I don't pretend to be greater than the sources you cloak your failure in. I am just greater than you. But to be honest, that does not require much effort.

You may, or may not, be correctly quoting (some) great men, but that does not mean that you are quoting them in context, that you have the slightest understanding of what it is they were actually saying nor indeed that you understand anything at all that you spout on about. The only puffed-up pretender here is a sad little would be maths teacher from Richardson Texas. Anyone you know, maybe, Eugene?

1. That they are great men is an assertion and an opinion.

2. History has (historically) been written by second hand accounts. This renders history to be only as good as it's uncredited sources.

3. The "great men" you are quoting do not agree with your contentions.

4. Reference to a "puffed-up pretender" is yet another example of your projection.

You seem to want to fight by proxy and not get your own hands soiled.

Please don't evade my question. Who is more authoritative and more credible among the majority of the world's greatest scholars, the dissents I cite at everythingimportant.org (which includes Peter Duesberg, Noam Chomsky, John Pilger, Paul Craig Roberts, et al) or all my critics at topix?

The issue is not who you cite. I routinely cite Jesus, Buddha, Gandhi, Lao Tzu, Einstein..... Should I regard your criticism of me as criticisms of them? By no means! The issue at hand (actually long decided) is that of your full sanity (such as it isn't).

And I am quite certain that Chomsky, were he to read your website, would be the first in line to testify at your competency hearing as a witness for the state.

Your statement, full of confidence, confirms your ignorance. No doubt you are uneducable. If you ever become able to learn anything truthful about Chomsky, there is a Chomsky documentary at everythingimportant.org where Chomsky defends the right of an irrational French scholar to teach that the Holocaust never happened.

Chomsky is obviously intensely anti-state when it comes to the French government's limits on the freedom of speech.

He states the scholar has the right to teach what he wants (freedom of speech), NOT that the scholar is correct nor even rational.

My confidence comes from years of dealing with people who have mental illnesses. I have seen it before and it looks just like you, i.e. Delusional Disorder - Grandiose type.

As I have covered Delusional disorder, let me point out the specific symptoms of the 'Grandiose type'.
"persistent feelings of grandiosity. These types are frequently egoistic in nature. They move about daily with the conviction that they have great unrecognized talent or some special ability that simply hasn't yet been acknowledged by the wider community. Signs that a person may be suffering from grandiosity include:

The person believes that they have an undiscovered or special gift or talent or they have made an amazing discovery that others don't get...."

http://www.wikihow.com/Recognize-Delusional-D...

If you would prefer quotes from DSM-IV TR I will gladly provide them.

Not that you will suddenly believe me and go out and seep professional help. If you did that you would not meet the criteria for delusional disorder!

By definition you will argue against the facts and continue to rationalize your belief system.

I have nothing bad to say about Chomsky. This is an attempt to divert attention away from yourself.

By quoting famous people you are attempting to rationalize the idea that you are as great as they are because you agree with them.

Thus so, I quoted Jesus, does that put me on par with the son of God?

But you have spoken evil against Chomsky. However, since you don't know what evil is, even when looking at a mirror, you remain in the very depth of ignorance.

More delusional ideation. You need to vilify anyone who disagrees with you.

Very typical of persons with your disorder.

Yes, I am having fun telling you have a psychological disorder. But you have the disorder regardless of if I tell you or not.

I think he has you nailed down tight Shubee Doo. You have a disorder or two. That you can't see it is true. Over the Cuckoo's nest you flew.

To admit your failings will never do. No one can see the great you that is you. An ego soaring high over this huminary stew. Shubee Doobee Doo.

To borrow your line: Who is more authoritative and more credible among the majority of the world's greatest scholars AS IT PERTAINS TO BIOLOGY?

99.9% of all scientific professionals in relevant fields?
Or yourself?
