aka: Conversations that will never happen.
Zealot: “Hi there. I disagree with your beliefs. After some consideration, research and simple logic, I’ve decided that the beliefs you hold so dear are obviously false, and you would have to be an idiot to hold them. In fact, the only reasons someone could possibly hold your beliefs are willful ignorance, dogmatic social programming, racism, intolerance or just pathalogical stupidity. It’s not even worth my time to engage with you because my reasoning and intelligence are so far advanced compared to yours that you simply cannot fathom the sheer brilliance and flawlessness of my arguements.”
Normal person: “Thank you for sharing that, I find your perspective enlightening, and wish to know more.”
