Well, what did you expect to happen when we finally convinced her that all her arguments are incorrect and that ours are correct?

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy

Lol!! I see what you did there! ROFL!!

Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people. Martin Luther King

I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend. Thomas Jefferson

Seems to me if its clear that certain things that require ancient dates couldn't possibly be true, we are on our way to throwing out all those ancient dates on the basis of the actual evidence. -- Faith

From "The Nonsense of Revelation 13 Economics" topic
From here:
Adminnemooseus writes:

Please clarify what you mean by the terms "*******", "********", and "*********".

Or are they just indicators that you are a wacko and your message(s) should be cast into the garbage heap?

Go ahead, in this case, reply to this message to clarify your topic position.


Response from here:

Davidjay writes:

Calling me a wacko, is surely not an appropriate way of getting me to tell you who ******** and ****** represent. Besides its on my weebsite if you really want to research it and get into greater detail.

I obviously didn;t tell you because all you need to know was already present and explained.

If you have a real question concerning the topic, to consider asking it more politely.



Considering that your participation at this forum much rests in my opinion of you, you might have responded to the polite (I said "Please") request of sentence one.

Instead, you gave me an implied "Yes" to the question of sentence two.


Or something like that.

Do posters lie? Yeah.
As we are not allowed to comment on the other thread. I will repost here

David Jay is the worst, most egregious liar we have had here in a long time. He makes other creos look like virtues of truth. This is not a perfect world and debate sites do attract liars. When the mods refuse to enforce rules for a certain subset, their behaviour will continue to devolve. Making up facts, changing arguments in midstream and claiming other posters said something other than what they actually said, are all forms of lying.
Dr. A is not the problem. He is doing the only reasonable thing to do when confronted with a member as dishonest as DavidJay. If mods will not call out the lying it is up to the members.

Edited by Theodoric, : No reason given.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Seeing all the complaints that turned up on the discussion problems thread I have to wonder why more of that wasn't reported there before. I haven't followed DavidJay much, beyond some posts on the Messiah thread, but to me it's annoying when there are a lot of one-liner posts calling someone a liar. That's boring and annoying. It should all be taken to the Discussion Problems thread IMO.

Seems to me DJ says a lot of indefensible things, but the lying everyone is complaining about is mostly his refusal to acknowledge the opinions of opponents. It's lying, yes, but it's mostly a strategy, a bad one but a strategy.

My opinion is that he should be warned, and if he doesn't shape up after a couple of warnings then suspend him.

Meanwhile we could use a lot less of this calling people liars no matter what the provocation.
