to Huston Smith as follows:
He’s more into the practical aspects of religion so his background is in Religious Studies and Philosophy.
Speaking of Huston Smith, I have finally finished reading The World’s Religions and can unequivocally state that it is the best material I have ever seen about various major religions. Really amazingly well put together, and I really like his approach and enthusiasm for the topic. Very highly recommended reading for just about anyone.
