In reply to: ketch - 14 Jun 2001 's message, "Re: Taking the Discussion Further" on 11:47

Ketch, let's be clear: if "prejudiced" means "making up your mind" beforehand, then I am "prejudiced" against the notion that the cosmos revolves around the earth, "prejudiced" against the notion that reindeer fly, "prejudiced" against the notion that there are ghosts, goblins and succubi. And, yes, among many other things, I am "prejudiced" against the notion that Yogananda selected the time and circumstances of his death.

Note that 'prejudice' normally means "an unfavorable opinion formed beforehand without knowledge, thought, or reason." So to throw around loaded language like this in the hopes that everyone will know the vastly attenuated sense you have in mind is misleading at best.

I'd prefer that you simply retract the charge rather than play on fine, tenuous semantic distinctions.
