115. yeah, more like that

I can sort of imagine what it is like to know from first principles that you don't believe something, and therefore not really have to know the specifics of what it is. That's how most creationists relate to evolution, I suppose: whatever the theory is, it's wrong, so it's perfectly reasonable not to try to figure it out -- just to ask questions and express incredulity about the answers. Even if the incredulity is misdirected in detail ("So, you seriously think you are descended from a monkey?" "Uh, no....", it's somehow on the Right Side.

But it makes me really uncomfortable. Sometimes I participate in these discussions because I learn interesting facts, but that isn't likely to happen in a thread like this. All I can learn from a discussion like this is that sometimes discussion is impossible.

Oh, wait. Maybe it's time to go outside. (But I think I'll wait for the sun to rise.)
