    It doesn't take long for one of you childish dummy spits to emerge. Slightly longer than I expected this time. Maybe that's a sign of progress, but I doubt it.

    If you read what I said, I made no mention of you. It was a general remark related to semantics and evidence.

    Nor was aupmanyav's comment erroneous. That is your erroneous belief.

    My remark was related to aupmanyav's comment, hence relevant to the discussion.

    Nothing is conscious before readiness potential.

    If the logical proportions I post are always faulty then I must be a master of logic and everybody else is stupid.

    It certainly doesn't encourage participation when everyone who responds is told they are an idiot.

    I wouldn't vote for you, that's for sure.

    Never questioning your own assumption of being correct? Or your own standing as the judge of who is an idiot? Or the repercussions of your attitude?
