His Bobbiness, Bob From Brockley has generously forgiven me for the broccolian ruminations induced by his blog name. It is no more than I would expect, from a Bob. If you know a person named Jesus, you form certain expectations of that person, don't you?
I'm not sure Bob knows that there is an entire religious edifice constructed about his name.
It is the Church of the Bob.
It is the church that accepts only heretics, outsiders, true dissenters, and anyone who can think for himself. Or herself. If you are a thinker whose position subscribes on all points to a certain doctrine, you are not welcome at our church. In fact, you are considered a heretic! We are very intolerant of a person who is an all-point conformist. It is enough that when subscribing to cable television service, I have to pay for all the channels that come with the package deal, even when I only watch the movie channel. Disciplines, systems of thought, should not act, or be treated, as, quantum physics, that is, they are not indivisible entities.
I have long been a subscriber to the doctrine of the Bob. Here is why:
The Church of Bob is in favour of knowledge. The Church of Bob is in favour of intelligence [and] critical thinking.
The Church of Bob fights:
Julecifer, whose motto is: Believe me, because I sound authoritative. (Need we say more?)
How? By insisting: "Show me the evidence!"
