The problem with dogma when it comes to Bali dogs is that it can remove open discussion open questioning and quell open enquiry. Thinking or believing that one knows everything about this unique canine or that one’s opinion is the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth leaves a very open case closed tightly shut indeed.
By all the Gods there’s so much unknown about the Bali dog. Scientifically highly intelligent pinheads are still trying to map how when and where their historical DNA lineage really originated from, why they fit into the scheme of ancient regional canine movements relative to land mass breakup and who their canine relatives may be or not be. Science is renowned for breaking down dogma by way of objective and sceptical methodology, arriving at a given surety only after mathematical proof, weight of evidence or logical argument is proven to be irrefutable. However, where humans are in control of all actioned components there is always the risk of ‘unintentional’ ego based dogma arising. Questions about the Bali dog from a science point of view must continue to be encouraged.
However what cannot be argued is that they are in fact Canis lupus familiaris, literal meaning is "friendly wolf dog." For the hordes of lay individuals who are just bent toward this type of canine, questioning anything and everything about the Bali dog is imperative. They and the Bali dog don’t fit the stereotype at all, apart from the fact that they are collectively indeed dogs and Bali dog addicts conjoined. So it really is up to all those crazy Bali dog people to religiously and dogmatically keep a very open mind about the Bali dog.
Forgetting that you know it all and listening loudly to what already is really can influence positive change.
