logic and argumentation

I have often wondered whether our propensity for logic is rather terribly wasted on well-reasoned arguments, that get us nowhere, but closer to smugness, rather than logic used as a springboard to become lost in the wonder of the genius of the Creator. Were we really made to debate? Perhaps somewhat. But I don’t know anyone who was converted to something new by debate. On the contrary, I have met plenty who were further ensconced into their already cementing preconceived notions. To be won over, one must be moved by something beyond reason. Don't believe me by my argument, trust your past experience to know. And too, sometimes love and passion do the job right well enough more than logic alone ever could alone!
