Stupid question: why would anyone need the external EVF when you can shoot with the built-in monitor?

I have a EVF on my LX and a Clearviewer on my ZS and I love using them both.  They are on the cameras all the time.  Personally, I just enjoy the viewfinder experience.  I have used a viewfinder for over fifty years on cameras, and although I use the LCD on my cameras some of the time, I like how I can better analyze a scene with the viewfinder. As Jack mentioned, I also like the additional benefit of stabilizing the camera in this position. A lot of people (younger?) are so used to seeing the world through an LCD, maybe its just not in their body memory the way it is for us old-timers. BTW, it's not a stupid question.
