It seems to me that the best way to determine right and wrong, truth and hype, black and white, plus and minus, etc.
is to engage in dichotomies on the MESSAGES in play, in a rational, intelligent, moral way,
rather than babble, parrot, use logical fallacies and attempt to make MESSENGERS the issue.
As a true seeker of wisdom and truth, I am always pleased when anyone PROVES me wrong,
as I learn something when PROVED wrong,
but when anyone DECLARES me wrong, or parrots convention wisdom, useless URLs and insults,
all I learn is who is a cultist of some kind, or low class, ignorant and not too bright,
and cluttering my mind and files with a list of people like this, is of little value to me.
Is it "wrong" to ask people who pretend to possess powerful, esoteric knowledge and great abilities, to PROVE it?
