I particularly like one of the comments:
Quote
I like the step-by-step approach to finding begin finding truths.
Step 1.) Remove your ego, pride and, fear.
Step 2.) Take them down to the curb and beat them to death with a shovel.
Step 3.) Wash the mess down the gutter to a drain.
Your chances at 'finding truths' just skyrocketed. Now get back to reading... lots and lots of reading.
The best things in life are free, such as, living outside of fear.

Don't miss these other great articles by Wendy, about arguing and reasoning:

Wish I'd run into these when I was younger; it would have saved me a lot of grief.

  Excellent article and comments, Paul.

   In a slightly similar vein, Neil A. Smith's latest dragged my 1980's vintage, one-hitch
  stint as a deuce-gear-wearing "nation builder" (cough) into a quiet place of
  reevaluation.
