Really? How?

It was you that claimed the Constitution is based on Biblical principles. I merely asked you to demonstrate that, and stated that I don't think you can.

But then, your grasp on logical fallacies is very weak, as demonstrated by your continual use of them.

You mean like when you insisted that there was a logicality fallacy in my argument where I provided two arguments to whether or not the United Kingdom was a monarchy, yes or no?

And I slapped the snot out of you and you ran away?

Happy to pick that up again, my dear, the options of the two sided coin...

Yes, precisely that...where you exercise the fallacy of the excluded middle.

See, that was easy.

You really should try harder.

I already slapped the snot out of you on this.

There is no middle.

There is no 'a little bit pregnant'.

Where's that quote, Shug?

Your ankle bracelet, your arrest record, and the red circle on the map around your house seem to indicate you try.

Certainly: you can't prove you haven't.

Call your local university.

Speak to the Political Science department.

Ask one of the professors if the UK is a democracy.

I know what his/her answer will be, and it isn't the one you've been giving.

That sliver of doubt fuels the Godbot fantasies. Let's put it in perspective. Stated as a percentage, how certain are you that there is NOT a Universe farting supreme being floating around out there somewhere? I'm like so close to 100% that the difference ain't really worth fighting about. Is that not the case most of the time? Is a fractional percentage worth changing labels? I think not.

I did not ask what restís on your chinÖ bollocks you ignorant moron, you know absolutely nothing about what I am practising or how I see anyone and so because of your obvious lack of such knowledge, deliberate intelligence and misogynist indoctrination (probably in church) you fall back on guesswork. You can only be an inhibited christian closet gay boy woman hater with that famed well-balanced Ausi affliction of a chip on both shoulders? So we donít actually expect you top understand.
I'm not a Christian, so your opinion doesnt add up to anything does it?
Much like your entire worthless deadbeat life.

Tell me why you feel itís fine to ignore barfy butt breathís drippydick rants and abuses of Straa because he is Pakistani but when other people point this out and highlight drippydicks obvious failings you feel itís only right to attempt to rescue him? Oh I see now, you are new here and have not actually read the relevant posts but have simply jumped in on one. That would explain it.
I didnt know that Straa was a paki, dont care either for that matter.
Its your blantant obnoxious manner that I have issue with.

Your hatred of women indicates your mother beat you senseless while cuckolding your father (if you had one) before eloping with an illegal immigrant or Aboriginal guy for a better life. Oh wait a minute, surely it canít be that she left your father high and dry and holding the baby for another woman???
And where is my hatred of women?
Where is it demonstrated? Can you quote something I posted?
The only woman I have had issue with at this forum is you, so are you claiming that anyone who dislikes you in particular hates ALL women?
ChristineM wrote:
Could be your willingness to jump in and pick on the woman based on nothing more than you own deliberate ignorance?
Why do you refer to yourself in the 3rd person?
