He posts on more than one thread. I assumed that he meant that he had posted new material on *this* thread.

I went back 4 pages on this thread and can't find any postings you've made about intelligent design. If you think you've got something new to post, post it.

Then by all means, prove your above statements. And while you're at it, prove that all those holy theists care for more than their own petty lives--if you wish for discussion.

Crap! Sorry, about that, had a few with some friends and the inhibitions are completely gone. They're all too ugly to scruw so I came home, maybe I'll go back and do one of them and imagine it's you Mike, I could use a good earth shattering orgism.
Then again it'd probably be safer drinking myself to sleep, the last thing I think of tonight will be your sweet smile.
