When I think I know something...I get to prove it. Then I have learned I do or do not know that I'm correct. If in my argument/ discourse I discover I am incorrect...I learn; get corrected and place it to test.
For example, because of Nesai I have learned that not all libertines are opposed to capitalism and America. This is good. Because of her I have a much more thorough knowledge about the true origins of Palestinians; Arabs; Jews; there respective ideologies and which ones are really effective; why I believe which ones are dangerous; their contributions and detractions to civilization and now because I am well knowledgeable..better than I was...I no longer need to argue with her. (sigh) But because of her I was obliged to prove to myself ..not her...what was what. I became satisfied. Thanks neai, even though your usually wrong.
Because of her I learned of circular arguments. Because of ninor I learned that two true precepts prove a conclusion true and that their is good propaganda and bad propaganda...even though he is a bit whacked. I also found out more about Plato and Socrates because of him...go figure.
Mealy taught me not to hate Jews. Jaack taught me that acerbated wit with a senile sense of humor ratchets a point square to the throat...I love it; and I have seen some here that are steady heads with primo convictions. The kinda stuff hat crushes evil and ignorance. I have enjoyed commies with wonderful word smithering gifts as only evutch can do...and I found out that SRO; Chiselray; Bloodstone and E-traveller are good people. I even have learned that inja has a balanced spiritual outlook...in spite of her nessaiish political views...and I have learned that nepotism isn't necessarily a bad policy. I have learned there is a lot of tolerance here...good for me beings as how I spaz about on occasions.
In the process I might get heated up and rip your face off...but I don't mean any harm by it. The truth is we are all trying to ascertain our constitutional position in the Universe of Life, ye ole al ma mater, so we can know we are real and alive and filled w/ purpose...except for those that are worthless.
..and no one really is. Even evil toads teach.
The ultimate desire for me here is to affirm my constitutional position as an effective force in my own life, and that can't be done unless I learn and use True info. I pretty well do that most places. This forum is a great venue for learning if one is not too lazy to make objective
searches. The arguments put you to the test. We also get to test out life philosophies for strengths and weaknesses. That's why we are here...and to satisfy curiosity.
Damn good question pandasex.
