Mullah Nasrudin never argued as he knew that what
the "arguer" sought was confirmation of his beliefs
and not the Truth.
He once showed some students the value of an argument:
A student had asked:
"Does a slice of bread fall with the buttered side up or down?"
And Nasrudin answered:
"With the buttered side down, of course."
"No, with the buttered side up."
"Let's put it to the test."
So Nasrudin buttered a slice of bread threw it up in the air.
It fell-buttered side up!
"I win!" said the student.
"Only because I made a mistake,"
"I obviously buttered the wrong side."
