You cannot close your eyes protesting "No, no, I want to keep my belief that he is on site!".

    So if you cannot choose what your beliefs are - if your beliefs change through no choice of your own - then the only way for you to keep your current stock of beliefs would be to limit your exposure to any impressions, argument or evidence that might change them.

    So saying "I am entitled to my own opinion" can only mean you are invoking a right to close your eye's, ears and all the rest to the world around you. And, well, hey, you might indeed have that privilege - but then you are forfeiting your right to comment on that same world around you given that you have thereby professed to be deliberately ignorant of it.

    Invoking the said right is in fact an overt announcement and confession of ones own preference for ignorance - even if often unwitting.
    I am sorry to say...

    This logic is SOOOO full of homes... it would make swiss cheese look solid.

    I have spent an evening once a month with the local Mensan chapter for over a decade... They are about as 'brainiac' as they come...
    Even those folks would say this is a crock of POO..

    Sorry... enlightenment needs electricity... and this line of reasoning is definitely GROUNDED.

    I think we do have rights as persons, God given rights, our opinions among those rights. Our national constitution included a 'bill of rights' to preserve that right legally whether one believes in God or not. Greatest legal document since the Magna Carta, it basically gives a man freedom. Nobody should ever undermine that, not ever.

    And at the end of the day (or nite)... more has been accomplished than sitting around dreaming about unreality... <grin>

    You wont get a response from the mensan arguing the point. You might get a wisecrack... or the old standby..."I answered your question but you didnt understand my response"... or he will say he has better things to do then hang around in here..... till the thread dies...

    or of course he could just put you on ignore..... like Im sure all mensans do when they get backed into a corner.

    I hope you aren't wedded to that belief hurtinhvac, because I'm going to have to disabuse you of it.

    I personally believe that the original post was one of the best that I've read on this forum.

    Corny, you seem to be really bothered that G has you on ignore. You still troll his threads and make posts like this. Pull yourself together man, not everyone wants to hear or read your ridiculous incoherent liberal babble.

    There, you see?

    Another belief based on false assumption.

    My ancestry is Scott, Irish and British, with a touch, so I'm told, of Maori.

    All immigrants, none sent at the monarch of the days pleasure.

    Mind you, most Australians who can trace their ancestry back to a transportee do so with pride.

    We're a perverse bunch of bastards like that.
