Trying to "disprove " with a wiki is like trying to put out a fire by throwing liquid oxygen at it

Wiki quoting means you don't have an argument

But... Sollvax. The wiki says liquids put out fires...

As far as wanting someone to hold your hand through the game, that takes all the fun out of it.

I love nice long walks in the country.
Especially if they're taken by people who annoy me!

About number 2 - a Wiki can be correct, just do independent fact checking. You should be doing that regardless of what source you are quoting.

And number 3 - just plain ignorant. What if the debate is about some point of theology? What? Everyone is wrong as soon as they mentioned an outside reference?

Think before you post, man. Overstating claims like yours is a more sure-fire way of losing any debate then your list.

Then he is making a mistake
I was refering to comparing the person you are Arguing with not people who you have not met

Wikis are unstable
I could go into a wiki right now and edit it to say anything I wished
Wiki is therefore an invalid source

professional theologians can not be trusted
it is in their interest to be inaccurate
Dawkins is the Anti-theologist he makes his living denying the mystical , spiritual and religious

And yet I DO win

because i never quote a wiki or a theologian and do not compare people with long dead political groups

that was actually done, some time ago...the wrong info was an obvious wrong date in an article about the ORF, it took 20 minutes to be corrected...by a 3rd independent party.

and yes, you win again...you allways do, thats why everybody takes you serious in this forum...i hope you are familiar with the concept of sarcasm

Every single post Sollvax did ever writte does nothing but show me how much education on formal logic and debate should be mandatory.

He is however amusing when you do understand it is foolish to take him seriously.
