    Translated into english, this statement means "I can't refute your logic that demolishes what I said, so I'm going to say 'you're wrong, I'm right, it doesn't matter what the logic is' ".



    Yes, you're still wrong until you actually refute the proof refuting you.

    Since you've claimed the assumptions I used were wrong, and those assumptions were your assumptions, you've already conceded.



    No, I didn't use your arguments.

    I refuted them.

    Your religious convictions that natural rights somehow and inexplicably exist are refuted by your own statements.
    You didn't refute crap. You did the same ol' misrepresentation. Take your misrepresentation of the slavery argument....again. When you said that if force is removed, that people will go back to owning slaves and trying to make it seem like that was the natural state. The removal force, considering the natural state, means removal of all force. In the natural state there is no slavery. But you keep making misrepresentations to make your point. Time and time again. It's sloppy, it's dishonest, and it's pointless. I mean, the only thing you've shown thus far is that you're perfect for politics.

    and I like the whole

    For the love of god, at least try to be a little consistent. Wait a few pages before you contradict yourself.

    I'm sorry -- you must not have actually read my post, as if you had, you would have noticed that I addressed this.

    Here it is:

    The part where the above is addressed:

    I have never claimed that I can back up my argument, and as such, my concession that I cannot does nothing.
    Ok. Your turn.

    Speaking of evidence, when are you going to explain the process of love-measuring through blood?

    No, I've clearly told you where you've made misconceptions and misrepresentations of my argument and applied your own bias and definitions to prove your point. You have in essence reverse engineered your argument, nothing more.

    No, you clearly said that the assumptions that I used, which were the assumptions you used, are false.
