"Rather than even do the courtesy of addressing my comment you've made assumptions and launched immediately into ad hominem insults." +Jason Horton
On the contrary, I directly addressed your point. I instructed you to read all the previous posts in order to find out "what's the contention here?" When I pointed out that you jump in and comment before reading the context, I wasn't insulting you I was describing your regular practice. I further went on to summarize all of the contentions that I laid out for Angela that yet remain unanswered.
You said, "It seems pretty clear. Science puts women into space, religion puts women into shapeless sacks and strips away their rights. Both are fine examples representing what each can do for women. What is the contention here?"
That's not a point, it's a revisionist straw man. If you read what I have written and what Adam has written, you would know what our contention is with this hack meme and wouldn't have to ask. It's not my fault that you can't understand that direct answer to your "point."
Btw, if you read the previous comments, you would also know that the first thing Angela did when Adam agreed with me was to start harassing him about being a Christian. From what I've read of Adam's posts, he likely agrees with Angela on more things than with me. So why is it that you're not calling her out for ignoring what people say and jumping to conclusions? It's called confirmation bias.+Angela Martin
, really? About.com? You might want to extend your research a little further, ya think?
This one is the best:"Fake Experts"
Right, like Francis Bacon, Louis Pasteur, Johannes Kepler, and Sir Isaac Newton. You're saying those dopes don't know anything about the founding of modern science. Nice. That's right up there with saying that The Declaration of Independence does not point to God as the source of human rights. Go ahead and keep your fingers in your ears singing "La la la."
Forgive me for placing such "impossible standards"
on you, like facing the simple facts. I realize it forces you off script, but is it really asking too much for you to be honest?
