Edit_XYZ's still struggling with the basic concept of what constitutes a disease, I see.

T'Girl, look, for example, at Dennis, Chemahkuu, or beamMe - they hide behind insult flavored non-sequiturs, but at least they know what they want to write.
But your post - it's all over the place.

On the off chance you actually wanted to argue my post, here it is:

I recommend you try some straw-men; you may also try attempting to maintain the illusion of consistency with your other posts from at least this thread - or at least with the one I quoted in my linked to post.


Now - to everyone: This is the strength of your belief?
You came here, recited obviously inconsistent values and transformed this thread into an all but orgasmic contest of ~'who can come up with the best proclamation of faith'.
I challenged you; and what are the responses?:
-a few brave posters tried to argue on logical grounds (doomed to fail, reality and logic being what they are);
-most hid behind non-sequiturs and dictums, or just hid;
-NOT ONE had the guts to actually come and say ~'Yes, this is my belief, Edit_XYZ. What are you going to do about it? Argue its consistency? Lol.' Noone.

Perhaps I was wrong; perhaps this is not your belief, but mere political correctness - parroting the party-line prevailing in your group, with little thought given to it, simply in order to try to look good.

So basically your position hasn't changed.

What the hell is you problem? Do you really want that people who argue in favour of X also always have to argue in favour of Y?

Re: Do you often wish that you were living in Star Trek now?

Okay, this thread has gone way off topic.

Edit_XYZ and T'Girl, let me give you a friendly reminder that misquoting someone in order to insult them is not allowed.

I'm just going to end this now.
