I rarely create new threads, but this I thought the frequenters of the PRSI should be interested in. Given Truth the Misinformed Believe Lies More For me the topics of fact and belief in the transcript of the show "Talk of the Nation" (and I'm not talking about the immigration issue they raise) really reflects what I see going on here in the PRSI. Often the discussions here rarely do anything to sway thinking or alter peoples opinions. Eventually the points, and counter points people try to make degrade into attacks on the person or go off on tangents that dilute the main point and weakening points and counter points to the main topic. The problem in their words: So maybe the problem lies with us? If we're not willing to challenge what we believe maybe we shouldn't read these threads here. Maybe if we aren't ready to have our beliefs challenged we shouldn't post here. If you're going to correct every single 'misguided' belief people have out there, save some time and sign up for a rubber room. And if you're not going to defend your belief or be willing to talk about counter arguments rationally then why post here at all? Just sayin'
