It would be difficult to find more explicit evidence that you come to this topic not out of a rational interest in human origins but to jeer [than in your image of 3 young people jeering] .

That's your self-aggrandizing, delusional bigotry speaking.

My rational interest in human origins involved actually going through an accreditation process with one of the best universities in the world, then getting a job teaching it, and spending my life learning about the evidence for it.

Your 'interest' is to contrive a load of bollocks on the internet in favour of your belief that religious fantasy trumps the findings of scientific study, and to express extended disdain for a group of people you demean to boost your flagging ego./So yeah, pop that back in your pipe lad.

Thus starts your latest responses, which play out to 19 pages in Word and in which you made some embarrassing arguments. In response to a group image of a haka war dance, demonstrating that human threats generally don’t involve showing the upper teeth, you said that the word “haka” refers to many different ceremonial displays, and then you put up pics of individual Mauri people grimacing.

You also embarrassingly responded to images comparing the damage done by chimps by biting humans with what a human can do by biting, by linking to other biting attacks by humans, in one of which a person bites off “half a cheek”. When chimps are able to bite off hands and even feet, let alone entire faces.

Your antagonism is carrying you away here and it’s unedifying. Your anxiety to disagree with me about absolutely everything harms your position. With your background you should be able to condescendingly agree about some things, with potentially devastating effect. But the dialectic is driving you into extremity. And one of the things I would like to discuss is the effect of the creationist-evolutionist schism on the presentation of evolution.

And by the way, I’m not a self-aggrandizing, delusional bigot or a narcissist as you accuse of, I’m just pretty stubborn. I have some insight into why I see things differently than youse, these have little to do with illusions about my smartness or arguing ability. They have a lot to do with the creative alchemical effect that external circumstances and relations have had on me.
