Re: U2 Can someone be objective and rationalize

Rob, objectivity is more of a ideal/norm to aspire for rather than
being a reality simply because we all have subjects and not objects.
Just beacuse Wire disagrees with your opinions about Bono's voice,
looseness, etc. doesn't mean that you are the only objective one while
the rest of us are biased. Just because you like "Miami" doesn't mean
everone else does. Just because you liked the "old" Bono voice
doesn't mean everyone else should. Why can't you learn to accept that?

You said "I just feel Red hill, Where the Streets, blah, blah, blah."
So you used the word "feel" meaning it is only your own opinion. Just
because people don't share the same ideas as you doesn't mean we are

Can someone rationalize? Sure we all can. This is where we use our
gift of "reason" which is given ONLY to human beings. I use my reason
to argue my side and you use your reason to argue yours, and everyone
uses their reason. So aren't we all rationalizing here? The problem
would arise when one would think he has "superior" reason over
another, hence, saying demeaning statements.

I think the main problem is that you have succumbed to the temptations
of evil by letting your emotion and obsession with the 1987 U2 get
into the way to a point where you are trying to force your ideas to
Wire (to no avail).

In Wire, we share ideas and don't impose of force ideas to others.
What you need to do is learn to RESPECT. People see thing differently
Rob, because we don't just look with our eyes but we give with our
eyes too.

I sincerely hope and pray that someday you will see the light of your
actions. I would rather not argue with you because upon reading your
last post, it was just the same old rehash argument about Bono's
voice, the B-side, etc. You're going around in circles and I myself
wouldn't want to.

May the Lord bless you...



PS: Just one more thing, look at any post I made comparing SATS to Red
Hill Mining Town and you will find none so I find your claim
dumbfounded. The only way I may have had compared them was that they
both had "catchy and anthemic" tunes. How can I do that when "Red
Hill Mining Town" is my all-time favorite U2 song, bar-none? So I'm
pretty biased towards that song...
