So, yesterday was the graduation/promotion night for my homeschool group, although no one was graduating this year. It seems that I'm getting into a pattern: everytime I'm down at the church where we holds the graduation and a few other events, I find myself in intense religious discussion/debate with a friend. Comes from being the only Catholic in a Protestant group, I suppose. This time, however, my dad got into religious debate with three of the dads as well. In our defense, we didn't initiate said debates: the dads had been meaning to talk religion since last year, and my friend keeps bringing up religion, not me.
To make a long story short, I got bored and started listening to the debate my dad was in. And before you knew it, I had pretty much supplanted my dad in the debate. Needless to say, we were probably the last peopple to leave. In terms of explaining, I think I did well. I doubt I had to back down on a single point, whereas often my opponents were forced to hurriedly change the subject. So I'm happy.
By then I had gotten nicely worked out intellectually, which feels pretty good, almost like physically working out. The bad side? My mouth is still a little tired from talking so much. :|
