Hi Dennis,  Finding a place to get into those discussions is no problem.  The problem is finding such a group where the participants also remain "respectful" of others opinions and thoughts.   Let me know if you find such a place.

I think that Roy Kelley gave an excellent answer.  I have had wonderful discusssion with bogs I have read and blogs I have written.  There are many very smart people on AR. 

Franky we prefer this type of thinkers on a face to face basis....A

ditto to what Roy Kelley said.... and this is NOT the site to be sensitive... it's not personal...take it all with a grain of salt or sling it back...tough skin... keep asking questions....if some are stiff armed with you, use the right move and dodge that arm.... this CAN BE A CONTACT SPORT.... AND YOU'LL NEED TO SLING IT BACK.... never give in...

Maybe we should have a group for that!  I think that a lot of topics are a little bit taboo, including the most interesting one out there at the moment!

Good question Dennis, going beyond RE is not an option in this part of AR anymore, but you can have a discussion in your blog and blog comments like this.

As far as in a bar, most of those philosophers in the bar are just mouths fueled by alcohol, not as much real thought as should be put into a meaningful conversation.  Perhaps a coffee shop or cafe would be a better option.

RE office or blog site is the wrong place. We have one talktive agent. He is looking for a referral or networking opportunities. After 10 years in the business he bought a 300K condo and brags like a pro. I hope he moves on to a different place soon.
