It's possible to disagree with person's opinions but an ideal is harder to overcome, and people who don't have enough strength in their own convictions will steadfastedly align themselves with an ideal as they don't have or want the necessary strength in their own convictions and opinions to discuss or even to think of things themselves and the arrogance to think they need to know something about everything.

It's a combination of weakness of character and undeserved arrogance.
Also, spot on. It seems as if thinking for yourself and having the balls and determination to do what YOU think is best for YOU is one of the hardest damned things to do for most people.
Following the herd and having 'safety in numbers' is a far easier option isn't it?
It does piss me off immensely to hear people steadfastly stick to one opinion (especially in the health and fitness industry where there are 100s of ideas) and take it as Gospel whilst completely ignoring other ideas that are at least plausible. [In this case, people who ignore or lambast frequent feeding are actually going against a principle that has plenty of case studies in its favour]

This kind of thinking ensures that these individuals will never truly learn and always be stuck in their own little bubble.

You and I are doing experiments on ourselves using IF-type protocols but even if it yields excellent results for one or both of us, neither party will start promoting it as the 'be all and end all', just that it's a good individual solution.

Bottom line on my little ramble, experiment and test new things out but don't get carried away and lambast other things if your experiment actually works. There's a big world to explore, let's not allow ourselves to miss out.

He really is a cretin. Just another example of talentlessness triumphing.
