Schraf,
Sy is an absolute peach, he is creationistic ignorance in a microcosm, & then adds some more for effect.
Only a creationist could ask for support for an argument, which Quetzal & Mammuthus supplied in abundance, & then accuse them of lawyering & trickery by producing "paperwork". Known to the the rest of us as "relevant reading material", by the way. And the fact he partially reads material & then claims to get intended meanings in context when clearly the author is saying exactly the opposite. That's just a sophisticated (I use the word advisedly) misquote that we're all familiar with from creationists.
But since I'm on a thread about moderation, I do believe a little too much slack has been given to Syamsu "I've-said-it-so-it-must-be-true". And I say that admitting I've probably got away with more than I should of on occasions (frustration gets the better of me, sadly).

Syamsu,
If it were the other way round, if I'd said that Dawkins says people are born altruist, then you would simply accuse of misrepresenting Dawkins also.
Yeah, but I've read him & you haven't. Who do you think has the most authoritative argument? Who is most likely to be misrepresenting?
I post to you for the comedy value, Syamsu, nothing more.
Mark
