I think you will find Steve that if you were to take the time to make a close study of Spengler's Nature--Knowledge essay, which is but about 40 pages and will be easily available at your local free library, it will help you realise that it is you who have rational thinking in suspended animation and are prone to the preposterous idea that your previous reading has equipped you to comment publicly on these matters. You don't even say what rational thinking actually is.
If it takes you a lot longer to read those 40 pages than you usually give to any other 40 pages then you needn't worry because that is quite normal. There is one born every minute who would have that problem.
If you find any faults in the essay I would be very glad if you would explain them to me.
Basically, you are irritated with being a megalopolitan rather than with the question of religion.
