Educational priorities?

  1. I guess the acedemics [sic] portion does not include spelling.

    • Maybe spelling is not considered a strength for those going into atheletics [sic]. No exceptions!

      • You need to correct “loacl” on your previous post!

        Sorry, see my web address for more…

    • Thanks, although I’m rather envious of your much more friendly style.

      • Much good it does me. My posts to Josh have been terse, as in brief and without pleasantries, just due to time restraints. My technique is to give the other person as little to object to as possible. I write humorous pieces, but pretty much cut all jokes out my counter-apologetics, as it just increases the chance of misunderstanding. It’s funny, if you give five ‘cast-iron’ points, then end on a jokey ‘cheap shot’ rejoinder, you can bet that the entirety of their reply will concentrate on that last point.

        The double post pointing out the typo is because I thought the first didn’t post…

        Frank Turek’s site used to be great because he’d debate on there himself. He once debated Christopher Hitchens, and afterwards he posted me (in the UK) copies of both his own book and Hitch’s – both signed to me!

        Turek barely posts on his own site and more, it seems to have been taken over by Jonathan McLatchie, I think of the Discovery Institute. And even he barely ever defends his posts, after a few (failed) attempts to engage with me. I say failed because he’d never address my actual arguments.

  3. Muphry’s Law, Tildeb – you might want to correct the spelling of ‘Local’ on your previous blog post.
