Wouldn't their actions be inspired by their beliefs? Aren't beliefs (as I think Sam Harris puts it) engines of action?

But Leonard wasn't calling Christians "goggle-eyed fools" because of their actions though.

Except that he's not admitting anything. I assume, on extremely good evidence, that he doesn't want to get drawn into another almost endless  and tedious non-debate with a tiresome wanker of a troll who can never actually answer a straight question or put forward any opinion of his own. Given how you slimed and squirmed your way through the "Do Christians believe in evolution?" thread in your usual unctuous and evasive manner and finally ran away from it like a blubbering coward when backed into the corner of being faced with answering questions that you had no intention of answering and more likely no ability to answer, he is entirely correct so to do.

That's strange. I got the impression that it was you who had "bravely run away" when you refused to answer the point about your refusal to provide a defintion for a term that you introduced to the discussion having already exhausted every obfuscatory tactic at your disposal:

It seems perfectly acceptable to you when you continually duck, weave and evade simple questions, so I guess I have every right to consider it perfectly acceptable for me to do the same.


This is you refusing to define a term that you have introduced to the discussion then.



I can see, by your decision to throw nasty insults here rather than returning to the scene of your emasculation, that despite this being days old your forced retreat still rankles with you.

- Which of course you did first when you referred, without definition, to a Christianity (ostensibly minus supernatural elements) perfectly compatible with the scientific method and an apparently entirely distinct Christianity with supernatural elements, which isn't - according to you -

No forced retreat - I just know when my time is being wasted by a slimy and evasive twat incapable of actual debate or discussion. And those I never forget.

It definitely doesn't rankle given that you were the one who slunk away with your tail between your legs

Leo and Shaker, what's up old timers? They stop serving prune juice at the old folks home?

Shaker has answered this quite efficiently and with much better words than I could have chosen.

Essentially, I have long been aware of your tiresome and pointless form of posting, but I foolishly respond at times, even when I know that the sensible thing to do is ignore you completely.

I am walking proof of the adage that 'there is no fool like an old fool' ... but there ya go, we all have to get old (unless we die young, of course!)
