[list][*]Not selling ideology while drinking alone at your computer late at night, perhaps?

I like a drink now and then, but I really don't have a problem. To suggest that my efforts/ideas of the last (almost) two decades is merely a product of alcohol, is fucking utterly cheap on your part. Perhaps you've been hanging around Fallible too much, or wish to. Regardless, up your game or see your game end as she has discovered hers has, just tonight.

Sincerity and intelligence, even in an atheist. That's all I ask.

I'm not saying you have a problem, I'm saying it's not that uncommon for you to post late at night while under the influence, and that notwithstanding anything else, you're probably not at your most persuasive or strictly logical at those times.

If you want to give a credible account of the products of your intellect then doing so at other times is probably wise.

If I've got my facts wrong, please do correct me. There's no need for the insults.

There's not need for insults, indeed, yet here you've implied that my idealism is purely fueled by alcohol. :nono:

I've had to deal with all sorts of shit over the years, the worst being that some cnut accused me of threatening to murder him unless what, I'm not sure, but perhaps I missed the opportunity to 'sell' my first robe there. I also remember a handful+ of cases where I was 'insane'. And now the issue is that I'm just pissed. Or, at least, am just pissed when I post about idealism.

... If I hang around long enough, I'll surely be a drug addict of sorts too.

I didn't. I made five or six suggestions as to how you could "peddle" (your word) your idealism better, and you've honed in on an erroneous reading of one of them as a thin pretext for ignoring all the alternatives you have. I've explained what it actually meant, so you've no excuse for asking for a second clarification.

But to be clear. No, that is not what it says. I hope that's clear enough.

If it's not, let's try again with a cut down list:
  • Delivering on the promise of a well thought out argument for the things you believe?
  • Being open minded yourself and taking on board the places your conclusions err, or arguments falter and adapting your beliefs to new information?

When you show an interest in my own list, I'll give a shit. Two decades of atheism, enough said.

Ho hum.

I guess your philosophy isn't worth enough to answer the criticisms and asking about your list isn't enough of an interest for you to actually tell us what it is. I guess exaggerating a minor point about not posting whilst drunk, whilst posting while drunk is as good a debate as we can get for tonight.

A bit disappointing.

jamest seems to be labouring under the misapprehension that his participation is required for Fallible's 'game'.

Can someone remind me what my game is? If I ever knew I've forgotten.

Wouldn't be much of a game of Cluedo, it's always me that did it, apparently.
