No, you don't. Just because I have said it, doesn't make it true. I have not provided any evidence to back this up and it may well be that I am mis-remembering.
I take it that he does it in a “slightly different way” in the hope that we wouldn't notice he is attacking RJ specifically, he is just one of the more prolific examples.
I have just wasted significant time that I can't afford going about this the wrong way. I found about 50 threads that RJ started and was going through them each, looking at the thread, whether it was an attack on Evolution or science in general, whether it contained logical fallacies, whether his points were refuted, whether he had acknowledged the refutation and particularly whether he was repeating a previously refuted argument.
What I should have done was collected all of his posts
and gone through those. I really need to set up a database for this, rather than a spreadsheet. Unfortunately, this is a project I really can't afford to spend the time on. Maybe someone with spare time could have a go. I certainly don't mind if they want to apply the procedure to my posts as well.
It would certainly be interesting to see if there actually is any evidence to support my evaluation of RJ's (or anyone else's) behaviour.
