Together we stand, divided we fall. We were divided before we started.
Religious people, woo woos, new agers...generally speaking, they live by faith, not by sight. How could those of who rely on facts and logic ever convince people who live by faith what the significant problems in the world are?
Look at the Japan forum; there's a huge split between those who realize the seriousness of the Fukushima disaster and those who don't comprehend it. That's an issue that's as clear-cut as it gets.

You can't agree on how to solve a problem until you agree on what the problem is.
The way I see this forum and others like it now is mostly a discussion about what the problems are. That's where it all stops. Talking about solutions means agreeing on what the problems are. You can't get to the former without the latter.
