Another insightful observation, Seefan.


Is that all you can offer? No quote to cite? No one else's mind that you can pilfer a thought from?


You changing your ways? 



Nothing wrong with quotes!  I guess it's better to give my own thoughts without giving quotes than always saying "that's juvenile/nonsense/assumptions/unjustified/insupportable claims/beliefs!  The evidence tells us otherwise ..." without quotes to back it up or evidence presented ... Wink

Today the one overriding need is unity and harmony among the beloved of the Lord, for they should have among them but one heart and soul and should, so far as in them lieth, unitedly withstand the hostility of all the peoples of the world ... (Baha'i Writings)

You're right, there's nothing wrong with quotes unless they are they are advanced as substitutions for thought and evidence.


And tell me, Seefan, do you not think that beliefs advanced in a public forum should supported by evidence?

That's "should 'be' supported ..." Wink


Depends on one's definition of evidence.  Not everything is a materialistic proof ...

I'm not necessarily talking about "proof", Seefan, which is something largely restricted to the field of mathematics, but rather probabilities.


And what do you mean by "one's definition of evidence"? Or, if you prefer, what is the nature of your epistemology?
