Hey! The things I will warn you about is that 1) don't assume ANYTHING about anything 2) prepare to have your beliefs questioned 3) you can still leave. It's possible to back out now. But once you start.....your stuck.

Don't assume your beliefs are infallible, because the very nature of what you believe in will probably be questioned, and possibly your viewpoint will change.

Well of course. If someone can make a logical argument that can override my own internal logic then my views will obviously change.

The only thing I might find infallible is my internal logic which is what fuels the way I think. If I give that up I wouldn't know who I am. Not my beliefs, but how I think.

haha says the lefty turned right :P

Yes, I think what Ober was trying to say is don't make bold assertions and don't take any belief for granted. But you probably figured that out from the title of the site already.

It's true. DDO is a schedule II drug in the U.S.

That's right, it's on the level with Crack Cocaine, but not nearly as dangerous as Marijuana.
