That is my point. But there are larger implications. If you don't understand the grounding in Hume or Russell, then it's hard to understand exactly how the arguments work. Context, historical and philosophical, matters.

2) I'm thoroughly impressed, after reading several of your posts on religion and philosophy, at your intelligence and base knowledge on the subject. I'd resigned myself to debating Mormons I work with on philosophical arguments of religion. Thank you.
You're more than welcome.
