Re: Rrhain on language and color
Second.

A thread I thought would be a dog turned out beautifully. I've learned more about color than I previously knew. The standard in that thread is high, except for some humor here and there...

But Rrhain's in particular moved deeper, observing empirical relationships between color and language, displaying with knowledge the contrast between what science and reason can apprehend vs. the knotted superstition of numerology.

I should have done this sooner--how striking reason can be!

Kudos also to anglagard, Dogmafood, and Panda for fine contributions in that thread.

It's likely that folk might well even take your subtitle seriously.

I confess I wrote that subtitle with a half-smile, but it never occurred to me that anyone would take it seriously.

I admire the rational courage of your position and agree completely. My apologies if I have inadvertently undermined it.
