What is Said vs What is Understood

said and heard

The Triangulations blog has revealed an interesting problem between believers and non-believers in the discussion of religion

The post is about religion and harm but it’s the comment area that becomes the interesting part:

If we can’t speak generally about religion and the apparently detail oriented posts aren’t about actual data – you’ve rather interestingly illustrated the essence of the problem of discussion between believers and non-believers

For believers – it’s the details that are critical – but there’s no data to be detailed

For non-believers – it’s the broad strokes that matter, since there’s no data in the details.

so there is no possible arena for discussion
