Actually, both Socrates and Aristotle seem to have a "christian" theme in their works, despite being pagans.
I'm not understanding this. I'm not exactly a scholar, but I don't remember Aristotle saying anything about immaculate conception of a demi-god or how faith >> reason. Quite the opposite really.

It has nothing to do with outright mentioning such things. Rather, the general theme, concepts and basis for and in his works. My brain is currently on overload with the ancient philosophers; I have to reread and read all their works for a finals exam so I apologize if I wasn't specific enough. :)

As I read between the lines I gather you are a Marine who is currently in an academic environment. Please tell me you write your papers with a crayon.

Not to distract from this delightful thread drift. But, I just finished The Coldest Winter by David Halberstam. Fantastic account of the forgotten war, Korea. Also a good reminder of what a monumental asshole Douglas Macarthur was (and how he's culpable for many, many KIA during that war).

Agreed. Halberstam wrote an absolutely brilliant trilogy that’s indispensable for warfighters of our generation and unfortunately under-appreciated - The Coldest WInter, The Best and the Brightest, and War in a Time of Peace. Explains how the Boomers grew up in, fought, and lost their wars. I only wish Halberstam was still around to write about Afghanistan.

There are some ISCs in my unit who went to A- and C-school with ISCS Kent, and they all had amazing things to say about her. I think there's a movement to get a ship named after Senior Chief Kent; I'll hit them up and paste details here if anyone's interested in supporting it.
