Today...well, actually over the course of a few days, I learned that it is actually possible to have a civil, good-natured, and thoughtful debate with someone you don't agree with on this board. It really is rather mind-blowing, but stj
, someone I usually don't agree with and can't remember ever having much to do with before, and I have been having a really excellent conversation on the nature of religion and psychology over in the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes divorce thread. I'd actually been feeling rather downtrodden when it came to discussing opposing views, because so many people can't do it without being offended or becoming offensive. This conversation has actually been really cool, and while it might not interest anyone else, it's made me feel a little better about people online!
