So a little while ago I joined the forums at the Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry (CARM) in the hopes of being able to actually have some productive discussions with Christians rather than the typical troll fests I often have on Sodahead. Ironically enough, there are far more trolls on CARM than there are on Sodahead, but I digress.

Nobody enjoys a good argument more than I do, especially when I’m right. As a counselor though, I am very much aware that most of the time heated arguments only serve to solidify the position one has already taken. Consider the debates we see on the news. Democrats and Republicans regularly skewer
each other. We never see a Republican say “Gosh! You’re right! What was I thinking all this time?” Likewise, Democrats in debate generally don’t suddenly say “Wow! Reaganomics really…
I am going down to London to go see Sam Harris in an Intelligence Squared debate the "reverand" Dr Giles Fraser, Canon Chancellor of St Paul's Cathedral on the topic of where do our ideas about morality and meaning come from?
