Hi Michael, I haven't been here in a while, but this post caught my attention. I enjoyed it very much, and passed it on to my wife. Thanks! The video at the end of the original article on Literary Hub is priceless! In general, broadening the scope of your blog to include more of your interests seems better than letting it limp along or die entirely because you've pretty thoroughly covered the area that became its major focus—even if that wasn't the original intent of the blog—and you're now ready to move on.

Hi Michael, Good thoughts. People's minds are formed by the basic principles they've accepted. And that mental form is structured such that it accepts things that agree with it and rejects things that don't. When I'm debating someone who holds differing views based on differing starting principles, my goal is rarely to convince that person of what I'm saying. Rather, I'm focused on the listeners, some of whom may not have made up their minds yet. Once people have made up their minds, they're generally impervious to countervailing arguments. Usually only some shattering experience, whether sudden or over time, will dislodge people from firmly held beliefs. And even shattering experiences may not be enough to do it. PS. I tried to sign in as WordPress, but got a persistent error from TypePad related to the login servers.
