MWAH! Gosh you're cute when you try righteous indignation on for size. Looks like it's a bit large for you, though. I think naming a trope wins you the cupie doll, that's what I think. And here you go, trying for another prize. Do you have ANY idea of how batshit crazy you sound, comparing me to a Nazi war criminal? Because I think Tuvok and Neelix are just as important as Tuvix? Let's be clear here: I wrote--and affirm--that BOTH acts are murder. Taking apart Tuvix is murder, and leaving Tuvok and Neelix in a state of non-being is, effectively, murder. Pity you are unable to see that. And I didn't make the comparison to the Doctor and the hammer. That was you, and I thought it was silly as hell. Trying for three prizes? The absurdity is all yours chum. Comparisons to Mengele? Weird--and completely illegitimate--comparisons to withholding medical care from mortally injured people? In this case, and not in many others, refusing to kill a person (Tuvix) IS killing other people (Tuvok and Neelix), which is what I wrote. The truth is they do NOT continue in Tuvix. Subsumption into some conglomerate being is not true life. If you insist that I'm "the spiritual successor to Mengle" (oh boy), then you are just as much so, because YOU are killing Tuvok and Neelix in this scenario by refusing to undo the making of Tuvix. I wasn't making an argument in favor of one or the other--but you'd know that, if you'd actually read what I'd written. What's strange to me is how hard you're working to avoid the truth of this. Why is it SO important to you to establish that Tuvok and Neelix are less important than the life of Tuvix. Why is that, I wonder? Oh well, like the number of licks and the tootsie roll pop, the world may never know. Not if you keep babbling on like this. Now you just keep having that argument in your head with a Vandervecken who doesn't exist--you scarcely need to read anything I've actually written, you're doing just fine quoting the other guy in your head. it'll be safer for you that way, anyway, you won't hurt yourself.
