Opinion. Cool. I'm tolerant enough of you to allow you to have that belief.

Okay. Now that you're saying something is a fact. Prove it.
I get that you're calling something a fact. Guess what, it's a fact I'm watching NFLnetwork right now. Want proof?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argument_from_ignorance

I suppose I could say the same right back at ya.

No. You can prove it to me by giving me a screenshot. In fact, I will assume that is just you're opinion until I see proof to the contrary.

Do you have proof of that? Do you know what proof is?

I would like to know what law school you go to, or where you got a rudimentary understanding of the word "proof", because my education surely isn't ivy league, but I don't think in Harvard their telling their kids "Alright, so when your a defense attorney, and the DA says your client shot his wife, but they can't find the gun, tell the jury this: THE ABSENCE OF PROOF IS PROOF IT DIDNT HAPPEN. A GUN DOESNT EXIST BECAUSE THEY CANT SHOW IT TO YOU. ITS A FACT IT DOESNT EXIST".

I've seen a gun before.

If you assume that every Christian wants to impede people's rights, you are being prejudiced. That's a no-no, as it borders real close to the intolerance thing.

The impeding of rights has more to do with groupthink and politics than individual beliefs.

yeah, good point.


also, I checked you're profile and because you have The Greatest Story Ever Told and Idle Will Kill as your top albums, I must say you are the coolest dude on AP.net

I've long been aware of this, it's just taking others a little longer to come around.

Now you're being incredibly ignorant. Address the whole post or don't address it at all.

The absence of proof isn't proof and you know that. Just because the DA can't produce the evidence doesn't believe the murder weapon doesn't exist.

Right. I agree to a certain extent. Kind of like any person considers him/herself Straight Edge is not necessarily a violent extremist thug. However, it is possible to live a lifestyle without drugs and alcohol without becoming part of a dogmatic collective. Sort of like it's possible to have a "relationship with god" (albeit imaginary, in my opinion) without adhering to a particular religion, and thereby not inflicting damage to society by falling victim to a dangerous herd mentality. It's more the institution of Christianity that I find so alarming and downright scary than the belief in a "god".

Nope. I could have dissected the entire post but at this point I am exhausted because I have mono and am beginning to enter lurk-mode rather than argue-about-asinine-bullshit made.

You're on a computer, don't throw around bullshit like 'herd mentality' as if you're above it.

You couldn't have dissected his entire post because his entire post was unraveling your logic. You don't know everything, and therefore you can't know anything.

I've never seen a herd before, so a herd mentality obviously is a myth.

I don't know if it's valid to compare the use of modern technology with organizations that promote the rejection of truth and educated free thought.

Actually, I don't think he was unraveling my logic. I think he was trying to get me to engage in the same circular reasoning that he's been using throughout the entire thread. I'd rather not do that.
