When you say "dogmatic religious lemming" or "you lack a basic scientific literacy", regardless of the truth value of your statements, you are not attacking my argument. You are attacking ME for presenting the argument. This is not okay, and doesn't prove anything. This is a forum for discussion, not insult matches.

I will be trying to reduce my tit-for-tat tendencies in order to practice what I preach. I'm not even expecting you to be nice for the sake of nicety. I want the arguments, not their owners, to be the focus; to do otherwise is not scientific.

It takes two to tango, dude. You've stepped on my feet too many times.

You are making an empty plea. It is up to YOU to demonstrate this, despite the insults you receive.

That's how real life works, dude.

Tu quoque.

You yourself stated that you look down on pissing matches. So why don't you practice what you preach?

I look down on shooting people too. If you take a shot at me, I have no problem shooting back.

Figure it out, dude.

Fine. But keep in mind that when I used tit-for-tat on IB's unprovoked attacks, you grumped at me. Double standards?

I didn't say anything until you took a shot at me.

I am holding you to a double standard now as your restitution. You have to be nice in the face of insults if you want me to take your apology seriously.

But once I did take a shot at you, you held me to a higher standard than IB in my discussion with him.

I'm not looking to make restitution anymore. Forget it. You've never had to make restitution and neither has IB. Tit for ****ing tat. I'll start making restitution when someone apologizes for being an arsehole. Until then, you can take your double standards and shove them in a dark cave.

Your choice. You've made it. Now live with it.

Yet again, I direct you to the "where moon landing hoax" page, in which I got a welcome that was quite characteristic of you and IB, after a first post that did not insult anybody but the insane moon-landing-hoaxers.

Denial on your part.

I gave you a clear explanation as to why I did not want to even be associated with self-declared "skeptics." You then became an ass.

You.

The problem always comes back to you. I'm not going to argue about it with you. I will just fire back in like kind and we can keep moving forward, in the muck or out. It'll be like Burger King. You can have it your way.

Ceist - I couldn't agree with you more. But when money and religion are involved, and there are people who value them above all else, then the lies begin. - trafn

You are completely misunderstanding their use of the word "accumulation"! - Climate Scientist.

IB STILL hasn't explained what Planck's Law means. Just more hand waving that it applies to everything and more asserting that the greenhouse effect 'violates' it.- Ceist

A clear explanation that was indeed - it very clearly showed me that you were an arsehole. You're the denier - you're denying that insulting people is arseholey, or that you insult people. (But no, jwood! I'm simply giving them the truth!) **** you.
