I've decided that I must rely on logic, whenever I can. Get people to look at things differently, tempered with reason. God has a part in this.
Getting people to look at things differently is fine - but not at the expense of ignoring what they say and just returning over and over again to arguments that have been responded to but you ignore the response.
Using logic is great, but what are you doing when you refuse to acknowledge that language evolves and that common use defines words? You disagreed with me but only responded by asking questions without explaining how you thought they refuted this claim.
I'm starting to think that you're not a troll, but neither do I think you're really interested in a back and forth discussion. You reply to lengthy arguments with pithy one liners and then say "well, we've got to agree to disagree".
If you want respect for your arguments sometimes you have to give it as well. That doesn't mean you need to agree - but at least treat the argument seriously (that goes for a lot of people actually).
