This conversation with Z reminds me of a joke I've told a couple of times on-line:

A reporter doing a story on the Wailing Wall in Jeruselem approaches an old Jew he has seen praying at the wall almost every morning.

"What are you praying for," he ask the old man.

"For peace," the guy responds, "For peace between the Jews and the Arabs; between the Israelis and the Palestinians -- and peace for everyone all over the world."

"And how do you think all this praying is working out," asks the reporter.

"It's like talking to a wall!" says the guy.

None of you folks are going to get through to Z.

He, and others like him, have great value in one of these discussions, though. Even dedicated "believers" see the absurdity of the kinds of arguments he offers.

Concur, Frank. Much like the guy on the How Religion Irks Me thread a few months back - Who would argue endlessly, but only using his own arbitrary set of rules.

I'm feeling wonderful, thank you.

What exactly is an "insite?"

Insite is insight mispelled.

Sorry, I never studied etymology to any extent. Did you derive this ilk from Ebonics?

I never studied etymology, so where it came from is a big mystery. Wink Your guess is as good as mine. I've known a few "greatarteest" in my lifetime, because we've been a consumer for many decades. Other than that, my language skills are nil.
