    Ugh! More belabored BS. You do know I have the total right to ignore you don't you? That you can't ban me for that, right?

    Once again, you throw a temper tantrum - you can't win, so you're going to stomp your feet, kick your legs, scream and pout, and threaten to ignore the person you can't beat...

    Courtesy of Merriam Webster:

    Full Definition of STUPID
    1a : slow of mind : obtuse
    b : given to unintelligent decisions or acts : acting in an unintelligent or careless mannerc : lacking intelligence or reason : brutish

    2: dulled in feeling or sensation : torpid <still stupid from the sedative>

    3: marked by or resulting from unreasoned thinking or acting : senseless <astupid decision>

    4a : lacking interest or point <a stupid event>

    b : vexatious, exasperating <the stupid car won't start>

    So... by what you have just said... you are calling billvon a four year old...

    Should I report that for ad hominem?

    I'm totally serene right now. I just don't think I have to put up with your constant flaming attacks on me in lieu of you actually debating your position convincingly.

    Your position has been debated to death, and you were proven quite concisely wrong - your response to that was, in essence, to stick your fingers in your ears and shout at everybody that they are wrong. You have, in this one thread, attempted to redefine words and phrases, deflected arguments you couldn't defeat, ignored evidence, failed to provide supporting evidence, repeatedly claimed you were being victimized when you realized your position was untenable, and the list goes on.

    Were this a courtroom, you would have been found in contempt and locked up for disrupting the proceedings. Were this an academic setting, you would have been laughed out the door. Were it any professional setting, you would have been asked to leave.

    Uh no. I don't think Billvon is 4 years old. And I didn't say he was either. In fact, I doubt Billvon even goes around calling "things" stupid. I think he's just trying to argue for a point.

    But you said, and I quote:


    Given that Billvon just said:

    And you just said:

    and
    So, by what you have said: You saying that "stupid is an adjective 4 year olds use", and the fact that you feel calling someones argument something (since an argument is not a conscious entity) is the equivalent of calling the person something...

    Yeah, you just called Billvon a four year old...

    Or, is this a double standard that only applies to you when it behooves you to have it apply to you?

    No..saying 4 year olds use the adjective "stupid" alot doesn't imply adults who use it are 4 years old. It merely means they have something in common with 4 year olds. Can you make that distinction?

    I do indeed, as do a great many people. The 1976 Buick Skyhawk required you to remove the engine to replace the spark plugs. That was a stupid design - and most people I have talked to have agreed.

    Nope, because there is no distinction to make - thank you for admitting your double standard

    You said "stupid is as stupid does" and I said, and say again. "If the cap fits, wear it" :shrug:

    From what I have seen in this thread and others, you actually fit the definition of paranoid.

    Another insult. What does your opinion of how I am have to do with the topic of this thread? Does insulting me make you feel better about yourself somehow?

    No..you said I made a stupid claim. That's calling me stupid. Own it.

    Sure thing...You did not just make a stupid claim, you made a very stupid and dishonest claim, that you in reality did just to get a raise out of the general people you find on a science forum.
    Just so you are unable to once again misinterpret or gloss over, I'm speaking of the Idiotic claim, that science has never benefited mankind....or words to that effect.

    You made the claim
    "I'm totally serene right now. I just don't think I have to put up with your constant flaming attacks on me in lieu of you actually debating your position convincingly".
    Sounds like paranoia to me.:shrug:
    Just as your opinion of the supernatural, ghosts, goblins, fairies etc, based on hearsay, obscure videos, blurry u tube, and other hair brained scenario, without any concrete evidence, leaves itself open for derision and rebuke.

    It's one thing to be ignorant, but willful ignorance IS stupid.

    No it doesn't. You have the total choice to insult or not. And that's what you do. And you are morally responsible for that. It is the only way you can "win" an argument. Belittle and mock them instead of offering anything persuasive.

    Yes, this is a great example of that and the general methodology used by a lot of anti science nuts.
