  1. A theist is someone who believes in a god or gods.  An atheist is someone who does not believe in a god or gods.  In the same way that not collecting stamps is not considered a hobby...not believing in supernatural beings is not a belief.  To insist otherwise is to commit an equivocation fallacy.  

    Four egg sample:  Do you believe in Santa Claus?  I do not but that is beside the point.  While I do not believe in Santa Claus I absolutely believe in what Santa represents.  And I'm okay with a word having more than one connotation.


  2. Considering how few irons a person is likely to have in their bag these days...the single length concept is close to being a misnomer.  I carry a 4 thru 9.  Granted the pigeon wedge used to be a 9 iron and the gap wedge use to be a pigeon wedge; but that isn't nearly as many clubs as it once was.  If all you are trying to do is cover 100 yards...why not do it with loft rather than length?


  3. Real golf, to me, is being 100+ yards out, on a windy day, standing in light, browned-out rough, the match all square, and wondering if I can bump a 9 iron to a back left pin location.  The temperature is hovering around 48 and the course is all but deserted.  My fellow competitor is closer; but mulling over a ticklish pitch over a green-side bunker.  Playing it safe seems an opportunity wasted and, with two holes to go, this shot could determine the match.  That, to me, is golf.
