    Are they willing to confirm that?

    Yea so what? That’s just pointing out a limitation of engineers. Logic is a nice tool but it’s no substitute for thinking. Much of nature is illogical and counterintuitive. Quantum mechanics is illogical. So is relativity and try finding logic in biological cascade systems like compliment, blood clotting or cellular metabolism. Good luck with that one. Point being that logic is limited if it leads you to an incorrect conclusion.

    Actually, it's pointing out a limitation of Rune.

    Good point. He's certainly grown up in girth.

    That's why they are called the illiberal Left. Go off message even slightly and they go batshit crazy.

    The left has bastardized the term liberal as it applies to politics . They're leftist authoritarians as was pointed out in another thread. There's nothing remotely liberal about them.
    I'm a liberal.

    Can't say that I blame them.

    I'm 71 and should be chilling, but instead, all of my baby-boomer, 60's kid issues are burning me up.

    The hardest debates are always with other progressive liberals.

    Debate requires stipulation.

    If two people want a similar kind of world, they might reasonably debate the means to get there.
    They may get passionate about their views.

    Today's conservatives and liberals have absolutely nothing to debate.
    They want to live in totally different worlds.
    If you want totally different things, there's nothing to debate.
    It's us and them, not right and wrong. There's no way to conclude whether chocolate or strawberry ice cream is better. You just go for the one that you want.
    We're no longer political opponents; now we're ideological enemies.

    Moderation is for the consumption of adult beverages. Politics are about passion. In a polarized society, the energy is at the poles. Centrism is now irrelevant.

    The male anatomy is not designed to be comfortable straddling a fence.

    But now, it's worse than ever. I don't speak to people who've been friends for forty or fifty years. I have cousins who are dead to me. Five fellow retirees and I have had a standing breakfast date, once a month, since we retired more than a decade ago. Politics have recently broken it up.

    I'm not an Evangelical Christian. I don't believe in salvation by faith alone. That's an excuse to be a bastard in the temporal world.
    People who voted for Trump stuck a rusty dagger in America's liver, and therefore in mine. That's irredeemable. Not for some imaginary afterlife, but for being accepted in decent society right now.
    You claim that debate requires stipulation. You are wrong. Debate requires two sides of the story.

    Not so.

    There's nothing to debate when you can't agree on what you're going for.

    You must agree on what you're going for and just disagree on how to get there.

    Further, every story doesn't have two sides. If you're arguing that the earth is flat, you don't have a side. You have a psychosis.
