There's nothing more obnoxious than someone who thinks that they're opinion = facts. You are 100% free to think and feel however you want, but that doesn't make it right/true. I could say with absolute confidence that the sky above is red (and that I know it is because this is what I've seen/believed for "this" many years which must mean I know what I'm talking about) but that sure as heck doesn't make it so.
Stop talking in absolutes, stop stating your views as the end-all-be-all, stop being so closed minded and maybe people will take you a little more seriously. I know there's a few people on this thread who's given me a good laugh with their massively uneducated statements being touted around as facts.
Threads on pro/anti shoeing (as well as a few other choice topics) always bring them out of the woodwork. At least it's a good way to weed out the kool aid drinkers from the rest. BTW, yes, I'm talking about the die hard barefoot fanatics. Because rarely, if ever, do you see someone pro-shoe spouting so much drivel and judgement to people who prefer going barefoot. We're not the ones trying to shove our opinion down your throats and throwing a tantrum when asked to provide actual, reputable proof/back up to support your ludicrous claims.
