thank you Brad for pointing out the error.
It wasn't an error, it was tit for tat. Not everything a person says is said with the same level of seriousness. And, indeed, you are taking it upon yourself to do a little bit to influence the future of the species, putting out ideas that they may influence others to re-evaluate. it may not be your problem or your responsibility, but it appears to be one of your concerns.
I find it bizarre that someone who utterly doesn't understand what I am saying praises my perspective for being intelligent and thoughtful.
Disagreement does not require misunderstanding. I understand what you have said here.
Also, that I find you generally intelligent and thoughtful does not mean I find every perspective you have to be so. See: your promotion of the inmhendam line that everyone who can conceive of a reason for perpetuation of sentience must believe in some transcendent or otherwise mystical reason. While not the stupidest thing I have ever seen, it is an incredibly stupid claim.
