I don't remember anyone asking you for your credentials. They trashed you *before* you gave them. You originally said you got tired of people saying you didn't have the qualifications you claimed. So it was your choice to provide them to prove it rather than someone asking for them.<quoted text>
My training in history and anthropology goes towards proof of my claims.
Proof is something that is always asked here but rarely given. Then when it is...wham you get whacked.
I have provided more evidence to support my scholarly opinions than there is proof offered for any theology, let alone the amatuer opinions and fabrications on both sides of the aisle.
You're going to get trashed here no matter what you do.
My amateur opinion may not mean anything to you. I don't care. I'm having a discussion here and there. I realize that there are people who know much more than I and I learn from them. Other than that, whether highly educated or an 8th grade dropout, everyone has an opinion and everyone has something to say. That's what this type of forum is for.
It seems that it's much more important to you and a few others to prove yourself than it is to the rest of us.
You can be pissy because the 'amateurs' have called you on the silliness of feeling you need to prove to strangers that you are more qualified to answer any and every question than are the rest of us. At this point, it's just boring and inane.
