Good morning, Torben.
Fire away :) Ian, you may want to refresh your memory on the forum rules in regards to (*Ad hominem argument - criticizing or attacking the person who proposed the argument (personal attack) in an attempt to discredit the argument. It is also used when an opponent is unable to find fault with an argument, yet for various reasons, the opponent disagrees with it.) Argumentum ad hominem? Well, such would include behaviours as labelling someone a 'Pharisee', wouldn't it? The fact is that I find you rather intriguing, Torben. Your arrogance I can handle, of course, given that I've been dealing with self-righteous Revivalists for over 15 years. But I've very rarely encountered someone who is so dismissive of the facts, simply because he believes himself to be more informed, knowledgeable and wise than the facts actually warrant. You honestly believe your own press, don't you? I think you actually believe that I haven't addressed your previous arguments, perhaps you honestly think I'm incapable of doing so? I was quite serious when I suggested to you earlier that you overrate your capacity; it seems you gravely underrate mine.
What I'm interested in discovering, Torben, is whether or not you've always been this way. Is what I'm seeing the fruit of your established character? Or has something been 'lost in the recent translation' due to the dissonance that follows rejection from the CAI? I've received several conflicting emails from your former associates. Some reckon I should go harder on you than I have, others suggest that I should give you quite a bit of lattitude. I suppose I'm trying to decide if you're worth the effort of educating, or if you're simply another serial pest who is wasting my time, and on whom I should 'lower boom', once and for all.
I do not mind at all folks - fire away. But this serves once more (stopped counting) to reveal Ian's attitude. My attitude is known well enough, and is something of a constant here. But your attitude is quite different, and what's being demonstrated is quite troubling.
