So, you are Vulcan, and haven't changed your mind since you attended the Vulcan coming of age ceremony?

I am basically rational, if that's what you mean.  That isn't the same as "Star Trek "Vulcan".  It does mean I try to think about problems and events before responding.

Progress requires managed cognitive dissonance, or no alternatives would ever be entertained.

There is a difference between being able to entertain different possibilities and alternatives to proposed situations or claims, without being in cognitive dissonance.

Cognitive dissonance only occurs when one believes (is convinced) contradictory propositions are true simultaneously.
And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that He would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence - Russell

Like Republicans supporting Trump (he said innocently)?
