    Soonet members,
    We are quite sure that the following obituary is that of our long time member, Aristotle. I have occasionally had personal correspondence with him. Everything about the info in the obit checks out with what we knew about him..

    He had an uncanny ability to initiate discussion or argument as the case may be.
    The aim of argument, or of discussion, should not be victory, but progress.

    If you wanted a serious discussion he would give it as you see here. If you didn’t, well he would give you that too. I was going to come on her when the US won the World Juniors but forgot. He loved when the US won at hockey.

    True.

    Oh my, how sad. I haven't lurked around here for a while but felt a little nostalgic and came by to see if it's still up and if people still post. We rarely if ever saw things eye to eye, I always respected his convictions and he was a good antagonist. I would even go as far to say he tempered some of my views on things.

    It's good to see your still kicking around.
    One can be a true believer in anything: psychic ability, Christianity or, as Bertrand Russell classically suggested (with irony), in the fact there is a teapot orbiting the earth. I could believe any of those things with total conviction. But my conviction doesn't make them true. Indeed, it is something of an insult to the very truth I might hold dear to say that something is true just because I believe it is. ~Derren Brown
