Re: perhaps missing the point?
Hi Drew,
Your original comment was;

The more I debate Darwinists and atheists or whatever form of materialism any of you subscribe to, the more I am convinced that you all seem to be poor philosophers.
You claim that;

Albert Einstein also beleived scientists are poor philosophers.
Note the difference. According to your claim, Einstein was talking about scientists (in general); you are talking about "Darwinists and atheists". In fact, you are talking about a specific group of people; those who you have been interacting with via this forum (and perhaps others).
I doubt that Einstein had an opinion of EvC Forum habitus.
Do I find Einstein condescending? I don't know. You didn't bother to provide a quotation. I do find it risible though that you should bring up Einstein, as though the mere mention of his name held some magical significance. Einstein may have been a very clever man, but he is not some kind of infallible idol. I'm sure he said a great many foolish things in his life.
Basically, you are calling everyone on this forum who disagrees with an you idiot and claiming that Einstein thinks so too. Insulting the intelligence of others isn't exactly the highest form of debate. I called it sanctimonious bullshit before and I stand by that judgement.
