Can I ask, when (if?) you encountered the kind of sustained questioning that goes on on this forum, did you find yourself having to avoid addressing certain questions? Did you feel that you were giving direct and pertinent answers?
At the time, I did not think I avoided anything and I thought all of my answers were direct and on point, but looking back, I can see a lot more circular reasoning and obfuscation that I had no idea I was doing at the time. I believe that at times, our faith and convictions no manner what they are placed in can be hindering to our ability to think and process data efficiently and correctly. Our brains seem wired to find ways of confirming what we believe and that is why I think change can be such a difficult process.
