I have no regrets.
I won't send him to hell, but he can bite me.
No regrets here, either, Dano.

At the cost of sounding cynical, do you really believe that? Why?

Yes I do. At some level, people will process and incorporate new information. When our ideas are challenged (as happens now and again in this forum), I doubt we end up in the exactly the same place as we were before our ideas are challenged.

Personally, I find it far more persuasive to listen to different ideas than to watch a news clip of the last protest rally.

Also, I find it amusing when people half my age say they are "set in their ways". I am sure I thought I knew everything when I graduated high school.
