You childish Dumbass, Barton is answering criticism. He factually refutes the charges of Throckmorton and others WITH PROOF.<quoted text>
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.>
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.
