Some words about the previous post

Strident:

1.  Loud and harsh, grating
2.  Presenting a point of view, especially a controversial one, in an excessively and unpleasantly forceful way

Oh well, calling it as I see it.

Empirical:

1.  Relying on or derived from observation or experiment.
2.  Verifiable or provable by means of observation and experiment.
3.  Guided by practical experience and not theory – or hearsay.

Yes, that’s precisely what I am talking about, no blind faith or handbooks needed.

Earnest:

1.  Serious in intention, purpose, or effort, sincerely zealous.
2.  Showing depth and sincerity of feeling.

Yes, always.  And goes hand in hand with the first one, sadly.
