|Louis, now child you need to close you mouth and pay attention when your betters are speaking. No man is created equal, or born as you suppose, in any sense but one and that one is debatable. Genetically, intellectually, socially, opportunistically, geographically, etc and on and on. You try to find a way that men are equal and I think you'll fall flat on your face. Course, there is one way, but I know you're not going there.|
Wow! Undeservingly patronising yet again!
Now go back and read what I wrote before:
|People aren't born equal? You mean some are god's chosen and some aren't? You mean something else? So you simply mean that Linford Christie's innate running abilities are better than mine? Because I don't think anyone will disagree with that. Equal in terms of value and worth Skeptic, two arbitrary human concepts. |
You and I were, as before, talking about different things. Interstingly this whole deal will end precisely where I predicted it will in another thread far far away, i.e. demonstrating the lack of any value the subjective has in any epistemological sense.
It may have been mentioned to your before Skeptic that you need to read what people have actually written, not what you think they have written. How many people have told you in a three page thread that you have failed to understand a simple point or have misconstrued their argument and run off to bash a straw man of your own imagining? It's a couple at least isn't it. Let that give you pause Skeptic. Think about it. Perhaps they are right, perhaps they are not, but at least consider the possibility that this is something you need to stop doing (i.e. stop going after what you think people are saying not what people are actually saying).
Oh and FYI Skeptic, yes indeed many of us (myself very much included) can be very rude to you and others. There is a reason for this: you (and others) make nonsensical, irrelevant or just outright dishonest statements. You refuse to back up your claims, refuse to engage any topic on anything approaching an intellectual level. We are at least rude with a point. You simply are being rude with no point, you aren't engaing what people are actually saying. Think on that. Maybe if you spent so me of that precious time thinking as opposed to regurgitating accusations you've made umpteen times now to no effect you'd make a coherent contribution. This might remove a huge quantity of snark from all sides of the equation. I may have suggested this before Skeptic. You ignored it then as you will undoubtedly do now, but try, you might be surprised. And given the level of abuse you chuck around pointlessly, I think you have no basis for your whining ot persecution complex. I'll offer again Skeptic: back up your claims, make reasonable arguments and you'll find that people can and will disagree with you perfectly amicably. Fail to do that and people will get pissed off with you.
It's all up to you as usual.
ETA: Hint: in the five point comedy gold for Skeptic, the point of which has been missed as usual, I've used two different meanings of the word "equal", let's see if Skeptic can understand the difference.
