But before we continue further, I'm going to leave this sentence here : it's quite important.

Note the first occurrences of the word "breed", from Cimode. Now note the rebuttal I offered him next :

Tally-ho.

> Proofs are what you write...

No, it's time for you to educate yourself a little more; "come up to proof" is a legal term; a witness fails to "come up to proof" if they attempt to prove a matter but fail to do so. So come on, it's time for you to come up to proof; start offering proof of the various assumptions you've been making from belief rather than reason. Anyway, let's on to the next sentence :

> I have not used the term *breed of humanity*..

Now, you may be having problems with your short-term memory, but I think you'll find you did; you then presumably didn't read the rebuttal I gave to your frankly absurd reinterpretation of either of my sentences. (I kept the quotes at the top of this post so you can check if you like.) You do know the rules about conversion of existential and universal quantifiers, don't you ? Even then, your expansion of "Cimode is an unpleasant/vile example of humanity" to "breeds" simply doesn't follow, does it ? Come come now. Reason, not belief, remember ?

> What is a *breed of humanity*? Show me a breed of humanity?

Since you started using the term, I think you should define it.

You're asking questions of yourself.

Did you ? Where ?

In which case, why ask questions in your posts, and continue posting elsewhere on this thread ? You're not very strong on consistency, are you ? Received on Wed Jun 21 2006 - 08:23:44 CDT
