If the author had just said this…

“Resolve to understand that any organized religion that has the gall to tell you that it has all the answers or even knows most of the questions is gravely to be considered dangerous and apocryphal and should be shunned like bad porn and Christina Aguilera.”

…I would agree wholeheartedly. Any religion that does not make generous allowance for mystery is stupid. But of course, the author isn’t really offended that organized religion claims to have certainty about *all* the answers. He is offended that it claims to have any certainty at all. And, like all such sophomore philosophers, he is absolutely certain that he’s right. The J school meat processing labs seem to Darwinianly select for the irony-impaired.
