Fanusi-

Sorry, Steve, your demand that all absolutes be abolished is an absolute demand in its own right. So abolish thyself first.


Oh for goodness sake Fanusi.

This kind of silly word-play is even more tiresome than my habitual pedantry.

Either demonstrate absolute moral values in your next post, or concede that me and Bonzai might actually have a point.


There are either no absolutes or some absolutes. It is not an absolute claim to say we must be skeptical. That is the scientific position, demonstrate absolutes or abandon them.
