This is the second time I've seen you do this over this very idea.
Someone said that they would like to see a commercial where people from around the world would say "I am a human being" YOU answered THAT by in effect saying what you have said above. You acted like you dissagreed with her statement are you now saying it was just thread creep? Does the phrase Non Sequitur mean anything to you?
Yes. I think you have hit the nail on the head. cognitive dissonance, indeed.
