You totally missed the point, which is why I stopped trying with you years ago.
GET OFF THE DAMN FORUM and then you'll have time.
LEARN WHERE YOU'RE IGNORANT instead of constantly yapping all over the place.
CHECK OUT WHAT PEOPLE SAY instead of just talking. (I actually quit the reading and contributing on the forum for about 6 months because there wasn't a single topic you weren't busy destroying.)
I see your busy list. I get it. It's no different for anyone else. "Busy" is the simplest excuse we can make. If you're to busy to learn, then stop talking.
When I was teaching, I didn't post on the forum because of time. If you had 30 mins like you said, then break the vid into two sessions, like you implied (I think you implied it). There's no rule that you have to watch it all at once or at all. What I was trying to point out is that you blather from ignorance, regularly. If you aren't taking input, then stop talking like you know anything. Whom should I believe, a Hebrew scholar and paleontologist, or you? The other side of the point was that you don't listen. Shut up and take input before you keep going.
I was a little embarrassed to post so wordy before, but it was better at the time than this bluntness. I'm trying to help you. What does it take to get through your thick head? That's a genuine question. This post is rude, but it's a different tact, per Ichabod Spencer.
Perhaps I am happy as I am. Dont expect to influence me as a faceless screen name. Those who do talk and advise me from this forum have known me for years, have probably met me, or spoken to me on the phone, I know and trust them.
You waltz in here once a year and expect me to watch and value your videos and links? I dont know you! Give me one reason why I should listen to your input? What you dont get Conrad, is that this was a community where some people posted everyday and made friendships, friendships so real, that trips were arranged across oceans and across state boarders for those regular members to meet up. In person. In the flesh. I dont care if you believe what I'm saying or not. This is a Forum, questions are asked, and everyone answers. The whole idea is to give your view. not to go swallow a bloody set of encyclopedia, and return ten months later with some undisputable scholarly Phd. Try to understand, I dont need your input to have valid and logical merit in a conversation. I dont have to aggree with you on matters of doctrine, or dogma. Dissagreeing with you doesnt make me ignorant. Your views are simply bias in an opposite direction. Theres always some hidden evidence that science is trying to conspire against, in your zeitgiest. Some of us arent so melodramatic! Finally...if you paid attention, you would know how little I post on this place, and how little I have posted in the last year and a half compared to what I used to post YEARS AGO when you were probably last here. More to the point, you would know WHY.
