    Bee -
    thanks for the site. A few comments on the speaker's statements (comes about 4-5 min in - as far as I've gotten):
    1) "I admit I have nothing that could possibly be called the religious feeling" - isn't this like asking someone that says "I am color blind and having no knowledge of colors" to explain to us painting?
    2) "I admit that concepts such as divine, sacred, transcendent have no intelligilbility to me" - should one then perhaps keep quite of what one does not know?

    - - I'll try for another 10 minutes later. . .
    yum

    Just like a Sociologist - can't get past the title to the first chapter without starting on the footnotes.
