Nice rant. (no sarcasm) Do you care that it is predicated on a false assertion? (again, no sarcasm) Sometimes I wonder if you have really lost your way, buying into the belief that truth doesn't matter, at least not when it is inconvenient. Does truth get in the way of your purpose?

No rational person claims to be completely rational. Rational people claim to aspire to rationality. That doesn't make them hypocrites. Given the fact that real people do not implement mathematical theorem provers in their head, I'd be willing to bet everyone on this list holds inconsistent world views. What do you call that again...?
