"Quibble?" It's a very serious question.

Wow, how arrogant can a person get?

Of course, if you won't clarify what you want as "proof," you have no
basis for making such a sweeping statement.

And yet you speculate and call it science. Ah, the irony.

I'm sorry, your email was the funniest thing I've read in a while. "I
won't clarify what I mean by 'proof,' but I know you don't have any. I
won't say what evidence is in favor of my ideas, but you should take my
word for it that it's there." Typical pseudoscientific twaddle.

I've had more rational "arguments" come from the ICR.
