I'm beginning to think you wouldn't know the difference.

You made a claim that science proves things.
Give us an example of an experiment which would prove something.

... and I presented links that oppose your claim. Just because you wanted to ignore them doesn't make them go away, nor does it make them wrong.

I posted several links, you ignored them and began ad homs, now you want me to post those links again? You are either insane or think I am. I am not. Go back to the post you didn't actually address, or are you just too lazy? Don't provide evidence that stereotypes of male laziness are accurate, that would not bode well.
I've made it a policy not to chase links for the following reasons:
1) The person posting the link often hasn't read the website but is expecting others to read it.
2) If you post a link to some bit of evidence and then I post a link to a response, no one is actually seeing the argument, just a collection of links.
3) I'm not in a debate with whoever wrote the article to which you are linking, so there's no point debating it.

If you have an argument to make, then make it. In your own words. Here for all to see.

Big surprise, you're a conservative. Knew that from your argument that Jesus is the only god that counts.
Now, if you'd like to provide a single example of the conservative movement achieving anything, I'd be happy to see it:
So far, the record goes:
Civil War - fail
Equal Rights for blacks - fail
Equal rights for women - fail
Remove Clinton from office - fail
Ban minorities from voting in key states - fail
Remove Obama from office - fail
Ban evolution from schools - fail
Yeah, you guys are batting a million so far.

There is no god, only me and my dog.
There are equal rights, you have the right to whine.
I believe in your repetitive stupidity.
It's mind over matter, I don't mind that you don't matter.

Frankly, I expect nothing from you. The fact that continue to click "post comment" leads me to believe you have someone there helping you

Meaning basically that the entire Conservative movement has been a total failure, so much so that you can't even defend your political leanings with one (1) example of something positive Conservatives have accomplished.

But isn't this so much fun? You present a pointless point, I show how pointless it is, then you respond with ad homs and crybaby antics.

Wow, talk about revisionist history.

Let's review.

You made the incorrect claim that science proves things.
Dude and I corrected you saying that science can not prove things, but rather disproves things.

You disagreed.
I outlined an experiment which demonstrates science's ability to disprove something and asked you to do the same for your claim.

You started talking about my penis.

Until you present an argument and evidence to support it, ALL discussion is going to be ad hom because you believe it's ad hom to say "you aren't presenting an argument".

You refused to read the links I provided that support my view, that's on you, not on me. It makes you a liar to state I didn't present evidence just because you didn't read it.

I am a conservative, fiscal conservative to be precise. I agree with less government, less bans and regulation in other words, less taxes is nice if we can get a government that can actually budget and won't waste $10,000 on a toilet seat for an outhouse in the barracks of a needless war. Or waste money on an endless, and pointless, "war" on drugs. Or allow religious nonsense in schools, on our money, and in the pledge of allegiance. But meh, I guess things change and conservative now means something completely different, but I'm still keeping it real.

I should have been more specific. There are no conservatives in politics. Especially when it comes to spending other people's money.

That's certainly true. The closest we had was Ron Paul, look what happened to him.

I was hoping that Gary Johnson would have gotten 5% of the vote so we could at least move away from a two party system.

Right now, anything different would be a nice change.
