Anfauglir likes lemon squash.
Anfauglir does not like lemon squash.
Which is true, Junebug? How would you go about determining which one is true?
Once more for emphasis - How would you go about determining which one is true?
I would go to the grocery store buy a bunch of lemon squash and start cooking. Take notes observe you eating the various kinds of lemon squash recipes. That should help us figure out whether you like it or not. [/quote]
Excellent! So you DO understand how one can test to see if a claim is true or not. Does that mean that all the claims you made can similarly be tested?
This is called the Discussion zone, not evidence zone.
Very well. I will stop requesting evidence for your beliefs in this thread. And I assume that in the "debate about EVIDENCE" thread, you will actively engage to critically examine the EVIDENCE. Fair's fair Junebug - if you don't want to talk evidence here 'cos its not appropriate, I expect you to do so in the evidence thread.
I could have all the evidence in the world it would not make a difference here you would just say it's not evidence, and forgive me, I do not trust your judgement in the matter. That's like telling a defendant they get to chose what is evidence and what is not, I'm sure they will rule in favor of their own cause. So get a neutral party that can be trusted to critically judge validity of evidence before you come at me with it again. You can not have that much control unless you are willing to allow me the same or you have a very unfair advantage over me.
Please stop with this baseless victimhood. As I've said several times in the debate thread - YOU can decide what the criteria is for evidence
. I'm getting rather fed up of you telling me I'm doing something I've clearly not done.
I'll say it one more time.Junebug. YOU can choose what type of statements are acceptable as evidence of a claim in our debate.
But you have to allow me to apply that same criteria to any other claim that might be made - unless you are requesting that YOUR claims should somehow be treated differently from anyone else's? See your last statement in red? That is exactly what YOU are refusing to do - to apply the same standards of evidence to ALL claims being made. So please stop pretending to be a martyr - its YOU that is trying to twist and get special exmptions for your own claims.
We are having a discussion about belief. I accept you the way you are, but you can not accept me as I am.
I don't give a toss what you are like, frankly. We'll never meet, so I have no issue. I accept you have your beliefs - jolly good! You have a belief in god, a belief in greed, super stuff!
So....I expect you will now STOP trying to present evidence for your belief that "greed is bad, m'kay?". Why do you keep banging on about it and trying to present all this evidence, Junebug? Can't you accept me as I am?
Why do you keep trying to challenge MY beliefs?
