Your reply is not worthy of further answer.
That should be, I'll "respond." To anyone who listens and thinks. I will not cast pearls before swine.
By all means, Richard. Why don't you just get what you've been aiming at all along done with?
Put on that blindfold.
Stick your index fingers in the super glue.
Put them in your ears.
Then jump up and down shouting "If I can't hear it or see it, it must not be there!"
It'll save us all a lot of trouble. You won't have to consciously avoid what you don't want to hear and those persons who attempt to make you hear it. And the rest of us will look at you, see an irrational raving loon who has blinded himself to the world, get a good laugh, and go on about our business.
Also visit post 29 if you've got the chance.
I responded to this article in a perfectly reasonable fashion by noting it was all recycled and asking Richard where the substance was. Then he shows up to post a rude single line non-response.
Needless to say, he's not speaking to me now =)
I guess that's what happens when the noble lie of Lincoln is violated.
"Such is the tale; is there any possibility of making our citizens believe in it? Not in the present generation, he replied; there is no way of accomplishing this; but their sons may be made to believe in the tale, and their sons' sons, and posterity after them. I see the difficulty, I replied; yet the fostering of such a belief will make them care more for the city and for one another." - Plato, The Republic, ca. 380 B.C.
