I tumbled this post from Jeff, as you can see in my recently improved sidebar, but I have to blog about the Dabney quotes. They remind me of the insanity that results from trying to argue with one’s child about various fashion/music/culture choices by a form of alleged presuppositionalism. If it means that much to you, just forbid it. Don’t torment a growing mind by talking about how that hairstyle is really based on pagan creation-from-ultimat-chaos myths. If you need to interfere (and there is often wisdom in not doing so) then just use authority. Don’t torture logic.
