    1. assume absolutely everything and when your opponent protests that you have based your argument on an assumption, introduce accusations of sneering
    2. attribute non existent values to your adversary and proceed to create an argument around those fictional values
    3. feign interest with questions which lend themselves to obfuscation
    4. recruit similar minded flunkies to do your bidding
    5. in the face of overwhelming empirical evidence, divert the argument to some other thread
    6. feign civility and manners, taking the moral high ground when its expedient to do so
    7. appeal to popular opinion and other users known to have similar views
    8. sensationalize everything, level mountains and raise molehills to huge edifices.
    9. strain out every gnat and gulp down every camel
    10. If all of the above fail, simply make something up.

    actually i don't think many theists have made up their own religions, that role is
    reserved for the atheists among us.😵

    FYI, robbie's wheels fell off on this Thread 150191 an hour or so ago, and he is therefore perhaps feeling a wee bit indignant.

    No, robbie's wheels fell off WAY before that...

    In fact I am not sure he ever had his wheels on in the first place.

    Yeah, I was reading each item on that list and thinking to myself "this applies to you Robbie more than anyone else!", but then I remembered his usual "debating" form and declined to post a response

    You lied about either reading the PM or about it's content = LIAR

    Galveston accuses FMF of unethical behavior by forwarding the PM, but then sends you the content of the PM by some yet to be determined media = HYPOCRITE

    Scoundrels indeed...
