This forum has evolved beautifully,
having become a meeting place for intelligent, honest conversation
about interesting matters. I am impressed also with the civility and
cordiality evinced by contributors here, which seem to me to be of a
higher level than I have seen on other unmoderated, totally open
discussion boards. Yes, there have been a couple of exceptions to
this gentility, but flamers and fools don't seem able to gain
much of a foothold here.
I would be interested in hearing some
replies to this question:
What does it mean to believe
something? When you look with honesty into your own mind, what do you
believe, and what is the root source of those beliefs?
