Where exactly does he currently reside?
Dhamma and Irrationality: An explanation of the fundamentally irrational nature of spirituality in general, and the Buddhist path in particular, and thus of how "reason" is of very limited value on the path to Awakening. (This article was inspired by the author's dealings with two Buddhist intellectuals who insisted that Buddhism has to "make perfect sense.")
It may seem from the foregoing that I am betraying my own position by attempting to use discursive reasoning to bash the validity of discursive reasoning; but as this essay is directed particularly towards silly Buddhist intellectuals and dogmatic types who fondly cherish the belief that true Dhamma can be conceived rationalistically, it is expedient for me to speak their own language.
