A rather blunt, stupid man, unable to make sense of any of the great philosophers, decides it is because they are all irrationally worshiped.
UPDATE: I am not really being just to Stove in calling him stupid. He can be very clever at times. What is really going on is that he is completely unwilling to try to enter into the thought of any philosopher whose ideas upset his prejudices. And this unwillingness makes him stupid when discussing any such philosopher's ideas.
