Re: Theodoric
Thank you for my first Post of the Month Nomination. Only took me 10 years and over 5100 posts. Then again my style of argumentation does not lend itself to nominations like this.
I am humbled and honored.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

Rrhain provides a clear and detailed response
Author: Rrhain
Forum: Coffee House
Thread: After Palmyra ISIS Targets Monuments on U.S. Soil
Message #: 53
**********************************************************
Our thespian and wordsmith Rrhain did what I thought was a bangup job on this post. The thread contained many points of view regarding symbolism, authoritarianism, fascism and free expression. The author of the thread, Jon, started with this observation:
quote:
From petitioning university presidents to silence political speech to the destruction of historical sites thought heretical, the Fascist Left has been pulling pages right out of the books of some of history's greatest turds in their effort to shelter themselves and others from a world they find distasteful and - oh no! - offensive; to erase everything that does not align with their worldview.
In my opinion, Rrhain made a strong case for what the Confederate Flag represents. The Comic he posted was the best part! Two thumbs up!

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. —RC Sproul

Edge makes it simple, obvious and irrefutable.
Message 58 of the thread The Story in the Rocks - Southwestern U.S. may be one of the most significant posts I've seen here at EvC.
Wish I had done it.

Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!
