    At this point, is there anything productive about them? Seems like nearly all end with salvos of insults and no change of opinions.

    Unfortunately they're just like the politics threads. And the homosexuality threads. And the abortion threads. And the capital punishment threads. And the calvinist threads. And the Obama threads. And the Dem threads. And the GOP threads. And pretty much any other current events thread.

    I say combine them all into one big thread.:laugh:

    Then yes there is a need for them. A Radical as I understand it wants to get to the truth, the root cause. (Radix ra·dix)
    ˈrādiks,ˈrad-/
    noun
    noun: radix; plural noun: radices

    1. Mathematics
    the base of a system of numeration.
    2. formal
    a source or origin of something.
    "Judaism is the radix of Christianity"

    The only person who has said anything about a "radical" in this thread is you.

    Dissent, even conflict, are necessary, and indeed desirable. Without this there can be no understanding.

    The title says R-A-C-I-A-L (as in race issues)......it does not say R-A-D-I-C-A-L

    He probably didn't have his glasses on and quickly seen "racial" and transposed it to "radical." :smilewinkgrin: And you are always criticizing my grammar and how I write. Judge not lest ye be judged yourself.

    Then I agree with Zack .... They all end with salvos of insults and no change of opinions.

    When was the last time you read anything edifying in here?

    And yet .... here you are posting yet one more "racial"thread ... with "Racial"in the title line? Talk about calling the kettle black? And that was not racial, it was part of an old adage or idiom! :smilewinkgrin:

    And I'm supposed to believe you are at work? A good believer would not be using his employers time and dime to be posting to and reading threads! As for multitasking, if you are screwing up on words on the board, I pity your employer and anything you are multitasking.

    Maybe you're not the great multitasker you think you are, and you'd do well to pay better attention to just one thing at a time .... "racial" -vs- "radical" is proof you are not able to do anything well, except make excuses????? :smilewinkgrin:
