    I noticed being nice to creationists has never accomplished anything, for the same reason being nice to a terrorist who wants to kill you won’t accomplish anything. I prefer to tell the creationist retards to keep their breathtaking stupidity out of our schools or else they will be taken to court.Report

    Well said, Mark.

    So, the example of essentially theocratic arguments doesn’t refute what I said at all – it is instead a good example of choosing the intellectually lazy approach to ideology over the healthy, but intellectually challenging approach.

    Right on the money. Is this, in a sense, a question of simply taking the high road in all debates, arguments etc.? When faced with pure partisanship, or thoughtless ideology, one must simply take the Zen approach? Find the way to maneuver the conflict by doing the least harm, and making the most strides forward?

    So much to consider…Report

  3. E.D. – Exactly. And if you could find a good, concise explanation as to how to take that road, I’d be forever in your debt.Report
