"If God held all truth enclosed in his right hand, and in his left hand the one and only ever-striving drive for truth, even with the corollary of erring forever and ever, and if he were to say to me: Choose!-I would humbly fall down to him at his left hand and say: Father, give! Pure truth is indeed only for you alone!" - Lessing (Quoted by S. Kierkegaard in Concluding Unscientific Postscript, p. 106.)

Here's what happens when you argue a reasonable position:
Dougal: It's a joke telephone.
Father Ted: Dougal, this is a dog toy.
Dougal: What? No, it's not, Ted. It's a joke telephone.
Father Ted: Dougal, this is a toy for dogs. It's something people give dogs on their birthday.
Dougal: Seriously, Ted, it's a joke telephone. Look, just give it to someone and tell them it's a phone and they'll try to make a telephone call.
Father Ted: Dougal, who would think this is a telephone? Even a dog knows this isn't a phone.
Dougal: Well, Ted, we'll agree to differ, alright?
Father Ted: No, we won't agree to differ because you're very, very wrong. Look, did the picture on the packet not even give you a clue? Why do you think the dog looks so happy? Because someone has given him a yellow rubber telephone that makes a noise.
Dougal: No, no, he's laughing because someone's trying to make a phone call on the telephone.
Father Ted: Dougal, dogs don't have the same sense of humour as us. They're not as advanced as us.

Dear TFD, Wikipedia owes you a huge collective thank you for researching the origins of the horrid "Jews & Communism" article and bringing about its well-deserved final demise. Thank you so much!! Your consistent rejection of its premises and clear recognition that it was pseudo-scholarship and your fearless first nomination of it for deletion and never wavering from your highly principled reasoning served as an intellectual and moral beacon in what at some points became an "insane world" by those defending the indefensible. May you go from strength to strength. Your sincerely, IZAK (talk) 11:02, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
