Buck, if I only quoted Darwin to support Darwin, you would be chastising me for circular reasoning...and rightly so.
But your demented little brain thinks that quoting Barton to support Barton is not circular reasoning.
You are assuming Barton is true. You then argue using Barton to "prove" that point. That is EXACTLY circular reasoning.
<Buck strikes out again.>
You childish Dumbass, Barton is answering criticism. He factually refutes the charges of Throckmorton and others WITH PROOF.

That is not "circular reasoning. Circular reasoning is not using a person to support himself. Circular reason is a chain of propositions which ends where it started.

"A is true because B is true; B is true because A is true."

Citing a person's defense is not circular reasoning, and it is not reasoning at all. It is providing the third person's reasoning. It is citation of evidence from the person.

I don't have time to educate you about every subject.

Any chance of foreging more talk about Crockthornton and discussing in depth the motives and agenda of the obstreperous atheist prevaricators?

There is little mention of "marriage" at all in the OT.
Adam and Eve were never "married" which makes the entire human race bastard children.
It is argued that 'Martha and Mary' were a lesbian couple and just as "married" as most hetrosexualss of the time.
Martha and Mary were sisters,(family).

Buck...
It has been almost a year and a half since Barton made the claim that the Jefferson Lies was to be published by Simon & Schuster.
Go to Simon & Schuster and search for the book. It isn't there. It isn't even on their list of books to be published.
In September, Chris Rodda asked the question, "Where is That Simon & Schuster Edition of The Jefferson Lies That David Barton Has Been Promising?"
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/chris-rodda/whe...
It wasn't there in September. It is there now.
It appears that Barton has prevaricated once again.
Warren Throckmorton's website says Simon and Schuster is in partnership with Mercury Ink to distribute the book.

Are you calling Throckmorton a prevaricator?

Do you recall what publishing house accepted and published Throckmorton's book refuting Barton, "Getting Jefferson Right"??

Barton's book is a best-seller. Do you know how many of Throckmorton's have been sold?

Ran across a couple of reviews of Throckmorton's "Getting Jefferson Right" on Amazon's customer reviews:

"Author spends entirely to much time and effort to criticize someone else's work. After these criticicisms the author makes grand statements followed by a diatribe filled with unrelated events and little to no credible evidence of their remark. It is clear that this author was more interested in smearing the reputation of another person rather than presenting a fact based historical narative."

"I read this book and David Bartons book The Jefferson Lies.. I found Mr. Bartons book to be far more accurate and informative.
Did a little research on both men, appears to me Mr. Throckmorton has a very intense personal dislike toward Barton, however Barton doesn't seem to return that same dislike to Throckmorton.
I used google books to read the original writings of Jefferson, seems to me Barton gives a far more accurate account of Jefferson."

You can't make this stuff up.
All numbers are connected to the number one. Without the number one you don’t have the following numbers. I know it's hard for you to understand. "One"....."two "......"three". ......

You are still quoting Barton to prove Barton, whether or not you consider it Barton answering criticism. Come up with someone credible responding to the criticism of Barton. Like someone that really has a degree in history. You have failed completely to do that.

You might note that so far all you have accomplished is to convince fence sitters that Barton really has no credibility. You have failed on an epic scale in you attempt to defend Barton.

Someone says Barton has no credibility and gives evidence of Barton's distortions. Barton replies Yes I do and here is the (distorted) evidence I presented earlier to prove it." That is so convincing...NOT.

Yeah. I'm almost done.

Take this hint:

If you ever want to be a public personality and sell books, DO NOT cross the militant gay smear industry.

What happened to David Barton is like the scene in True Grit where the donkey is tied to the porch and the two boys are poking him with sharp sticks. Jeff Bridges, rightfully, slaps them off the porch.

Pretty much a cave dweller, in my view.
But oh gosh, you're trying to be a better person, I know. You're climbing up that tough learning curve. We have to be understanding--as the West Side Story line goes, you're depraved on account of you were deprived.
Thanks for showing off your bigotry towards the poor.

You're a piece of work, man...
