Honey, racism is predominantly a christian trait, one thing I am definitely not is racist (another thing I am not (any linger) is christian). I assume you donít actually see the hypocrisy in calling me racist for using the word black to describe a black man while you used exactly the same word to describe me as racist. You also need to learn that back and white are not racist terms but in this case descriptions of skin tone. Now had I used the N word in the same way that barfy butt breath uses the P word then you would have had a case, but I didnít.
I believe you are racist because of how you see blacks and black men in particular.
If you are saying that colour terms only apply to skin colour then you cannot call me racist or a hypocrite.
Who am I being racist against?
Africans such as congoids or capoids? Tigrayans? Or Tongans? What about Tuaregs (some of them could be called black)?

If there is one thing you should learn about topix itís this. It is a public thread and if some stupid godbot slags off someone else then they can expect reprisals. If you donít like it then tough, either be a good christian and donít slag of what you are incapable of understanding or p|ss off
As I previously stated I am not a Christian, the rest of your rant is simply bellyaching.

FYI, Hitler was christian.
Which Australians?
Australian is a nationality.....are you referring to just whites or to Aboriginals too?
Or dont they count because theyre.... black?

FYI, Hitler was most likely a Deist.
He believed in divine providence, he did not believe in Jesus as most Christians would.

You are the one who brings up the issue of white wives running off with blacks

Besides ... even the scientists, mathematicians, educated folk and various flavors of egghead say we can't be 100% certain of anything. What's the point of all the discussion then? Armed with all the observational and theoretical tools of modern science and we still can't be certain of anything? Fine then.

PS: Sweden is a monarchy. the United KING_dom is a monarchy.

There isn't "range" of monarchies anymore than there is a range of 'tails' in a flip of a coin- it is either a tails or it isn't.

Well, there is that, of course. I am also reasonably certain that I was born. That makes 2 things. I'm not certain that all this uncertainty is warranted.

Excluded Middle Fallacy, again.

Why is it that you seem to consider such fallacies to be unanswerable arguments?

They're not.

Oh, and look up the difference between "debate" and "contradiction" - you're on the wrong side of that fence, too.

Of course you don't want to address your lie- the misquote- above.

It isn't something that is debateable.

You lied.

I cannot help you do not know what a excluded middle fallacy is.

And the first condition of a excluded middle fallacy is: there is more than two conditions, i.e., a third.

A country is or is not a monarchy.

A flip of a coin results in either a heads or a tails.

No matter how hard you stomp your feet...

And you are a liar, BTW.

Of course, we can further demonstrate what the "excluded middle" fallacy is by using what a quote is and isn't.

A quote is the exact words of a person as they were said or written. To add or delete (to change) what a person said or wrote and attempt to pass it off as a quote is of course a lie.

So either something is a quote, or it isn't a quote.

This doesn't require your agreement, by the way.

If you try to pass off something as a quote (specifically when it is marked as such) and it isn't EXACTLY the same, then it isn't a quote.

There is no middle ground, there is no third option. There is no fallacy in asking whether or not something was or was not a quote.

Range.
There is no range in the state being a monarchy, dullard. There is a range in the power that the monarch can exercise.

You do remember this?
mon∑ar∑chy
[mon-er-kee] noun, plural mon∑ar∑chies.
1. a state or nation in which the supreme power is actually or nominally lodged in a monarch. Compare absolute monarchy, limited monarchy.
Do try to note that an absolute monarchy and a nominal monarchy are- and this seems to be the tricky part for you- MONARCHIES.

PS: Thanks for providing me the opportunity again to prove you t0o be a liar.
