In this thread about religion, there is an extensive series of answers that are based on patent falsehoods and misinformation. As a professional scholar of religion (who happens not to be in any sense religious), I don't see that I can stand by idly. This is the kind of nonsense I've spent 16 years teaching students to stop spouting.
The problem is, I don't see a good way to address such issues without either being exceedingly rude or simply playing "gotcha." What's needed -- and this is going to come up constantly when religion (among other things) gets discussed -- is a formal explication. But I can't see how that would work on this site.
EDIT: Is there perhaps a good way to use the "ask and answer your own question" thing? I don't entirely grasp that (and yes, I've read the SE blog entry).
