A nerve? No, I must have hit your spinal cord.

Too funny

You should listen to yourself - you think that is reasoned discourse? Just more invective, hand waving and psychobabble.

Again, nothing substantive.

let me repeat myself:

But drop me a note when you have something meaningful to say, just spare me the hectoring, please. It does not have the effect on of me that you evidently are looking for.

It is just nettlesome, I doubt that you could insult me.

Oh, an inclusive, "plural" use of the English pronoun "You" is quite acceptable, as you should well know. My meaning is clearly stated by my phrase:

Really, you evos and IDers.


You are just proving my point about how "you people" (perhaps you would prefer "Youse guys") with all of these attacks on anyone that disagrees with "you"in any form whatsoever. "You" may chose not to believe me, but "the public" finds this irksome. But go ahead, perhaps they will find "you" as impressive as you find "yourselves." (Note the plural usage here.)

You know, if you actually worked in an real, professional scientific institution and tried this tactic, you would get fired.

But then you would not know about that, now would you? (now here I mean it in the singular)

This is totally ridiculous. I am annoyed because in order to properly respond to your inanity I would have to go back and parse your original post and respond to each item, and none of it would have any substance to the debate at hand, because we would not be discussing the debate at hand, but rather your methodology. I will entertain this stupidity only briefly and leave at that.

When you begin statements with "do you really think" then you are attributing what follows to me, not to some abstract community of evolutionists in general. The answer is: no, I don't really think that, and never did, so go find someone who does and argue with them.

Then you compound that with this supercilious, condescending tactic of proclaiming that you don't really care about the discussion anyhow, so what does it really matter what the other person says in reply, because it's no big deal anyhow, and you weren't even talking to them anyway. You lump me in with some imagined community, attack me obliquely, and then expect me to either humor your tactics or just 'suffer' the attacks, even while declaring that it doesn't matter what I say anyhow.

But, as I always say, every problem has a solution! Check out the bottom of my profile page. Toodles!
