Thank you for your valuable feedback. Unfortunately, I can't see the point of reiterating arguments others have already made quite well and relatively briefly. Summarizing them would add nothing and would detract much. I generally try to provide some sort of basis for my positions, but I find responding substantively to Fodor to be the equivalent to responding substantively to ID proponents. So call me smug. Maybe even objectionable. Defensive and self-serving require a little explanation, though, I think.
Is your irritation with my post perhaps induced more by the fact that I didn't make any claims you can argue with? BTW, where is it that you are "complaining about the same in Fodor?"
