    That says more about your ability to dismiss and ignore arguments you don't like than it says about liberals.
    I didn't say that.

    The point is liberals dismiss their opposition as emotional when they're being intuitive.

    They don't seem to grasp the difference.

    Is it they whom do not understand the difference, or the other way around?

    No, seriously, there are logical arguments and emotional arguments used be people on every side of all those issues. You have a very clear emotional reaction to liberals which colors your thinking.

    Without examples of what you are talking about, we cannot discuss them fairly since the presentation is colored by your bias.
    See, that's what I'm talking about.

    I didn't say logic versus emotion. I says intuition versus emotion.

    You're treating logic and intuition like they're mutually exclusive.

    You might be right. It's possible that the difference doesn't understand liberals.

    This poll is a challenge to liberals to show they understand the difference, and anyone who's reading it can vote on whether or not they're satisfied with liberals' explanations.
    I'll bite.

    Emotions distorts everything you think you see, yet they are the only thing that give relevance or prevalence to the world around you. Without them, you would listlessly watch your loved ones endure atrocities and apathetically starve to death while the world burned around you. People like to think they are rational beings, yet the human mind is really just an add-on to the same animal brain that every other mammal possesses. You can resist your emotions (learning to is a part of becoming an adult) but that requires energy and you've only got a finite amount of it. We dance to the tune of our emotions, partially able to decide when and where we get on the dance floor, but they're the ones dictating the type of dancing we do.

    Intuition is your brain running on mental shortcuts, processing information on a subconscious level and coming to plausible conclusions faster but less accurately than plodding through things logically. Emotion is a filter, a set of baseline assumptions for the things you intuit. The intuition of a teenage boy might be verbalized as, "I like pretty women. Pretty women like Ax body spray. Therefore I like Ax body spray."

    [/pedantic]

    So, do you feel my deplorably liberal college education adequately equipped me to understand the difference?

    It's not emotional, but liberals don't seem to get it.
    If a pro-lifer is willing to stand outside an abortion clinic and scream hate and threaten doctors and even women that walk into them, I think that qualifies as emotion.

    I'm pro-life and I think abortion is an emotional topic. Pretty much any issue people care about can get emotional. I don't understand your question at all. I'm trying to figure out how pro-lifers are being "intuitive" in our arguments and how that's being confused with emotion.

    Do you believe people can care without being emotional?

    No. I mean, some can control their emotional responses better than others and I believe people can care yet argue in an unemotional or dispassionate way, but I think caring includes emotion.

    Have you got proof for this statement?
