Response to beergood (Reply #71)

72. I referred to the reference to your posts as made by your detractor.

Your citation of the science articles was perfectly legitimate which is what makes your detractor's complaints so dismaying.

It's hard to imagine a more telling example of someone -- your detractor -- taking only preliminary facts, drawing sweeping conclusions based on that limited knowledge then assuming absolute epistemological closure when newer/more complete facts become available.

If I wanted to create a caricature of an opponent to make them seem foolish and easily defeated I could not create one akin to what we see displayed and still make that caricature believable. Yet, here he has done it to himself -- and he has ironically done so in service to an effort to make us look ideologically close-minded.
