And clearly you failed to understand it or the trap.
The expected answer was “yes” - and I had no intention of disputing that.

Well, I guess the subtlety went over my head. Maybe partly because of the last thread we were involved in.

He has told you, O man, what is good ; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God.

Very interesting discussions going on but this is the wrong thread.

Can you continue on the customary threads, please?

I would like to see this continued.

I think sometimes we wish you DIDN'T have any integrity. The question I often ask is, "Smart crook or honest fool?" Sometimes a smart crook is easier to take than an honest fool.

In fact there wasn’t a lot of subtlety. If you can write obvious falsehoods without violating your integrity, so can the Gospel authors and the Church fathers. See Message 28 for a takedown of three of your claims - two obviously false and one obviously irrational.

Unfortunately that is what you are really complaining about.

The onus is on you to make better arguments, not to demand that we pretend that your arguments are good, or to paint yourself as the victim if we don’t. Your arguments are your responsibility. We don’t have to dishonestly cover up your failures.

this site is deader than a doornail. it's not one issue, it's many.

it's basically become a joe biden fillibuster

sad to see a place that was at one point dynamic for social media standards descend into complete anachronism.

i wouldn't honestly care at all, but i have nowhere else to get my social media fix right now.

i would make suggestions to encourage board participation, but they would fall on deaf ears. this place is apparently hellbent on falling into anachronistic, digital dust.

anyway, continue falling on your sword, EvC. you're still more relevant than reddit i suppose, despite the huge traffic disparity.

that's not exactly a compliment.

you have a nicer cesspool.

i guess at some point percy will become bored with paying bandwidth?

as trump would say,

You might consider answering some of your own unanswered posts. Posting your opinions and then ignoring the responses is not exactly an examplary form of participation.
