  I can't prove that an absurdity is wrong.

  It's like:
  sdw:  "The letter A is the same thing as the sound of the letter A."
  lion:  "No, you're wrong."
  sdw:  "Well, prove it."

  lion: "Well, the sound of the letter A, ... it sounds like something.
          But the letter A is just a shape."
  sdw:  "I caaaaan't heaaaar youuuuuuuuu..."
  lion:  "Fuck this shit."
  sdw:  "Why do you insist on dualism?  Don't you know that was disproven?"
