In America, atheists are still in the closet

So do many other interest and identity groups. Complaint is our political lingua franca: it's what Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Wall Street titans, religious and irreligious people share.

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.
sweden is a representative democracy

See, you ARE engaging in the fallacy of the excluded middle. It is possible for a country to be both. As both Sweden and the UK testify to.

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.
Yet another logical fallacy...that because one example fits your assertion, EVERY example fits your assertion.

So...the mammals known as beagles are dogs, therefore every mammal must be a dog. How silly.

An edge is not a side.

But I am a sport: you start flipping a coin now. when you get that coin to land and stand on it's edge on a flat surface, I'll stop posting on this thread.

Until you do: you agree to stop posting here.

Agreed?

Let me know: happy to work out the details...

Thanks for continuing to post as a NotBot such silly assertions that belong entirely to you.

A person is or is not pregnant.

There is not a third option.

It is like the QUOTE is or is not a quote- and how I proved you a liar above.

Even when presented with a silly example of the "logic" you are using...and you agree with the silliness of that position...you fail to see that your original position is just as silly.

Sad. Truly sad.

Where you fail is that not everything is a two sided coin.

Poor NotBot: unable to back his own assertions, he falls once again to making the straw man.

Of course, I never asserted everything is a two-sided coin.

Of course- you lack the ethics to quote me and you can (have and will gain) change whatever it I said to something else.

Reminding you that I proved you to be, again, a liar

What I said:
(quote)
"There is no middle ground, there is no range of choices."
(/quote)

What you claimed I said (and do notice the quote marks):

(quoted:)
A perfect example of the Excluded Middle fallacy - particularly amusing since you just admitted that there IS a "range of choices".

(/quote)

Now we have you insisting that I said everything is a two-sided coin...

Sorry but that statement is simply not true. There are ranges of monarchies.

For example
United Kingdom is a constitutional monarchy and Commonwealth realm. The Queen doesn't wield any real power

Saudi Arabia is a monarchy. King ABDALLAH bin Abd al-Aziz Al Saudhas all the power
