thank you, Bob, for the heated but respectful argument.
We should all be willing to listen to opinions to debate with respect. Naturally, people who are stubborn and disrespectful are not worth the effort. Too many people are hard-headed, not because they’ve thought through the issues but because they refuse to be “wrong”. I don’t mind ignoring people like this (they are the “toxic” people), but I love hearing opinions of those who disagree and are willing to actually have the discussion.
The funny thing is that many of my friends who DO believe in holistic medicine are reposting this blog that I interpret to be anti-holistic.
Greek story teller Aesop said, "Together we stand, divided we fall." The divisions in our society today are troubling, and I fear we are ready for a fall if we don't learn to have civil discussions, and seek that win-win middle ground.
