LMAO!! You might also have a broken tail light, but I am sure they will let you know.
    The rules here aren't very difficult to understand, IMO. I know for a fact that comment won't get an infraction.

    You did not ask. I admit that I failed to predict that you would continue your absurd requests. Since all you seem to have is requests for information, I will suggest you Google it and let us know when you've digested this info

    It is also untrue. As far as I know, every school board that has managed to get creatinism added to the science curriculum has had that reversed after the community protested. Often after the community elected a new school board

    If you present the assertion, it's on you to support it. JFGI isn't actually a response.
    I may be wrong.

    Constantly asking for definitions is not discussion or debate. And asking for a definition is not the same as asking for support for an assertion.

    If you don't provide a definition for the word as you used it then you need to be happy w/ w/e someone else's definition is. A lot can hinge on definitions I have found.
    I may be wrong.

    If you cannot bother to back up your arguments, how do you expect people to take your arguments seriously.

    Again, asking for a definition is not asking for evidence to back up an argument.
