I learned about tribalism on here. No vast amount of evidence and rationale will ever overcome a tribal belief.
I spent years repeating the same methodology and expecting a different result, so I guess I'm less sane than they are.
The job of a skeptic is to investigate the unexplained; not to explain the uninvestigated.

I`ll not claim, or admit otherwise...

Huh, I thought that was the dress code to post on Skeptics, have I been doing this wrong????
Asked to explain why they hate Jews, anti-Semites contradict themselves. Jews are always showing off; they are hermetic and secretive. They will not assimilate; they assimilate only too well. They are too religious; they are too materialistic, and a threat to religion. They are uncultured; they have too much culture. They avoid manual work; they work too hard. They are miserly; they are ostentatious spenders. They are inveterate capitalists; they are born Communists. And so on.

It has long been my philosophy of life to never come up to code. That would just raise unachievable expectations.
