Have you ever talked to creationists that are so convinced they are right?
I've spoken to many people who were convinced they were right. Most people who hold a position do so because they're convinced it's the right one. Hard to argue something when you think it's wrong.
But, yes, I have talked to people who'd set themselves up behind a nearly unassailable wall of confidence. For instance, recently I spoke to an ex-cop who, in the same breath, despised those who got away with law-breaking and then explained how he never got tickets because he only violates speeding laws by less than 10 MPH. That he'd proved himself a hypocrite in the space of two sentences seemed completely lost on him.
You probably missed all the times I said I was only a cop for a short while and in no way setting myself up as an expert in copery and know everything about coperfication. This is something that you completely made up and I demand an apology for lying right through your teeth about me.
Why would I apologize for what you did? The only accusation of being an "expert in copery" made by anyone in that thread is the one you made to me in Message 84. Or did you not say:
quote:You really do need to try to get to know some of this stuff before you decide to further sound like an expert in copery.
Since you seem to think that's something that merits an apology, I'll await yours to me.
No, you did not specifically use the words "expert in copery".
Oh, I see. So you actually accused me of something you knew I hadn't done, because you were losing control of this situation.
But you don't think cops accusing people of things they haven't done is something they do when they lose control of situations. You're sure - confident, perhaps? - that I'm completely wrong about that.
But here is your paragraph again.
Yes, I wrote those words. You've now admitted that you've falsely accused me of "accusing you of being an expert in copery". Well, ok. So where in that paragraph do I make any reference at all to your supposed expertise? Please be specific and boldface the relevant language. The language you have boldfaced is a reference to your confidence, not to your supposed expertise. You know, that's why it says "wall of confidence" not "wall of expertise."
Again, you seriously can't tell the difference between driving 7 over the speed limit and arm robbery?
That's certainly not on topic in this thread. You should continue that argument in the other thread. You know, the one where you keep promising not to respond to me.
