I'm proud. His hippie friends are all on there telling him not to waste his time with such discredited nonsense, bla bla bla. He told them he is going into it with an open mind.
I don't think I sold him on blogging the experience, though. Too bad as he has serious intellectual chops. He'll be intellectually fair but has a lifetime of child-of-the 1960's, artist, academic, married to a minister, &c. in opposition.
If he really is intellectually fair, none of that other stuff will matter. RAHQOTD fodder!!
Intellectually fair is insuffcient. Rationality is required!
