I will refrain from commenting on Yanniru's intellectual abilities. All I can say is that if I had to bet money on a dispute between you and anyone else, I would always bet on you, not because I think you're always right but because I know you never talk about things you don't understand.
I invited you to join the forum again but I knew you would decline; there really isn't much worth talking about here. I'm hanging on out of boredom, I should have left a long time ago.
Two quick things:
" I personally think that is a very important issue and it gives rise to some very interesting questions "
" I am interested in understanding and I think the rest of you should be interested in the same thing "
" there is no cause here to help "
" the only truth is what you know to be true [,] everything else is just a story "
I still maintain you need to learn a thing or two about logic from a good programmer :-)
As to everything being "just a story", it sounds to me like someone walking into a movie theatre and, upon seeing half the audience crying (all women, by the way), walks in front of the screen and starts yelling, "what a bunch of fools, don't you realize this is just a story?"
Since I know you are often slow to get the point, what I think, yes, it's just a story, but it's a beautiful one and certainly worth telling.
And so life goes on as it always has and always will.
