@Novaline My goal when debating/arguing, is not to convince my opponent. It's to convince anyone who may be reading, aka the audience. I will respond to them to further my position and improve my chances of convincing anyone else who may be reading. So it really does not matter to me if I convince them or not.
I don't post much anymore because I found I had better things to do with my time than argue with people who have no desire to be open to world views different than their own. But I still lurk a lot and while I don't always agree with you, your posts are normally well thought out, constructive, and eloquent. So kudos.
