    On this forum there exist proofs and 'preponderance of evidence' showing a number of truths, such as homosexuality is a choice, we did NOT 'go to war cuz saddam had WMDs', 'Creation is more plausible than Evolution", etc...but even if you do NOT agree with my assessment of the data contained herein, has ANY argument you've read here changed your views on issues?

    Iran's proximity to obtaining nuclear weapons changed my mind about the war on terror. hope that helps.

    It's not easy to come to terms with realizing something you believe isn't 'truth'.

    I used to believe in, and practice 'rampant tounge-speaking' in church. As a kid, I was 'taught' to do this; very emotional activity - it sure FELT holy. After talking with friends and thru study, I had to realize what i had been doing - what i just KNEW was 'of God' was likely not. People's political views are akin to religious views; so many times, inspite of the evidence people will or will not believe just for the sake of keeping their world from crumbling. It can be scary.

    I've seen no proof of this. In fact, I believe it's inborn just as much as heterosexuality is for heterosexuals.

    Flame away.

    No hijack.

    I was questioning part of your premise.

    Quit the melodrama.

    :rolleyes:

    I KNEW somebody would 'bite' when I posted those words/examples...I was SURE somebody would be MORE concerned with the words, than the point I was making...I just knew-that-I-knew somebody, chomping at the bit, would pounce, and shift the focus of the thread from "THE POINT" to ideas expressed leading to said point. I didn't forsee that was you though - I actually kinda forgot about you. Have you been away? :)

    :D

    Typically part of any discussion are the ideas that lead to said "point".

    Forgot about me? That hurts.

    No, I'm just trying to get a life.
