    You can't refute a belief.

    One either has faith, or they do not.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    The real problem with that is someone trying to "prove" Christianity. The Bible puts the emphasis on faith, and proving the existence of God means that you've logically eliminated Him.

    Every person of faith has what they see as very good reasons for believing in God. I am one of them, but I don't fool myself into thinking that these reasons constitute actual proof, or would mean anything to anybody but me.

    But you are unable to refute what was said. Had these "reliable sources of information" provided you with any wit or knowledge you could have demonstrated what errors there might be, but they did not and you are helpless. Hence the cut and run.

    Do you bother "refuting" the arguments of people who scream about Russian invasions or Armageddon on street corners? I doubt you do. Neither do I and you're the internet version of them.

    Are people in your area screaming about "Russian invasions" or "Armageddon on street corners"?

    It seems that being Left involves a lot of fantasy and not a great deal of the real world. Get back to the discussion of eugenics and it's consequences and you'll see signs of the true Left everywhere.

    It seems my point went right over your head. Here's an example of how I see you - except substitute "eugenics" and "liberals" for "God":
    Street Preacher - Chicago, Il. on Michigan Ave. - June 28, 2009 - YouTube

    P.S. I already know the history of eugenics, it's an American one, not just a liberal one.

    I really try to discourage the Left from flying off into directions not directly involved with the issues at hand.

    Do you understand the link between Eugenics and Abortions?

    That's interesting because eugenics and abortion have nothing to do with black employment being the highest in 27 years. I'll talk to you seriously when you stop talking in generalizations - until then, you get about as much serious discussion out of me as those street preachers get.

    As a matter of fact Eugenics and Abortion have a great deal to with prejudices against Black people. You apparently don't understand the connection between Eugenics, Abortion, Black people and don't want to learn about it.

    Self censorship appears to be the only way the Left can maintain their views and yet still have them make any sense to them.
