"Religous Nonsense" ? ()

There are certain great debates in the woodworking world that really come down to personal preference - pins first/tails first, left tilt/right tilt, pull saw versus push saw, round versus rectangular dogs, and construction of planes as BU, BD, LA, HA, or whatever.

While many claim that facts support their position on these great issues, careful reading and review of even the most assiduously objective reviewer's work reveals layers of additional dependencies that render the results not much beyond the stage of "I believe X to be true, at this date and time, under these conditions, and subject to these conditions and qualifications."

Given that we cannot even agree on the basic mechanics of how a shaving is produced, most of the postings here should carry a warning...

DISCLAIMER: Works for me and might work for you; however, don't get your hopes up.

Sorta sounds like religion to me.
