I'm a bit weary of the "open your mind" kind of comments being used to rebuff criticism or skepticism. I think few of us suffer from being too critical, and I think, unless you're identifying a prejudice, "opening your mind" is just a recipe for becoming a sucker. If an idea doesn't stand on its own, then it's probably lacking something. It shouldn't need an "open mind" kind of context to give it legs. Other then that, its good to see people venturing off the path of convention. Thanks for the links.
