  •  The Creator made us. Some of us think (5+ / 0-)

    they can imitate the creator by destroying what He made and then re-creating a better model. Because, you know, what the Creator made was fatally flawed, so it's up to man to do a better job. That's entirely logical to those of us whose primary mode is imitation and repetition. If the results are worse than the original, that's probably because some of us humans don't see too good. Imitation is rarely better than the original.

      a most touching post: a person of liberal leanings and a friend of conservative leanings, discussing an issue in which they used exactly the same words as they had used in discussing a different issue, previously.

      Except this time the liberal-leaning interlocutor found the words of the argument that the conservative normally employed appropriate, and vice versa. The  pair were discussing privately owned firearms -- and the liberal was using exactly the same argument the conservative normally used in opposing abortion.

      Sensible people can come to sensible agreement.
      People who refuse to see that there are points of view other than their own, often cannot reach agreement with others at all.
