It suprises me just how blinded some people are by teachings.
Yeah. Of course, you can learn an awful lot of useful stuff from 'teachings' too - if you pick the right teacher/s.
I haven't really got time to be explaining with quotes of quotes of quote.
Do you think I need explaining to? If so, I wish you would. I'd be interested to see what you have to say. It would definitely be better for me than the above, which just seems to be a way of avoiding answering anything, delivered in a vaguely dismissive and condescending way.
The jigsaw...... Have you seen the jig saw in america that you can win a million pounds if you complete it ?
use this one as a comparison instead of your 2 year old childs.
I can't use it, I haven't seen it. Although since I don't have a 2 year old child, I am unlikely to use its jigsaw as an example either.
With the jigsaw that I am refering to, there are millions of difference combinations. you can get 3 quarters of it completed in a way that appears totally correct only to discover that all you have done correctly, is wrong
Well why didn't you say so? Your analogy only works if you use as the comparison a single specific jigsaw which you have seen, but which you did not mention until now. Not any old jigsaw will do! In fact most jigsaws will not do. No, not even that. Only ONE jigsaw, chosen by you, is to be used. Of course, this changes everything.
Look, here's the thing. It's simply not true to say that because we don't know the final answer, everything else we have leading up to the final answer is useless.
