Brilliant retort. Especially the Miss Piggy quote :)

(I have a particular bee in my bonnet about argumentum ad verecundiam at the moment -- long story -- so don't take my antipathy toward Russell to heart. He won't! I'll be his best friend tomorrow :) )


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice. Suck that fhit

    No worries, I just figured you most likely read something (or some things) of his you adamantly disagreed with, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that if true. Also, I'm sorry, but I just can't help myself... on that last thought of yours... :-)
