  1. Re: "When you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims"

    You were not challenged to support the relevance of Muslims in the US. You were challenged to support that the argument for the Muslim threat to Americans be RESTRICTED TO Muslims living in the US....

    Poll: Re: Is the human fetus an human being?

    Back at you.



    Which, of course, doesn't mean it's only scientific in nature. Humans existed as essentially what they are long before there was any science.

    Re: Pro-Life Exceptions for Rape and Incest

    You're obligated by rule to respond to the challenge with the necessary support no matter what. So do it already. Or don't, and wait for the ruling on your refusal. Either way is fine by me.

    Re: Pro-Life Exceptions for Rape and Incest

    No, you wouldn't have, because there is no response except to drop your absurd claim, and you're clearly not going to do that even after being officially challenged.



    The truth is I can't help...

    Don't you just hate it when you have to reach this far down in the barrel to get a bruised apple? What you've just demonstrated for me is not so much something that could have been better in my...

    Re: Pro-Life Exceptions for Rape and Incest

    I don't give people my respect. They have to earn it. I put the bar pretty low for earning my respect, and you've just never come up to it. Nothing particularly "weird" about that.



    No,...
  7. Re: Doesn't Neanderthal and Human interbreeding disprove God exists?

    I know. That's what I'm asking for - your opinion on how that additional option added anything to, or subtracted anything from my argument.

    Re: Same-Sex marriage is bad for the Children!!!

    Which I think Ibelsd is taking as the claim that proposition is true, and would like to see some reason from you for thinking so.

    I give it equal points for vulgarity, but mine has a play on words too, so I win, I win! :smitten:

    Poll: Re: Is the human fetus an human being?

    I'm afraid I still don't understand your criticism. It sounds to me as if you're saying without including the entire article I can't meet your "ideal" criterion. But that can't be what you're...
  12. Re: Doesn't Neanderthal and Human interbreeding disprove God exists?

    Yeah, I got that much. What I don't get is how this adds or subtracts from the section of my argument you quoted in giving me this other interpretation of Genesis' account of creation. Can you help...

    Re: Pro-Life Exceptions for Rape and Incest

    I'm afraid this pathetic little tactic isn't going to work. First of all, there is no rule about treating your debating opponents with respect, only that no one indulge in ad hominem argumentation;...
  14. Re: Doesn't Neanderthal and Human interbreeding disprove God exists?

    I have to ask: what gave you the idea I was saying Genesis has to be wrong, or that if its symbolic (however you're using that word) it's thereby saved from being wrong?
  15. Re: Doesn't Neanderthal and Human interbreeding disprove God exists?

    @Squatch

    Okay, I'm still lost, having now read JJ's OP (thank you). First, I can't identify a logical train of thought in the OP. The OP starts off reasonably enough, reporting that there is...

    Re: The Crimea to Join Russia - Why Not?

    What is not clear is the identity of these violent protestors. If they are people who have long lived in the Ukraine, then fine. But if they are imported Russian activists, then no, not fine.

  19. Re: Doesn't Neanderthal and Human interbreeding disprove God exists?

    They are given as God's creative action. My point is to understand them as temporally contiguous, as opposed to temporally simultaneous, one has to find that somewhere in the context of the verse,...
  20. Re: Doesn't Neanderthal and Human interbreeding disprove God exists?

    Ehhh...not really "Socratic". I imagine the Socratic method requires the one asking the questions to already know the answers. The Socratic method is a "teaching" method for the one asking the...

    Granted, but to what purpose? The point of my appeal to the source was not to suggest that the people of Crimea or even Eastern Ukraine don't have any right to break away from Ukraine and join...
  22. Re: Doesn't Neanderthal and Human interbreeding disprove God exists?

    Okay, it's important we keep the context clear in which you said, or rather in which you asked the rhetorical question you did: "How were the sodomites going to rape/"know" the two angels if they...

  25. Re: Doesn't Neanderthal and Human interbreeding disprove God exists?

    But that doesn't really help fill in any gaps. To do that we'd have to know a great deal more than we do about Neanderthals (there is little solid evidence Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon ever interbred,...
  26. Re: Doesn't Neanderthal and Human interbreeding disprove God exists?

    A further important point Mr. Hyde seems to be assuming that is very probably not the case, is that each time it is said that someone begets someone else, it is just one generation. Ancient semitic...

    I think your description above omits more relevant Crimean history than it recognizes.

    For just one example, what about the fact that Russia recognized Crimea as an integral part of Ukraine in the...

    Who said they didn't have physical bodies? What I fail to see is how the fact that they did have physical bodies works against anything I've said.
