StephenB lapses into the personal once again, and laments that UD moderation doesn't forbid kicking his ass up one side and down the other (which entails a change in movement, but isn't necessarily causal). But Diffaxial gets the last word:
|You ignore all my questions, misrepresent what I do say, and labor endlessly on irrelevant trivialities, apparantly in an attempt to create the illusion that you a presenting reasoned arguments, which you are not. Rather than accuse you of being dishonest for a second time on the same thread, I will simply assert that you are evading all the hard questions because you can provide no rational defense for your position. Evasion is permitted on this site, so there is nothing to be done about it.|
Since you have apparently decided to argue by attrition, getting in the last word would be important for you. So, I think I will grant it.
As usual, Diffaxial's is the more substantive comment.
ETA: StephenB then goes right on playing his broken record on another thread:
|The scientific method assumes those beliefs apriori and gains its legitimacy from them. The law of non-contradiction and uncompromised causality, for example, are two among many fundamental principles of right reason...|
