I'm trying to come up with a clever category for all the instances of, "good grief, could the irony be any more obvious?!" coming out of the "Egalitarian" camp these days. It's running thick and deep in some spots around the internet. This morning, I caught this from one such blog:
"Epistemology without history is vanity."
You'd think that one would stimulate a Gibbs-like slap to the back of his own head, wouldn't you?
But no. Having had their "sense of humour" surgically removed along with the "could this be any more obvious?" assessment module, I think they are truly ushering us into what has elsewhere been called, "The Post-Ironic Age".
Just in case someone is missing the point here -- Just about ANYTHING without history is vanity. Especially, especially, most clearly especially THEOLOGY.
