98. I have no R/T opponent(s).....
...that's what the "Ignore Button" is for.

But in answer to you underlying question, there is nothing I, nor anyone else could ever say that would change a person's mind. If that person did abandon their previous ideas about life and religion's place within it to my own views, then they'd simply be adopting my POV. So they're not changing their mind with their own new ideas, but supplanting their ideas with mine. People can and do influece the direction or perspective of others. That can be helpful. But everyone must discover life and it's meaning for themselves. They can't use other's revelations in place of achieving their own. That's why we're here.

- And it's the only way it works.....
