KF to gpuccio:
GP: Sometimes it amazes me that you are writing in a second language and many of the objectors are writing in their first. KF

Really? I suspected as much- well most likely I knew it and just forgot. Amazing indeed. But that does explain some things like the choice of wording.

Joe truly is the stupidest person on the Internet.

It amazes me that KF is writing in his first language.

It is a curiously Anglophone trait to be gobsmacked at the facility a foreigner may have in English - typically, English-speakers are particularly shit at foreign languages, and assume everyone else must be too. I experience that surprise myself, when an endless supply of accented pundits pop up on the radio with perfect, idiomatic and technical English, or when travelling and finding that the entire populace appears to be much better at my language than I am at theirs.

Nonetheless, GP's argument is not very coherent, however English his excellent.

Yes. I've never seen a 'Darwinist' criticize gpuccio's English -- just his arguments.

And the set of natural numbers is also the set that starts at 0 and goes to the largest number.  -- Joe G

Please stop putting words into my mouth that don't belong there and thoughts into my mind that don't belong there. -- KF
