However, my point was not that. Sarah and I are two different individuals and so we can have different opinions on a subject.

- Ah, I understand. You are unable to understand the fact that a person can be convinced by another person's argument and change their viewpoint accordingly? You understand that two people can have differing views yet are unable to comprehend that one viewpoint can affect another? This explains a great deal. Sarah explained that my comments regarding Judaism and Christianity were nonsense and I was convinced by her argument that she was correct. After all, she has no motivation for deceit in such a matter. Does your inability to believe that such an argument could sway another indicate a) your contempt for her words or b) a closed mind on your part? Are you confessing that you have a 'closed' mind and are unable to understand the concept of an open one? I'm a little confused by your failure to understand this! Is the fact that the New Testament (telling as it does the stories of Christ) has considerably more impact on a Christian than the Old Testament really that perplexing?
