I love Till We Have Faces .. it's one of my favourite books by any author at any time. I like Mere Christianity too though I don't agree with all of it. It's a useful book for an agnostic like me to get basic questions about Christianity answered though. I also like Lewis's love of logical evaluation, even though I don't agree with some of the conclusions that he reaches.

Well yeah or I wouldn't have asked. Hmmm can be interpreted in many different ways.

Could be. I never get into debates of any kind. I just make my presence know that I am listening to all views. Letting the others think they have the upper hand in the conversation and surprise them when they least expect it. Then they think this guy really does know what he is talking about. And if I don't know or don't care, it's better to remain silent.

Debates stimulate the mind. Healthy debates mind you. A debate where everyone just hates on everyone else is not cool.

The trouble is that I think it's easier on the internet for people to forget that they're talking to living, breathing human beings and hence sometimes say things that I presume that they would not dream of saying in real life. These days I try to avoid the sort of debate that is likely to just turn into an argument :)

I say the same thing here as I would in person. But I am not a confrontational person unless someone is rude to me and then they have HAD it. And they know when I've spoken because I have the last word and they are gone.

They generally have two choice by that point.

1. Do as I say. OR
2. Get out of my office now.

Keep in mind, I am only this way if they are rude, loud, irritating, or mean to me or any of my employees.

…on a night of rain Frodo smelled a sweet fragrance on the air and heard the sound of singing that came over the water. And then it seemed to him that as in his dream in the house of Bombadil, the grey rain-curtain turned all to silver glass and was rolled back, and he beheld white shores and beyond them a fair green country under a swift sunrise.
