Demallien, if you're prepared to use the voice of sweet reason with Avo then I wish you the best of success.
I truely mean that.
If Avo responded honesty then I would have let her go.
If she said that she doesn't HAVE a scientific understanding of ID or she just likes to hang out at UD to pick up guys then...fine. She's at least being honest and we can all move on. She can walk of into the sunset will all of her alien friends for all I care.
Yet she doesn't. The meaning of terms, coherent arguments, contradictions in her thinking have been patiently and laboriously laid out before her again and again. There's a difference between being someone who's ignorant/misinformed and and someone shoving their fingers in their ears going "La, la, la, you're a materialist, la, la, la, can't hear you, la, la, la, can't prove it to me, la, la ,la" etc. If somebody tried to pull that kind of crap on you at a debate or at a social gathering then you'd have every right to be offended. They are not behaving decently. They not being fair and honest. They're being offensive and bloody RUDE!
If you can get anything positive from her then more power to you.
I'm going back to lurking.
