This is a blog to discuss philosophy, chess, politics,
C. S. Lewis, or whatever it is that I'm in the mood to discuss.
I can think of at least two reasons:1) Consistent critical/rational/logical thinking is more work than most people are willing to do most of the time.2) If one ventures an opinion, sure as God made little green apples, someone else is bound to:a) deny it (assert you are wrong);b) refute it (demonstrate you are wrong).
... besides the fact that most people really don't like controversy, most people also can't automatically distinguish between 2a) and 2b). But, of course, that difficulty goes back to 1).
