bohm, I've come to the conclusion that you are only interested in bickering and arguing. That's all well and good, but I'm not playing that game.
A riddle my brother gave me today
That you now call clarifying questions bickering tells me a lot about your attitude. I guess it depend if a person is interested in a fact based discussion one can learn from, or one is interested in maintaining an oppinion. I have certainly seen the later more than a couple of times on this site, and i will agree that i come down harder on you because i am a bit tired of discussions ending like that (see yesterdays climate change discussion).
But honestly - Telling a historian Columbus discovered India or a biologist germs and virusses are really the same will promt follow up questions - you repeatly state i am wrong, yet you seem completely unable or unwilling to tell me what the problem is, as i have noted many times previously.
