"Good post. I've tried pointing out things like how people always seem to experience the religion they believe in and not other ones, and is one experience more 'valid' than another? The response is usually something like "those…"
"I think this is supposed to be a blog, not just a place to promote your other one. If you can't put an effort in making this one better, then I guess this is just a warning to stay away from yours.
Yeah, even if you never get around to writing it, I think it's a good mental exercise to think about what you would say, where you would start, how you would explain it. I found it MUCH more challenging than I'd expected -…"
