Your snide tone is to be expected, totally dishonest in it's connotations I might add.

As the Forum Guidelines request, please keep the discussion impersonal.

Moreover, the claims are overstated, but passing off overstatements as facts is par for the course for evolutionists.

Please stay focused on the topic and ignore the supposed deficiencies of your opponents.

Forum Guidelines Warning IV
randman writes:

Petty demands of "yes, no" questions will be ignored because you are ignoring the points I raised.

...

Further posts ignoring the need for data to answer these questions will be ignored by me until they are dealt with.

The Forum Guidelines request that you debate constructively, and declarations like this work against this goal. Please work proactively toward developing ways of constructively exchanging viewpoints and information with your fellow debaters.

randman, for someone who dodges questions as much as you do, you sure get your panties in a bunch when you think that people have avoided yours.

Please stay focused on the debate topic and avoid commenting on the behavior of your opponents.

I've already answered this several times. Repeating this serves no additional purpose other than to appear to yourself that you are debating the issue instead of dodging it.

Enjoy your fantasy.

The Forum Guidelines requests constructive dialogue.

Forum Guidelines Warning V
randman writes:

Pretty much, I would expect a full retraction and apology, but frankly, I don't think you have the integrity within you to do so, and yes, I am more than a little ticked off.

The Forum Guidelines request that you remain dispassionate and impersonal in discussion. Postponing replies until no longer "ticked off" might help you achieve this.

It's not my fault you are too poorly schooled in logic to understand this.

The Forum Guidelines request that discussion confine itself to the topic of debate and not extend to the personal qualities of fellow debaters.

Re: Dark Moths, {not "White" - just} Non-polluted trees. Anomalies.

Obviously way off topic here, but certain comments require a response. You are doing science a big disservice and playing straight into the hands of YECism and IDism.

Probably worth a topic if you want to propose one.

Re: It's quite obvious... REALLY quite obvious!
RAZD writes:

For saying someone had no integrity instead of saying that their posts demonstrated a lack of integrity.

This comment demonstrates a lack of perspicacity. Of course, this is only a comment about your post and should not be construed as implying anything about you personally. No association whatsoever should be inferred. By they way, your post also demonstrates a lack of personal hygiene and general attractiveness. Again, not a personal comment, I'm only talking about your post. :D

Seriously, my advice is always the same: keep discussion focused on the thread's topic and not on the people you're debating with. Adding a level of indirection so you can say, for example, "I only said his post was stupid, not that he was stupid," isn't a significant distinction.

Topic Drift Alert
As the opening post makes clear, this thread is about whether the peppered moth is a legitimate example of natural selection in the wild. Unless it is being argued that melanism in the peppered moth requires addition and deletion of an entire gene, the possibility of mutations introducing new genes is off-topic for this thread.
