I was recently at an auction and standing beside a grey truck waiting for some people to clear out before we left. The conversation that followed actually happened:
Man standing beside me: (Him) "Is that your truck?"
Me: "No, sorry." (I thought he was going to ask me to move it.)
Him: "Good, Chevy makes a horrible truck. I wouldn't drive a Chevy if someone gave it to me."
Me: "Oh, what kind of a truck do you recommend? Or should I ask what kind of a truck do you drive?"
Him: "I don't own a truck but I'd definitely buy a Ford if I got one."
Me: "Oh? What kind of a car do you own?"
Him: "Well, I don't have one at the moment."
Me: "So you'd probably drive a Chevy if someone gave you one?"
Him: "Yeah, if someone gave me one."
Me: "That's what I thought."
I had a giggle at his expense and I hoped that he learned how silly his argument was. He probably didn't.
It reminds me of people who are Intelligent Design advocates. They're knocking a theory, that does everything that it needs to, simply because the theory they don't have but wish they had would be better than evolution. Intelligent Design advocates have yet to postulate a theory to replace the theory they vehemently oppose.
