First of all, I wasn't speaking about your private character, I
referred specifically to a public statement you made.
Second, Jesus condemned people to hell for calling others "fool." As
far as I know Jesus did not condemn anyone for pointing out that
someone was lying. In fact, Jesus pointed out some liars himself, and
there are many statements in the Bible condemning lying.
I have different approaches for different people, Mat, and I really
think I've got your number. The reason you ignored the things I
pointed out in this post
is because you can't handle the truth - and you know it. And it is
*because* you know that you can't handle the truth that when you
wrote this in your post #210

But that's all right, Mat. We already know that young earth
creationists like you just aren't interested the truth, because you
demonstrate it every time you use these kinds of blatantly false
statements from your rhetorical toolbox.

- Hi, everyone.
We know that "Mathew Maury" is using a pseudonym, but it just this
moment dawned on me that I shouldn't be too surprised if he also
happens to be a non-YEC who is pretending to be a YEC.
In which case, the joke's on me!
