Note my prior comment about "spilling out into the world" was to express concern about all notions that spill out to others that are based on wrong-thinking and/or lead to false conclusion. Not that there is any problem with spilling good out into the world. Interesting that you again quote or edit only the parts of these comments that don't really capture the full meaning of these comments.

What I wrote verbatim again is this; "The issue for all concerned when wrong-thinking and false conclusion leaves the privacy of one's own home and spills out into the world of others."

I don't put my Ten Truths in this category. Quite the contrary in fact, as explained by my Ten Truths. Explained as best I could manage when I wrote them many decades ago. I appreciate the question BTW and this chance to explain yet again...
I like that you are fine with it 'spilling out', rather than trying to force it on others.

however many people do put the ten items in that category.
many people do consider the ten items to be "false conclusion" and "wrong-thinking," as evidenced by the many posts written in multiple threads expressing just that, over the course of about two years since the ten items were posted on CD.

How about instead of you pick, pick, picking at him, you develop a well-thought-out thesis for your beliefs and let us have a whack at them.

Were the original 9 true? Universally true?

Whenever you would like to comment something we don't all know about my Ten Truths, I'm "all ears." I notice specifics are also not possible for you, but you continue to seem interested. That's better than nothing!

Depends on who you ask, but again for those who don't know...

I added the tenth truth a good while after I wrote the first nine. I added the tenth one as a result of introducing my first nine truths in this forum. As a result of the overwhelming "popular demand" my nine truths seemed to inspire in more than just a few people. This too is the truth and nothing but the truth.

Thanks but it's okay...

I'm always all for whatever anyone wants to share in this forum in the way of their opinion. Even if in many cases the best thing to do is ignore the petty nonsense, sometimes it gives me opportunity to clear up questions and confusion that I enjoy clearing up. Even though with some it's a lost cause, I'm okay doing the best to make myself understood regardless. There are always the others after all. The three or four others...

as you are wont to point out to readers "this isn't a praise forum"
You point that out frequently, to the tune of 66 hits on the search
"Showing results 1 to 30 of 66. Search took 0.07 seconds."

Shown here are some just from the last few months:

Which, of course, has nothing to do with my post.

Do you have some well thought out thesis of your own? The answer is either yes or no. If it's yes, why not put it in writing and share it.
