Dismayed but not surprised by William J Murray:


No, we need to teach them there is a limit to the foolishness adults will tolerate; if they will not learn, then at least we have rid ourselves of the foolishness. Take a lesson from history: appeasement doesnt work.

Yes, appeasing the science geeks on an ID blog is a recipe for what? If we sense weakness, we'll... what? Starting posting charts and graphs? There's something deeply twisted about the idea that letting your opponents, or just those who have different beliefs post and debate is "appeasement".

OnEdit: forgot to mention who I was referring to.

In online debates, one is forced to agree with any arbitrary pronouncement made by the host, and if not one is being foolish? An odd cove. He has taken the morality debate to Elizabeth's site (I know you know). For a while he was prepared to bat it with others, but seems only interested in her viewpoint now.

But this
When one is so self-important that they cannot even force themselves to eat a little humble pie in the home of a gracious host, they are more than likely just gong to be an insufferable brat anyway.

Made me laugh in the context of this, to Elizabeth on her blog (and of course I'm quoting out of context!)
some observers agree that you do not argue in good faith.

Not him, obviously. Oh no. Just some other people that were worth mentioning at that point. Otherwise it would be bad manners.

BTW, when you make little jabs like “I thought basic logic was one thing UDers could handle,” you come off looking especially silly when you turn out to be wrong. - Barry Arrington
