Recently, I've had good dialogue with Peter Pike, from Triablogue. I've actually enjoyed them; as well as with Patrick Chan over at Triablogue. The only one who seems to be unreasonable is Steve Hays. Though I admit that the last time I engaged him on that site, he wasn't ready to burn me at the stake, haha, which was refreshing.
There’s no doubt that I’m outclassed by Peter and Patrick–not to mention my other team members. I’m a canoe to their superyacht.
However, as a point of clarification, the reason I’m reluctant to burn a theological opponent at the stake is due to certain inherent limitations in that particular procedure. It’s one of those things that doesn’t have quite the same effect the second time round. You see, once your opponent is crispy on the outside, the cooking process is pretty irreversible. It loses that j'ne sais quoi with every repeat performance. So I tend to keep that option in reserve, for my climactic finale.
