Burgy, Burgy! You snipe at my conclusion by stating only one line (I
like to think of that as a "Jimbo".), ignore the reasons for that
conclusion, and then say that I should give serious consideration to
your viewpoint. I note that you offer no comments about what is wrong
with what I have said. Moreover, I could take your words and reverse the
roles and say exactly the same thing about your belief system.
Ahh the flaws of human reasoning!
I once heard Henry Kissinger speak about a then existing problem. His
analysis was so simple and so clearly correct, once stated, that you had
to marvel at 2 things: His intelligence (on that subject) and our
stupidity. It made me once more realize how poorly we humans reason.
Take all of us on this list. Everyone disagrees with everyone else on
how to evaluate the facts before us and yet we all think that we are
right ----- despite the fact that our views are mostly incompatible with
each other. A consensus will never be reached -- Of that we can be
certain. I guess we are all in it for the "fight". :-)
Thank heaven we have a forgiving God!
