"You've picked the laziest "out" in the world "
No, the laziest "out" in the world is declare that your opinion is a fact and anyone who has a different opinion is a liar. If you can't at least get the point where you realize other people can honestly hold opinions you do not agree with then you will never be able to have a meaningful conversation with anyone but yes men (which wouldn't really be a meaningful conservation). There is nothing dishonest or lazy about calling an opinion and opinion no matter how much you dislike my doing so.
"I *did* just show you, and it sailed right over your head."
Wrong again. All you did was prepare to drag out a handfull of old straw men. I see no reason to go into debunking any of the specific straw men when you can't even tell what an opinion is in the more general case.

To: Grig; drstevej
Blah blah blah, dodge dodge dodge.
So here's the score:
Factual contents: ME = 1 GRIG = 0
Germane response: ME = 2 GRIG = 0
Lazy Dodges: ME = 0 GRIG = nothing but
Lovin' that Mormon logic (and other oxymorons).
