Sheesh, talk about double standards. Isn’t it against the rules to make such sweeping claims without providing some supporting evidence?
How do you know there aren’t as many?
See my subsequent posts.
Whilst we’re on the subject, I wonder if people here think it’s acceptable to slap such an ugly label on someone, if they don’t realise they are being intellectually dishonest? I think in this forum, where grace and kindness should be foremost in peoples minds, its only fair to call someone that, only after their error has been brought to their attention and they refuse acknowledge it or persist in using it in their line of reasoning.
Then you're wrong. when someone is being intellectually honest, they're being intellectually dishonest; it doesn't matter if they realise it or not.
For example, in a previous thread, certain people were very eager in calling me (amongst other things) intellectually dishonest, when in reality my only error was that I failed to word my views in the correct way.
Oh really? Do please present evidence for your claims.
I proceeded to clarify and add several qualifications, but the ugly accusation had already been made and there was no turning back. Its not in the spirit of Christ and even though I don’t believe in Christ, the ones that wave around the phrase do, and they should remember that people are watching and will be very quick to notice those who don’t practice what they preach.
I believe we're pretty good at practicing what we preach here; when people are intellectually dishonest we call them on it, regardless of whether they're Christians or not. You have a well established track record of intellectual dishonesty, both here and on BDF, as well as a track record of making derisive, mocking, gratuitously offensive, and factually inaccurate posts. This is demonstrable.
