Brian
Someone once told me that it was in the range of 30,000.
I'm afraid I can't site a ref. for that though.
I say engage the mighty google. That should get you nearer your answer.

Sorry, I don't know where else to put this - I replied in Dr. Meaden's Origins of Religions thread, and then he replied to me, which I read briefly over the weekend. I've come to re-read what he said, and try to reply, but I cannot find the thread at all. Can anyone help? What am I doing incorrectly? Thanks! c.

I seek ontological rationality in every aspect of conscious existence.

"Existence is Identity, Consciousness is Identification."

"Existence is not a product of a supernatural dimension, or of anything else. There is nothing antecedent to existence, nothing apart from it—and no alternative to it."
Quote to me from Tom Clark of Center for Naturalism http://www.centerfornaturalism.org/: "It would be nice if all Rand’s acolytes examined her philosophy as assiduously as do you, ending up with more nuanced conclusions about the legitimacy of compassion and limits of egoism."
Speaking of origins, see my definition of "metaphysical naturalism" at http://freeassemblage.blogspot.com/2008/08/academys-strong-definition-of_03.html
