Must have used the wrong word. I was unaware that Nadia assumed debates are
wars that must be won or lost.

I replied to her questions, agreeing with her on several points. I see by
her above answer that she has locked on to the word "debate" and is now
closed to any further communication. Guess, the myth of Nadia's open mind
is finally shattered. Didn't think my joking comment would be the one to do

Hey, I've taken the time to respond to a lot of Nadia's and other people's
points here. I've made the effort to separate what I thought was wrong from
what I thought was right. All of you can reread my posts if you disagree
with me here and tell me where I've only been out to "win win win."

I guess what Nadia expects here was for me to bow down before her, accepting
all her views as true, never disagreeing except to uphold the sham of her
"communication." If that's the case, then there is no point in
communication. A direct and parting shot at Nadia: Has she even thought she
might be wrong about anything she's said during this entire thread? I
didn't think so!
