The powerlessness of reason

And I know you know what I'm talking about before I even talk about it.

When you're discussing something with somebody, and you've done your research, and you dazzle them with facts, logic, an appeal to humanity's (rapidy dwindling) moral decency.

And in the end, they say, "I see your point. It makes a lot of sense. But I'm still going to believe in what I believe in." Why? "Just because."

OK, then.

I've come to feel that it's my job in life to get people thinking about things they've never considered before. It's my Jenny's job to get me to do it in a non-caustic way. We'll see how the progression goes.
