    I really have little interest in having another discussion with you for the above described reasons. A debate with you over topic X is simply a debate with you over you.

    You have missed the point of the post. I did not mean simply to respond about one little thing. I was pointing out what seemed to be a problem in discussing anything with you. If I plainly...

    I cannot adequately explain how much it means to see you write this. Look, I know you think I "have it in" for you, but what I don't think you understand is that my biggest disagreements on this...

    There's no contradiction in what she's saying. You're just making poor assumptions in order to pretend otherwise. Your accusation was that Miyako was clearly stating that all one needed was...

    The essence of a word is a metaphor--something that is likely to be difficult for a literalist goon with a Cliff Notes understanding of literature. I find it hilarious that some moron who pretends...

    This is precisely what I'm talking about. You're trying to obscure the disagreement by conceding a point that I'm not making. I wasn't simply making the point that the Kalam was valid. I was...
