Re: EvC
People tend to confuse the law of identity with circular reasoning.

Ever heard of the law of non-contradiction? Time to learn it.

I notice that you like to make up "laws"that supposedly make you seem like a master debater.

You must already be familiar with the law of the putrid stench.

Disclaimer: No I didn't take the quizzes because quizzes without questions about dragonflies are pointless. This is the law of non-odonatology.

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy

The reason that we have the scientific method is because common sense isn't reliable. -- Taq

I notice this behaviour when people fail exams, they tend to say the exam is somehow at fault, like when a worker blames his tools. The problem is, with his tools I can do a good job, showing the fault isn't with the tools.

Funny, I notice that people who are idiots blame the exam instead of themselves for not studying harder.

Honest people who fail exams blame themselves for not studying harder.

I think at the very least, I myself will conclude that a lot of the wind-bags of evolution you get on sites like this, either are close in knowledge to about myself or if they score higher, aren't particularly much higher unless they have some kind of higher education, so that's only to be expected.

Wind-bags of evolution has a nice ring to it. At least, no one will accuse you of boasting about your superior knowledge considering how low you set the bar against which you compare yourself.
