Some generations ago, a real estate broker offered them an amazing property, a far away tract of land where, he claimed, "every acre is two acres, you can till the soil with a teaspoon, and there are not only four seasons, there are five."
When they arrived they found that everything the real estate broker said was true! Every acre is two acres because the land is so steep, if you flattened it out, for every acre you’d get two! You can till the soil with a teaspoon because that’s how deep you can dig before you hit bedrock! And there are not only four seasons, there are five: summer, fall, winter, spring, black fly season.

But I am entitled to change my mind at any time. If tomorrow someone were to show me some indisputable, miracle-backed proof that their way is the correct way and I will go to Hell if I don't squat on one foot chanting 3.5 times a week, I will happily throw away my chocolate cone and switch to strawberry.
For now, here is what I believe, and why . . . [close]
