    That's it, take it to the absurd....I wouldn't expect less of a liberal.

    Pure lie.

    It only affirms my thesis that social-darwinism is the central tenet of the Far Right.
    Less than 50 postings, and so far you have proven yourself quite run of the mill as liberal posters go in here...nothing special.

    Lie

    They actively look down on poor people
    Lie

    the poster above suspecting I'm a Wamart worker and hence putting forward "stupid" arguments
    Lie...

    Nothing you spewed in that post is anywhere near honest.

    1st: you're now shifting your goal posts (originally it was simply the conservatives)

    2nd: one can want to limit or end such state programs for any number of reasons, even under the eronious assumption that the long term effect would actually benefit the poor


    They actively look down on poor people (vide: the poster above suspecting I'm a Wamart worker and hence putting forward "stupid" arguments).
    questioning your ability to speak on a subject isn't the same as putting you down

    I'll play along. They came from the Greek Pantheon, under order from Zeus. I'm a heterodox mystic. Prove me wrong.


    Good for you...I am not saying that they are wrong, only that they don't have the exact answers...They certainly are well educated, and many have devoted their lives to answering questions like this, for that I am in amazement. But when you hide behind "probably", "maybe", "most likely'', and such then turn and denigrate those who don't think like you do, you tend to look not only intolerant, but foolish.
    I understand your concern. But until you offer a better theory, I'm more inclined to trust professionals.


    Or "maybe", or "could be", or "I don't know".....
    At one stage this is how religious people resisted theories of gravity, the big bang and the structure of our galaxy. It just doesn't belong in rational discourse. If YOU can identify a problem with these theories, be my guest.


    So that's the choice you falsely ascribe to me? Either I accept all of your theory, or none of it? False choice.
    Which part(s) of evolution do you disagree with and on what grounds?

    Eh...I find that hard to believe. 1/3 of the people polled, maybe. And maybe that poll was done in Alabama.
    Just what I was thinking... making you kinda rethink Polls too.

    Just trying to get to the point where you admit that at some point even your theory relies on faith that it just was. Looks like we got there.

    I understand your concern. But until you offer a better theory, I'm more inclined to trust professionals.
    That is a mistake you make...I don't have to have all the answers, only to poke holes in your claims.

    At one stage this is how religious people resisted theories of gravity, the big bang and the structure of our galaxy. It just doesn't belong in rational discourse. If YOU can identify a problem with these theories, be my guest.
    No, name calling aside, these are your claims, it is up to you to prove them....All I have to do is question them.

    Which part(s) of evolution do you disagree with and on what grounds?
    Not saying I do...Why would you think that?

    If "faith" is your debate tactic then that is pretty weak. I have faith that I won't float away... but the theory of gravity remains secure with evidence. I have faith that my children love me... and evidence again shows that they do. I have faith in evolution... and again, evidence shows that it is correct.

    Faith in God(s)? No evidence. Mermaids? Unicorns? THAT is the type of faith one can reasonably question.
