    because they differ with your beliefs is more manifestation of your dogmatic thinking, not evidence of the ignorance of others.

    It is also a fallacious form of argumentation.

    Since you reject the notion that logic is valid, there is no point in even having a discussion. You make a claim based on logical principles, yet when the logical flaws in your argument are revealed, you claim to reject logic.

    That is mere sophistry, and I have encountered the mentality many times in debates with Creationists. You apparently think you have discovered something new and wonderful, because a college professor assigned to it impressive sounding multi-syllabic words.

    It is a tired old philosophy that was dealt with in ancient Greece, and discarded because it is sterile, impotent and useless. It leads nowhere.

    And none of it sheds any light on the questionable values this diary promotes, nor the critiques presented to them.

    •  I know the discussion is tiresome, (0+ / 0-)

      its why I haven't put much effort into this discussion, made my responses short, I didn't comment in the original diary.

      It is very very old. TINS opened it, and I was never really interested in discussing it.
