I too tend to be the open minded fool stuck in the middle, but i think why people keep putting words like "sheeple" into your mouth is that for
example when commenting on my example you mentioned how the neuroscientist could be wrong, simply assuming that the masses would accept that the
psychic could be wrong. It is small things like that that end up hinting at you leaning towards one side of the argument.
As to how you argue with them if they understand near zero of what you are discussing is by slowly teaching them the most basics, and building up from
that. Perhaps you allow them to teach you the basics of the black magistry behind computer programing as well. That is what having an open mind is
all about. It tends to be easier for me, because I am open to learning new systems and beliefs, but in truth when one closely examines any argument
one can still find truth from which to learn. For example if we say that in the US "blacks are stupid because there are more of them in prison"
than we remove the opinion, we can derive the fact that there is a higher ratio of blacks in US prisons than there is of whites (i'm speaking
proportional to the total of each), and thus we have learned something (given that some things may be more interesting to learn through less offensive
As to the spelling thing, all i can say is sorry for that, i'm dyslexic XD.
