As long as the teology is not a pretense of representing the empirical
nature of the real world I have no objection to express. Its when I
see students of science spout what comes across as a lot of nonsense
(i.e. no empirical connection) that I feel it reasonable to comment. It
has nothing to do with lightening up. That would be like saying to you
"get a life". Its unecessary to make personal judgemets of this
kind when all that is required is to declare a different perspective or
philosophy - as you did in the main sentence above.
