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.

Yes or no, SuperFAG.

Happy to see the QUOTE where you said you were **WRONG** instead of saying that you made a 'grammatical error'.

Like the way I keep posting EXACT quotes and proving you are full of cr@p.
I am sure it must be annoying.
Especially when you try to do the same thing and have to instead post paraphrases of what you insist I must mean.
Far from it; on the contrary you respond to snippets of my posts, usually cutting them off mid sentence, while ignoring the other 95 percent.

I, on the other hand, respond to yours word for word, line for line, post for post.

Facts are facts, manchild.

You never mentioned "in WWII"; you simply said that the Reichstag was democratically elected but was still not a democracy.

Thus, you were talking about Germany pre-1934, before the Nazis eliminated democratic elections. So, if the Weimar republic was not a democracy, then what was it? "Not a monarchy" is in the same vague answer league as saying "not a frog" or "not a space station".

It is based on the logic you use and your refusal to answer my questions.

You have claimed that as Britain can be defined as a monarchy, it cannot be defined as a democracy. It is -exactly- like saying that as Einstein can be defined as a male, he cannot be defined as German, scientist, etc.

I ask you to address this. You refuse to.

Conclusion?

Manchild thinks that things can only be defined by one word.

Let me make it even simpler for you to understand: since you can be defined as a manchild, you cannot be defined as an American.

Your logic, your rules.

Now he tries to pretend it turns on "constitutional monarchy".

Isa the UK a monarchy, yes or no?

Wipe your chin!
Are mammals A and B the same? Are nationalities the same? Are all cars the same?

No answers, no substance, no argument. Manchild logic fails like that.

Yes or no, SuperFAG.

When did I lie about being wrong?

When are you going to admit to being wrong about politics degrees and universities? Or the Weimar republic not being a democracy, then changing your argument to include "in WWII"? Or being wrong about all things being the same under umbrella terms? Or that things can only be defined by one word?

You are again demonstrating that you have no idea what you are arguing against.

I am not denying that differences exist between umbrella terms, in this case, mammals and fish.

what I am saying, manchild, is that when we look into the variants within umbrella terms - ie, between mammals like monkeys, horses, dogs, etc, we distinctive differences that lead to further sub-divisions within that family.

In other words, you cling to "monarchy". Your own sources call Britain a Constitutional monarchy specifically because our system of government - complete with the Queen at the top - is significantly different to other monarchies such as in Saudi Arabia.

Yet by your stupid logic of having to look at only the umbrella term, you act as if these differences are non-existant.

All monarchies are the same.

All mammals are the same.

All fish are the same.

That is the point. That is what you cannot refute. That is why your argument fails.

It cannot be any more obvious that you deny that Britain is a Constitutional monarchy. That is why you keep asking if we have a Constitution or not.

Heck, let's play your own game:

Is Britain a Constitutional monarchy? Yes or no?

I am not inventing your silence - and that is what is giving your game away.

Accept it, little boy: you think if you say nothing I cannot prove that you think Britain is not a Constitutional monarchy.

That would make the UK a monarchy.

Not from where I stand. Atheists make their views known as much as everybody else. In fact, they are often more aggressive about what they DON'T believe in than most other people are about everything they DO believe in.

Do you think that guilt is proven only by the words of the accused? You have dropped your demands like a hot potato as soon as I provided you with the links you asked for without even acknowledging as such. That, alone, demonstrates that you were flat out wrong regarding universities not handing out degrees in politics.

If your new game is "you need to have a quote to prove it!", then there are a lot of criminals out there needing released tomorrow morning.

Either:

1) You did not read my posts complete with links;

2) You ignored the links;

3) You read the links, ignored the content, and are pretending as such.

Which is it? Because I am not going on a wild goose chase when you are not going to play ball.

Yes, umbrella term. I am sorry for over-estimating your intellectual capabilities, but just because manchild has not heard of certain terms and phrases does not mean that those terms and phrases do not exist.

In Barefootland, there are no dogs, cats, horses, lions - only mammals.

In Barefootland, there are no Germans, Americans, Italians, Frenchmen - only nationalities.

In Barefootland, there is no romance, thriller, action, horror, comedy - only genres.

Manchild logic, manchild rules. Deal with it, little boy.

Also: what was the Weimar republic if it was not a democracy?

What -is- a democracy?

Come on, expert, answer these questions.
