[/qb][/QUOTE]_________________ From Wikipedia: "In debate or rhetoric, the slippery slope is an argument for the likelihood of one event or trend given another. It suggests that an action will initiate a chain of events culminating in an undesirable event later." _____ Mr. Bdgee is claiming that the "action" of the practice of the Munchkin Man's philosophy of teaching in previous centuries would have resulted in the following consequences: A) The works of Kepler, Galilio, Newton, Kanter, Hilbert, Descartes, and other scientists would have never been published. B) The world would still believe that the earth is flat. Wouldn't you say that this is more than just a bit of a stretch? The extreme consequences claimed by Mr. Bdgee above form a very steep and slippery slope, indeed. Best Wishes, Munchkin Man [/QB][/QUOTE]
