    You can't hate what you don't know, right?

    But you can hate the fact you don't know it.

    Aye.

    I lurked a religion/philosophy forum as an agnostic for a long time, heated debates with theists of all walks have made me what I am today. Had I not slept with the lions I'd still be a cub.

    Hmm, I usually find that debating (heatedly) with Theists is rather counter-productive. I much prefer to debate with theists that are above all comfortable with their own beliefs and are able to entertain the notion of other possible beliefs, or lack of beliefs thereof without going into whatever inferior function they possess. And find out their reasons for why they believe. Not many theists (or atheist or even agnostics) can do that though.

    I could never be on a forum like you speak of and last very long.

    The Suspension of Disbelief and Critical Thinking

    Learning to think critically is like developing our thinking muscles - it's pleasurable to exercise them.

    Of course this is annoying for those who believe uncritically.

    This annoying for those who believe rather than suspend their disbelief.

    Belief is largely involuntary, while the suspension of disbelief is voluntary.

    And belief is largely for children or those with the minds of children, while the suspension of disbelief is for the mature mind.

    And of course the suspension of disbelief can't be achieved without first learning to think critically.

    Was that a pun meant to say men only think with their dicks ?

    If you taught a course on critical thinking at the local community college, I'd probably enroll for a laugh.

    Yeah, but how many times do you need to hear the same possibility screamed at you in every thread you go into, even if the thread is not about typology, and not really tailored to the discussion in question so that it integrates rationally into it? For a period of literally a few years? What if it was someone who constantly yelled, "Red meat will lead to heart attacks!!" in any thread regardless of the topic? The point might be generally true and not a bad thing to consider, but does that change the fact how ridiculous and pointless the delivery might be?

    I'm not a moron; tell me once or twice, and I'll work the idea into my thinking, if it makes sense. More than that, it just becomes white noise and headache-inducing.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
