“A sensible person wins admiration, but a warped mind is despised.” (Proverbs 12:8 NLT)
I’m sorry but I’m really distracted. Just quote proverbs. Can’t go wrong with proverbs. Every verse a winner.
I don’t mean to be facetious. Sorry if that’s how I’m coming across.
I got into an exchange on Twitter on the subject of climate change. I’ll paraphrase the discussion…
Other: climate change is a government hoax.
Me: here is a link to research which proves that, according to their data, the global temperatures have gone up.
Other: where’s the data for over 50 years ago?
Me: what are you talking about?
Other: the world was covered with lava when it was first made. How hot is lava, wizard?
Me: I’m no wizard, neither are you and we’re not talking about 4 billion years ago, as you well know.
Other: aha! Just what I’d expect a sponge head to say!
Other: you say you want to go, and yet you keep on replying!
Me: (I said nothing else)
The whole thing about talking to someone who may or may not be just out to provoke an argument leaves me feeling angry. What’s wrong with just having a normal conversation? Don’t people do that any more or are they all warped?
