    I see that more often in more public discourse, such as the media. Reading comments on a post about religion or politics from a mainstream news source like yahoo (never a good idea) makes obvious commenters’ confusion about concepts. What do you suppose is a solution?

      The obvious solution to me is to simply spend more time thinking and less time speaking – thinking and learning. But on the whole I’m not holding my breath for that to happen.
