Challenge Them

So, I was reading Dad 29 the other day regarding (alleged) Global (we can believe in?).  You can read the whole thing here.  I challenged two commenters with whom I have dealt before.  I did not receive a response from either this guy or the guy who chose to be anonymous.

And this is the point.  We have the facts.  We need to continually challenge them on facts.  When they ask us to "read outside our comforts zone", challenge them to do the same.  Give them the links.  They won't go there because they are the ones uncomfortable with different views.  When they claim someone needs special rights,  do not just tell them to prove it, be specific and ask them what Rights do they not have that are enshrined in the Constitution.  Ask how they are oppressed using the backdrop of the laws of the land.  If they respond, provide them with facts.  No, they won't listen, but do it anyway.   Their arguments are emotional and not fact based.  They are easy to refute.  Turning the conversation back at them will keep them off balance and unable to continue to attack.

Try it.  It's fun.

It's fun, yes.

Sad, though--that there are people who are simply incapable of serious thought on an issue.

It would be one thing were they to acknowledge the facts and come to a different conclusion; at least they would exhibit some sort of logic-train....
