    This has no place on this board.

    Or at a Kingdom Hall.

    "Can you envision anything that will change your mind on this topic?"

    ^ Poorly worded and bias.

    The question should be something along the lines of "Can you envision yourself, in the future, changing your mind, in whole or in part, on the topic at hand if new evidence, or a new line of thinking, is presented to you?"

    If someone would answer this question "no" they are merely a prideful a bigot and deserve none of anyone's time in regards to conclusion making or honest discussion. The first question, on the other hand, is aggressive and puts one party on the defensive which is counterintuitive to discussion and defeats the whole document's purpose.

    Sorry about the red pen. I'm not in a good mood today at all.

    Dear Sabastious, I hope you feel better soon!

    I question the bit about the position that is more reasonable and has more supporting evidence should be accepted as true. What if both positions turn out to be false?

    Can you envision yourself changing your mind if evidence to support the other person's position is presented to you?
