I will deal with the politics first and then with the science in another comment.
|I have no idea when or what that first instance was, TP, except that it occurred before I was banned. Can we agree that TT is not nearly as tolerant as you have repeatedly claimed them to be?|
Actually, I have loudly questioned MikeGene about whether or not Telic Thoughts lives up to its About Us declaration multiple times.
Yes, but elsewhere, you have touted TT as tolerant.
|I have even pointed out the biased treatment of the Smokey verses Bradford discussions. I felt you two were opposite sides of the same coin.|
What sort of coin?
|Jam, it is obvious that you have a biased opinion of Telic Thoughts. Based on your actions here, I would have to agree it would not be in Telic Thoughts best interest to reinstate your privileges.|
So what? That seems obvious, since they seem to be far more interested in shield-bashing than in discussing science.
|If you actually wanted to come back, you missed an opportunity.|
What makes you think I wanted to come back?
|It would have been relatively easy to convince me that you were unfairly treated if you tried.|
What makes you think that I was trying to convince you?
|Had you done that, I would have tried to make the case that Telic Thoughts could use more balanced discussions. Besides, I liked "Smokey". I might have had a chance, but now, with the way you chose to approach this, I don't see how it would be remotely possible.|
I don't think you would have had a chance.
|As it is, it looks like the shield bashing games will continue. After the Bar Closes will be smug in their presumption that ID proponents are arrogant and unreasonable.|
It's not a presumption.
I'm not willing to be as obsequious as you are to the TT crowd. Let's do science!
Or do you have too much invested in this microtubule hypothesis to discuss it with someone who knows something about the neuronal cytoskeleton?
