No, I agree with you: this is merely a matter of taste, like which
flower arrangement is the "best;" unless, of course you have prior agreement
on some standard, and even then there can be plenty of legitimate opinion.
That's not at all the same as a question like, "Does God exist?" for He
either does or does not: man's opinion has no effect on the matter one way
or the other. Although it may have plenty of effect on the man. ;-)
Nice to agree with you. Sort of.
