For Love Of Argument
Somehow I get the feeling that EvC members of long standing actually get off on arguing the person rather than the position...if for no other reason than boredom.
Keep in mind, however, that these posts are read by others, and the argument provides no useful information---apart from your individual characters.
Percy, you do realize that the EvC archive is like a giant communal diary and/or blog. We have lost a few members and as I reread their old posts, it is all of the legacy that I can remember about them. Perhaps in a faith-based topic we can collectively show each other some forgiveness and tolerance for minor nitpicky details that are unimportant in the grand scheme of things. I am not taking sides...I value the uniqueness of each member here.
My only comment is to argue in love rather than spite and let the other guy have the last word once in awhile even if they are wrong in your opinion.
Watching this exchange is kinda amusing...I sense that you all love to argue.
One thing I respect is that nobody runs.

  • Please stay on topic for a thread. Open a new thread for new topics.
  • Points should be supported with evidence and reasoned argumentation.
  • The sincerely held beliefs of other members deserve your respect. Please keep discussion civil. Argue the position, not the person.
