Logic vs. Emotion or Spock vs. Kirk
Ever know someone who was being cheated on, but wouldn't admit it? What is it that makes them overlook the evidence right in front of their face? Emotional attachment. Maybe they think they're in love with the cheater or maybe they're afraid of them or afraid of being alone, whatever the reason, intense emotions are clouding their judgment. This is a problem for many of the religious, as well. Believe it or not, some people still think the global flood story is real. What other explanation for their blatant disregard of scientific facts? Emotions are very important and useful in many areas but not all. Consider Gov. Sanford and how "love" caused him to behave. There are times when you must give logic the louder voice. Intense emotions may help a terminal patient find needed strength but they are no help to the doctor trying to diagnose the problem. Learn to use your emotions and stop letting them use you.
