Debate incentives.

What payoff do I receive from attempting to convince people to agree with me?

None worth it to me…

How do we reconcile the value of being logical with things like human limitations (the eventual exhaustion of the brain, for example), and a human desire to be ILLOGICAL? (Or, rather, an ACCEPTANCE that one is illogical, but accompanied by a general APATHY of that as well: an acceptance that we ALL share to SOME degree or another in various subjects, simply because of our own human limitations, and our own individual desires, the source of which are impossible to pinpoint…) Is there an “appropriate” course of action to settle these conflicts?

The above picture pretty much summarizes my opinions about the stark contrast between mystical moralism and practical logic, and how fear of going to Hell provides an insufficient, malnourishing worldview, whereas true logic is a more effective perspective to apply to yourself, even if it does, say, contrast with certain Biblical Scripture.

Does that make me a hypocrite? For how can one avoid “mystical moralism“, apply “practical logic“, and still be a Christian?

For one, one must understand the difference between moralism and Christianity, which, as evidenced in the world, does not happen at’all. In fact, more often than not, the two are interpreted to be the exact same thing, from both conservatives and atheists, in that, in each of their minds, moralism and Christianity are the exact same thing.

But, they simply aren’t, and I wish I had more of a desire to dedicate sufficient time, energy, and care into constructing a written argument as to why this is the case, but instead, introducing this idea, even if it is not very in-depth, and will only justify in the minds of those I am criticizing that moralism and Christianity are the same, is simply as far as I’m willing to go in this topic, even though I know how erroneously misinterpreted what I am saying is going to be misinterpreted, and how I know how much vitriol I am going to receive from these groups, and well-intended inquiries I am going to receive from them that, once again, I simply do not have the desire nor energy to answer…

My own opinions; my own little world; my own bubble; my own PEACE…

From now on, I’m not going to get involved in debates, or try to change people’s minds, or worry about the fallacies in their heads.

I’m just going to ignore them, write my opinions, and let other people do what they want to with it.

I’m tired of stressing out over other people’s incorrect worldviews…

It’s not worth it.

There’s no payoff.

All it does is create debates, and I don’t like debates, so I’m going to stop caring.

I’m tired of trying to appeal to everybody and still maintain a rational, logical viewpoint on subjects.

That combination is simply impossible to do.

Or, at the very least, not worth it to me to attempt…

Let them think what they will; even if they’re wrong.

It doesn’t mean anything to me.

My mind is so logical, and has been so trained that that is a bad thing, that I’ve been in a constant state of confusion for years…
