: Yup, that was my thinking. To include what I meant by polarity.
: In other words...as you said.
: There is a very great distinction between differences and polarity in my head. Differences exist. I applaud them and worship them.
: It's when differences become polarities that the trouble begins.
: I was not attacking any person, thought about my post and figured it might be construed as attacking a person or belief.
: The fact that I can't subscribe to something in a belief structure is no reason to attack it....until that belief structure pre-supposes superiority or an "I'm better than you" mentality.

To clarify; I did NOT think you were attacking any person or belief in your original post. I wasn't responding to any attack. I was discussing points you raised, Bill, as honestly as I could.
As for belief structures; I don't think 'I'm better than you' & it's a bit unfair to assume that is my position merely because I attempted to illustrate why I disagree with you on these 2 points.
My understanding was that we were engaging in a discussion; nothing sinister.
