Yet another exchange with Nathan Cofnas

Nathan Cofnas has replied to my critique of his comments on Ed Dutton (see list of my three previous exchanges with Cofnas in the References section; I realize this is getting confusing).

There is nothing new here. Again, there is the tendency to ignore critical passages of Culture of Critique (CofC) as well as my previous replies. And once again, as throughout this exchange, he fails to grasp the theoretical structure of CofC. As a result, his attempts at refutation typically consist of points that, even when true (e.g., contemporary rates of Jewish intermarriage are quite high), are irrelevant to a proper critique of CofC. There is indeed a strong empirical basis to CofC. But to refute it, fundamentally one would have to dispute the Jewish identifications and sense of pursuing Jewish interests among the key figures.
