For some reason, the last little bit of text I typed is not showing up here, yet it does show up in the preview. Anywho, this is what I typed at the bottom of that:

P.Z. is caustic, as usual. I understand why that puts some people off. I find him somewhat off-putting at times myself, but he is right to call this person out. What kind of person criticizes the last words of a dying woman like that? Unbelievable.

People who are 100% convinced they are right. Because they believe they're always right, and being right trumps compassion and common courtesy.

How can it be "wrong" to criticize or insult someone when you're perched in such a lofty place and have exclusive access to The Truth™? After all, you're just doing it for the poor slob's own good, and if he (or she) would just pull his head out long enough to notice, he'd be thankful for the enlightenment.

I've experienced this nastiness from all sides: Atheists, Christians, Jews, Salafis, secular Muslims, you name it. It obviously works for politics too, or anything really.

Trying to walk a middle path and stay balanced isn't for wusses. At one point or another everyone ends up pissed off at you.

Where is the ultimate place to find The Truth™.

Where is the ultimate place to find The Truth™.

I suspect it lies somewhere within. I'm reasonably certain that I don't have a clue what it is, in essence. I'm also reasonably certain that if I did know I probably wouldn't be wasting time here jabbering about it.

IOW, I'm clueless about everything save the fact that I don't really have a clue about the nature of my own existence, much less what is best or right for anyone else.
