You said: “As for your assertion that dishonesty is not an inclination to lie, cheat or steal.... you really should consult a dictionary as it is certainly included in the definition.”

It is not the ONLY definition.

My statement is absolutely correct.

Allow me to correct you once again.

Your exact words in post 22 were:
dishonesty is NOT an inclination to lie, cheat, or steal

This statement is provably false. The dictionary states that the definition #1 for the word dishonesty is "an inclination to lie, cheat or steal". You can verify this at www.dictionary.com

You then later assert that it is not the ONLY definition. BTW, I never said it was the ONLY definition. This is known as the attempt to move the starting point in debating. You are attempting to have others look past your initial incorrect statement by making a slightly modified statement.

So in summary

Your first statement that the definition of dishonesty is NOT an inclination to lie, cheat or steal is in fact, in error. You second statement in the attempt to cover for the first where you assert that it is not the ONLY definition, while true, is a very weak attempt to cover for your first mistake.
