In your own words:
'Maybe some day you will contribute more than pathetic isults on this thread.'
Every time someone disagrees with you, you go off on a tangent and try to let them know how stupid you think they are.
Degrees mean you've passed courses. Intelligence is sometimes something altogether different.
It isn't the message, it's the messenger.
As far as history goes, you are all proving to be clueless. Even X has lost the edge he used to have.

I bet you call your doctor on his egotism when he tells you that you aren't a doctor when you tell him you disagree with his diagnosis.

I didn't ask stupid questions with hidden insults. I asked questions about what you claimed to believe and then you went off the deep end because you saw you didn't have any answers to those questions. I kept pushing you because you were inconsistent in what you were saying. And yes, I have a penchant for questioning over and over when there are inconsistencies in what someone posts.
You think you should be able to repeatedly insult a woman Mac cares for and have it be okey dokey with him. Most men I know would never think it was okay. Real men stand up for others they care about in their lives, but you think Mac should take your side simply because that's what you want. What kind of craziness is that?
You're acting like a freaking jilted lover. So I'll tell ya what. If you want Mac, and he agrees, he's all yours. Why would I stand in the way of true love?

I have a good relationship with my doctor. When I thought he was over-medicating me for my arthritis, I told him that. He adjusted the arthritis meds.

I've never had a conversation with my doctor that ended up in him telling me I'm not a doctor. He believes that people know more about their bodies than a doctor does most of the time. He knows that patients know how they feel, what works for them, etc. if they are in any way attuned to their body and take the time to learn about things like osteoarthritis or heart problems. He doesn't argue, as you do, and jump up and show me the diplomas on his wall. He's lived long enough (72 years) to know that this would antagonize his patients and is therefore of no use whatsoever. He's a gentle soul who has never felt the need to brag on his diplomas.

I go to him because he listens and then treats. I go to him because he is a kind and gentle soul who truly wants what is best for his patients and not what is best for his ego. If I have a question he tries to have an answer, but if he doesn't he will tell me he'll look into it and get back to me. He always gets back to me.

So your analogy here is pure imagination.

Why do you hate opposition? Why do you hate differing opinions to the degree that you will insult *anyone* who dares to have a different viewpoint?

You don't have to do that to prove you are knowledgeable. You don't have to do it to be superior in your educational accomplishments. You don't have to make enemies where there are none simply because someone disagrees with you.

Not everyone who is less educated than you is stupid, dishonest, clueless, flawed, etc. True intelligence is the art of being able to use your education in daily life in a manner which will cause people to stop and listen. You use your education the same way fundies use their Bible. I realize it's a defense mechanism, just like the fundie jumping up and down yelling 'I'm right! I'm right! I'm right!'. I just don't understand why someone with your credentials should feel so insecure that you have to continually try to prove yourself more intelligent than everyone else on earth.

Allow people the privilege of disagreeing with you. If you truly want to learn, you might try listening to people like Hip G and X when they disagree with you. Neither of them are as stupid as you like to pretend.

Not at all. I know you'd like to feel persecuted when people disagree with you, but it just isn't reality.

I sometimes wonder what happened to you in life that you feel the need not only to be right in everything you say, but not allow anyone else to be right at any time if it opposes your opinion.

Unlike you, I know that there are people who know more than I do on many subjects. You have even tried to tell women you know more about their bodies than they do, simply because you have to prove that you're more educated than they are.(Notice I didn't say intelligent, but educated.)

I try to learn from those who are more educated than I am in any area of life. But, I don't learn a damn thing from people who insult me for the simple reason that I disagree with them or don't live up to the standards they have invented for everyone but themselves.

Now you are free to try and insult me again.

Do you think you have enlightened anyone with your posts today? Or do you think they might possibly be seen as rantings of someone who can't be opposed?

What I have observed is a little boy having a tantrum.

I already have and I do.

The sad fact is that I have proven myself to a University board just, like your doctor, yet because I disagree with some of your amateur arguements, you get all pissy.

I am not the defensive one. I already KNOW that I understand what the discipline of the historian is about. Let me see yours, or anyone else's, credentials. I believe you and others here are the pompous frauds, not me.

well that's a shame that people who love power use anything within their power to control people. always has been and always will be no matter what the tools are. it even says in the last days that the anti-christ/beast will "ride the whore" (undiscerning shallow church) in order to gain power before he turns on her and "burns her with fire" kinda like what hitler did with the hand-wringing & emasculated lutheran church in his day.

i'm giving you good stuff in case you're really a rebel and not just a devil's butt-girl:)

Putting words in my mouth again.

I said X ahas become Jaded and hasn't contribuded anythign but trolling comments in over six months.

As for Hip, I don't think he is stupid either. I don't think your are stupid either.

I do think you are all so Hellbent on attacking Christianas that you are just being asses. Not sure why you are all so threatened by a bunch of poorly written books from over a millenia ago.

They are no more "proof" of anything than any ancient document is "proof" of anything. Without archaelogy or other tangible evidence to back it up, even Gallic Wars is no more than a story in a book that proves nothing more than a human put ink to paper.

BTW, it is things like the excavations of the Roman siege fortifications at Alesia that give credibility to Gallic Wars, NOT that it "isn't religious".

A "real historian" would have pointed that out.
All you are doing is "playing doctor" and expecting others to turn their heads and cough for you.

Sorry WN, None of you have me by the balls.

I have finally come to a conclusion (my opinion only) what...why...when...where...et c etc you changed "G". You were not like this when you first showed up at WSJLM.

You arrived there at around the same time that "X" made his last appearance there. At that time you thought "X"'s sh't didn't stink. No matter what he said you jumped on the band wagon with him and helped him fight the battles.

Then one day "X" moved on...I suppose he had either grown weary and tired of the lack of discussion...don't know why. For a few days you were like this lost puppy without your mentor...and yes...you treated him as if he was a mentor.

Then one day...you decided to step up and fill his shoes...you would become that alpha male dog whose sh't didn't stink.

On a personal level..."X" and I don't always agree. He does however (I think) understand that I approach life from that emotional side...that I am not student of history...and responds to me accordingly. He has never tried to make me feel like an idiot because of that.(He might think I am an idiot but at least he has never put me down for the lack of that knowledge).

You do (at one time you didn't...until you became some alpha dog whose thinks their sh't don't stink).

I would like to ask you one thing...

When you attacked over the breast-feeding issue you indicated that you had superior knowledge in that area because of your studies...that made you more qualified to speak over WN and me regardless of our hands on experience. Yet the other day on WSJLM you were discussing a subject with someone. Your statement went something like this...

Simply because someone reads about fishing does not make him more of an expert on fishing than the man that actually fishes.

I could not help but snicker...

The short of it all...

While I hate smelly sh't...I had more respect for you...liked you better...when yours did.
