I'll 'fess up, too, seeing as I was just as off-color and off-topic as everybody else.

Eumemics
I agree with Dan and Mammuthus that the thread was less an issue than the threat.
It was Mr.Bound who had the bright idea to start a thread in the exact same words that Syamsu used to start the "Darwinist Ideology" flamewar. I'm fed up with being told that accepting Darwin's theory is the same as advocating eugenics and Nazism. I considered us justified in trying to show how odious and ridiculous Syamsu's claims are by applying the same exact 'logic' to Christianity.
If the thread had merely been moved to the Free for All, I would have thought the powers that be wanted to shove the comedy somewhere more appropriate until it fizzled out. Closing the thread and shaming the participants makes me wonder whether they think Syamsu has good reason to argue the garbage he does, in the manner he does.
regards,
Esteban Hambre

I admire your patience. I think it was during the DarkStar Wars that I realized these marathon sparring sessions aren't constructive in the least. Old friends like John Paul, Syamsu, Zealot, and Skeptick deserve credit too for this epiphany.
It might be worth it to have a moderator ask the recalcitrant party to sum up his points or give examples of the kind of evidence he would consider persuasive. Otherwise it just degenerates into a shit-flinging party, like we've got going with ID man in a couple of threads.
regards,
Esteban Hambre

Re: From Mark24, at the "Should we be De-Evolving?" topic
It's from "Death or Glory" off London Calling:
And every gimmick hungry yob digging gold from rock 'n' roll
Grabs the mike to tell us he'll die before he's sold
But I believe in this and it's been tested by research
That he who fucks nuns will later join the church
regards,
Esteban Hambre
