Dogmatists need to remain ignorant of the vagaries of human brain ownership, because if you even understand a fairly small amount of them it's much much harder to be a dogmatist without recognizing you're being a fool.

and I'm confident that you don't see any irony in this - but I won't be dogmatic about it

You should work through that, actually (if not publicly).
 
I think you'll find the irony you see is an internal rather than actual thing.
 
But by all means, if you're so inclined, do go through that openly in here. You may also find there's less of a "Thing" here than you're probably thinking (i.e. the problem, if there is one, is the dogmatism, not necessarily the belief).
