I have an idea where you can stuff that list such that it will feel
right at home.
Exactly! The temptation that folks fall prey to is the need to justify
everything, to prove everything, to be RIGHT!
This is what leads to long, drawn out arguments that go on forever and go
nowhere, but no one is persuaded and no one really cares except the people who
get sucked into them.
When I first got on the various Theos lists I fell into that trap a lot and
I would engage in debate with fists and feet flailing and all that ever was
accomplished was the raising of blood pressure.
Oh, it felt good to smash a point home, but in the end it did not matter.
It certainly did not improve my life any nor, I suspect, did it make anyone
change their minds about much of anything.
