The Most Pointless of Pursuits.

I’m currently engaged in a protracted argument on YouTube over matters religious and generally spiritual. It’s becoming tedious and has to stop.

The point is that an argument isn’t the same as an exchange of views. An argument is essentially competitive, and what’s the point of engaging in a competition around a subject like religion since neither of you can possibly know whether you’re right?

One of us needs to leave the ring, and on this occasion I’m quite happy that it should be me.
