Response to looking back through this thread...
I did not say this was not a real discussion. I said by process of elimination this IS a discussion, just not an enjoyable and enlightening one. That is my opinion; I feel neither enjoyment nor enlightenment. Perhaps you feel differently, and you are experiencing enjoyment, enlightenment, or both. If not, then we have reached a concensus, which is, as you stated above, the ideal outcome of a discussion. Otherwise, this discussion has become, to quote the wise one Mondo, "repetitive and pointless".
And I'm sure that the onus of the failure of our discussion falls upon me, because you see, I do not even know what we are discussing anymore. I do not even know what opinion it is that I have so arrogantly stated as fact. And as attempt to read back to the point where we started this discussion in the middle of this thread, I can see that I not only do not remember what we are discussing, but that I'm not even really sure what we were discussing in the first place. At a few points I thought I did, but judging from your responses, no, I was completely clueless.
And so now, I must most humbly crave your pardon, because I am clearly quite out of my league. I possess neither the skill nor the intellect to carry on a discussion with you, and I cannot, in good conscience, continue to subject you to my arrogance and dreadfully poor communication skills.
I wholeheartedly wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors to find an appropriate person to talk to, or even better, a worthy opponent to debate. I am, without question, not that elusive person.
And now, dear JVH, with a full heart, I release you from this repetitive and pointless discussion. =)
