Re: [questioningrel-83] Stop talking about absolutes...

I'm comfortable with discourse that goes "Let's discuss Y, assuming
X", however this goes into hypothetical discussions and, correct me if
I'm wrong, I believe that Mario was looking to have a more practically
based discussion rather than a purely hypothetical one. We can say
"Solomon thought this was an absolute, let's discuss this text in that
context" but then the text loses some of its value as a jumping off
point since now we're constrained by his first premise. A bit of a
pickle :)
