Re: If I Don't Agree With You am I Therefore wrong?

I kept marrying the same kind of girl who always agreed with me. Finally married one who disagreed with everything I said and haven't been happier! Therefore, wrong is right for me. Go figure! Phil

Re: If I Don't Agree With You am I Therefore wrong?

As my father used to say whenever anyone disagreed with him, "Everyone is entitled to be as wrong as they wish".

Unless being wrong, or considered to be wrong by others, is an issue, why care?

The "Captain" is never wrong, he may not always be right, but he is never wrong.

Re: If I Don't Agree With You am I Therefore wrong?

My take on the topic

There are 3 basic ways to do something(probably wrong but humor me) the right way, the wrong way and my way. You may not think my way is the right way but that doesn't automatically make it the wrong way either.

If you feel offended, it's only because you believe it was pointed at you. . .which it was not, nor anyone else specifically on this forum. Secondly, a forum is a venue for varying and divergent opinions and it is just this difference of opinions that make it an interesting place to visit. How frequently would you visit Cruisersforum if everyone thought the same and no one had a different opinion? George Orwell's 1984? Finally, the concept of "one-upmanship" is a mentality that is usually perceived in the mind of the person whose ideas are being challenged. Just because someone doesn't agree with you does not mean they are subjugating you to an interminable offense or the Russian Gulag. Stay focused, stay light and enjoy a great forum that allows an interesting mix of divergent opinions and ideas without undue and restrictive censorship. Good luck and good sailing . . . and remember the words of the late and great Brother Don Cornelius of SoulTrain fame: "Love, Peace and Soul." Captain Rognvald the Obtuse
I believe the word is spelled with an s after the "U" 'Austropithacus' I had to do this as I cant spell a lick!lol

I honestly haven't a clue without Googling it. Picked it up in a shop while serving an apprenticeship many moons ago.

An excellent case in point: someone who is truly wrong! (And not just because of poor spelling.)

While the entire Australopithecus genus was bipedal, they are skeletally adapted to an arboreal lifestyle.

Re: If I Don't Agree With You am I Therefore wrong?

Once a statement is uttered / posted, it is no longer up to the poster to decide what meaning / bias / shade it conveys. It is a public space and it is up to the public to agree on what goes.

You can't call me an arse and argue that in your neck of the wood it is a compliment.

If in doubt, avoid using wording that MAY be found offensive or bad education by your readers.

I always wanted to be a preacher but then the white man came and dragged me to their ship.
