They said Phatfart is a king with a control complex. Scientists say Phatfart was a god in his cult or merry Phatfart worshipers.

You said that you recognized that Thor was a god. You didn't say "Only the Viking thought Thor was a god".

You said that you recognized that Zeus was a god. You didn't say "Only the Greeks thought Zeus was a god".

If you want to retroactively change your position _AGAIN_, then explain to me why you don't use the "only they thought this" in EVERY instance?

Was Julius Caesar the leader of Rome? Or was it that "Only the Romans thought Julius was the leader of Rome."

Was George Washington President? Or was it that "Only the American alive during that time thought he was president"

Was Patton a General? Or was it that "Only the American soldiers in WWII thought that Patton was a General."

I've never tried to prove the existence of God on any forum.-Skeptic- is posting false information but probably doesn't know any better; he doesn't seem to be able to keep up with the argument.

I have attempted to prove there is no evidence for extraterrestrial life; that probably confused him. I won't call him a liar, even though I've pointed his error out on a previous post; because I don't use ad hominem arguments.

At least you admit that you only attempted and did not succeed, that's a start.

No I want you to use half the Vaseline to grease yourself up and assume the position and be ready for when I get a round tuit. Can't say when that will be but if you grab your ankles, you will be the first to know.

Don't worry, I already demonstrated him to be a liar. Oh, and you too, since you uh, DO actually use ad hominem arguments.

Dude is pointing out the error in Skippy's logic, in that Skippy has declared that if there isn't any scientific evidence for something then it doesn't exist.
In 1000AD, there was no "scientific evidence" for bacteria, therefore _by Skippy's argument_ bacteria didn't exist in 1000AD.
Dude is lampooning Skippy.
You would know that if you had read ANY of the last 250 pages.
Dude chose to post this, as it is. He gave no credit for it, to anyone else.

And in the quote above, you just wrote it. I can say that if I take everything else you are saying completely out of context.

So, why do you believe bacteria weren't real in 1000ad?

A lampoon? So, tell me which of his, or for that matter, your postings aren't lampooning? How about some small bit of designation for those post which are meant to be lampooning? Like maybe you and he, could start all of them with some flippant bit of obnoxious assholery. You know the type of idiocy that would leave no doubt, or would that defeat your goals of waffling on over to which ever side you weren't on a second or two ago?

Well done. You fell for a Skippy parody. Of course you would know this if you had taken part in this thread over the past few weeks.'Look before you leap' would be good advice here.
Parody, lampoon? It looked just like all of the rest of your posts. Finanagled into whatever it wasn't when it began.

Actually, I didn't write it. Did you not see the words"quoted text"?

Right now, you sound like a guy who has walked in during the middle of a movie and is complaining that he doesn't know what's going on.

You are the _only_ person on the thread who misunderstood what Dude was saying and why.

Why should ALL the rest of us change how we are doing things simply because you couldn't be bothered to read the thread in which you are trying to participate?

As I said, I'm taking your comments out of context. Much the way you are taking Dude's comments out of context.

In this case, I'm removing the "quoted text" context and assigning you the blame for writing it.

You removed Dude's comment from EVERYTHING that he has said and EVERYTHING that Skippy has said over the course of 300 PAGES of posts on this thread and COUNTLESS numbers of posts on several different threads.

Basically, you f'd up. Just apologize and get over it.

I read it exactly as it was written, seems like you two do quite a bit of this waffling.

Oh why bother with all that? Just say you did, and then it will be easier to backtrack later and claim you didn't.
Besides it is impossible for you to really change what I actually wrote, but you just go ahead on with that prevarication that you've got planned.

How so? Do you object to the proposition that Brian G is a Conservative political apologist? Do you object to the position that Skippy is a liar? Do you think either of these bozos are capable of making a coherent argument? Srsly?

Except I accept that bacteria are real. Skippy's position is that if there is no evidence for something then it does not exist, period. Pre-microscope there was no evidence of bacteria. Ergo under the Skippy scientific method they did not exist.
