Kairosfocus: a counter offensive of 1,000 years ago before the reformation and its onward legacy of democratic transformation is irrelevant to current issues.
The last crusade in the Holy Land was less than 1000 years ago, the last crusade in Europe was even more recent.
But it is a case of a tainting red herring trifecta: red herring –> strawman, soaked in ad hominems –> set alight to cloud, poison, polarise and confuse discussion. A familiar destructive tactic too often used by advocates of evolutionary materialistic scientism.
Frequent contributors to this forum have called people they disagree with clowns, liars, fools, morons, idiots, agi-prop operators, delusional and a lot of other demeaning terms. I have had my own comments and arguments dismissed as such, many times. Darwin and Atheists are blamed for the Holocaust, Eugenics, slavery, etc. And I hardly ever see you or anyone else complain that such comments are clouding, poisoning, polarising and confusing discussion.
My hat is off to JVL, whoever he is. He remains calm and polite while the ID BSers look more and more like fools every time they post to him.
