Good stuff. Thanks.

Of course, Hart wins. He always does, although sometimes only in his mind.

Haha, I think both Hart and Feser are hard headed and too smart for their own good. Chances are they will continue to talk past one another without any concession.

Feser's hardheadedness is one of the things I love about him.
"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.
