No, you wouldn’t know your comment was pertinent, just as an impertinent non-native English-speaker wouldn’t know he’s being impertinent by saying a highly-educated native English-speaker writes in poor English. That’s called the Dunning-Kruger effect.

It’s ironic that someone who touts Hinduism would have so little self-awareness.

I see that whereas you don’t write any articles on Medium, you think yourself well-positioned to tell me how I should have written my article (how I should have added “a sentence or two” to specify that I’m talking about Western theism, even though theism—as opposed to polytheism or mysticism—is already practically a Western concept and synonymous with monotheism; the first sentence implies I’m talking about a creator deity; and I’m writing in English to a mostly English-speaking, Western audience). More impertinence.

I see also from some of your other comments that you appear to believe Adam and Eve were historical persons and that Jesus studied in India. So someone who’s so theologically naïve, ignorant of history, and susceptible to conspiratorial thinking deems himself likewise well-positioned to criticize various articles for upholding wrong opinions on religion. More Dunning-Kruger effect. More impertinence.

Knowledge condemns. Art redeems. I learned that as an artistic writer who did a doctorate in philosophy. We should try to see the dark comedy in all things.
