to refute, but not in a way that anyone actually holds to. IOW, Rand
convincingly and with great rhetorical zeal refutes a straw man.
Just for good measure I dug out one of my old papers on Original Sin, and
none of the views I found then matched Rand. Rand's argument would seem
very compelling if I had no knowledge of Christian theology... it might
even convince me to be an Objectivist again.
I was going to post a response but Kevin beat me to it... I was too busy
playing EVE Online... sorry :) Space capitalism is a lot more fun than
watching the United States being nationalized.
