Wrong. I respond in the same form as the post I am responding to. It is right there in front of everyone to see.
OK, I would like some other members to comment on this. Here are the posts in question:
Mitch: Sure, that part of evolutionary theory is really important to you, just as transubstantiation is really important to some Christians.

They are not mine, nor have I contributed to them, but I can read and understand them, and I can discuss them with intelligence and confidence and I will debate the aspects of them on the facts. In this case, neither Mitch nor Rian have made any legitimate arguments that challenge the facts of the theory, or my commentary about it. What Mitch is doing is suggesting I have some sort of inappropriate attachment to it. When something factual is stated, I'll be happy to acknowledge it.
Mitch: I just want to make it perfectly clear how all of gary's response to my post is such complete bullshit that I feel I am wasting my time reading his posts at all. He uses the word "evolution" for his own private heavily emotionally invested philosophy rather than any kind of scientific theory and I just give up on any hope of having a rational discussion of the topic with him.
So, please, someone tell me that my statement was a direct insult to Mitch. Did I say anything about his comments wasting my time or all of them being bullshit? No. I said that particular statement was bullshit because it was not an accurate statement about my motivations. I went on to say that he had not made any relevant arguments to change my mind and I would be happy to address one if he made it. Did that really warrant his ugly response?
If anyone ever makes a statement about why he says something, he pounces on them immediately. What a hypocrite.
Wrong again, I have no problem with my parents or any of the atheists I grew up with. I had no reason to think badly of any atheists until I saw the way that atheists behaved on internet forums.
Yes it is apparent that many atheists don't see anything wrong with what they are doing when they are doing it to others, but only when others do the same thing to them.
Show me where I have supposedly done this and I will explain it for you.
Liar! He's called me a bigot numerous times in the past and has never once taken it back. Fucking hypocrite. I swear everyone here should put him on ignore.
