          • ‘Coup de grace’ more like it. You can figure out the probability of being correct by learning the Trivium. Adults usually start with the fallacies and biases.

          • If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

        • I was being kind. I didn’t want to point out that there was no logical fallacy in my reply because I wasn’t refuting your position, but agreeing with it. I was reinforcing that we ALL need to have some self reflection involved when we seek to be judgemental.

          You seemed to interpret correctly that I was holding up a mirror to you, hence I was congratulating you on both noticing the reflection and seeing my point. It was no “coup de grace”

          • I wasn’t saying you were. I was giving you my method of reflection. ‘Try to remember it’ is hostility, not agreement. Something to reflect on ;P

    • “Hostility” is a strong word – feeling a little sensitive? I’d see “a worthy sentiment” as agreement. But must the two be mutually exclusive?
