    It is truly amazing to me that Creationists are so often hypocritical to the point of hilarity. Huggybear starts a thread boldly promoting a quote-mine that he cut and paste from his favorite "creation ministry" website by actually refering to it as a "quote mine!" When I quote mine from his own comments to show how dishonest and useless a tactic it is, he squeals like a stuck pig.

    Kudos to you for taking the time to go through some of these mined quotes and showing the dishonesty behind them, if only for the lurkers. It is obvious that huggybear deserves no consideration, but some lurkers might benefit. I did not have the patience.

    So it's your belief he's a troll?

    if someone continually posts redicoulous things that will get people upset (due to it's immense stupidity), that person is a troll.

    I once saw a quote that said "a good troll is someone no one realize is a troll." an example---dad. he ingeniously had people replying, getting mad at, and spending countless hours reading crap. it took forever before someone finally said "wait a darn minute.....he might just be trolling."

    this guy is just another having fun at our expense.

    If the best troll is one no one realizes is a troll, then how do we determine who the really good trolls are? In any case, your description of what a troll is fits 90% of creationists who post here. Are you claiming the vast majority of creationists who post here are trolls?

    there aren't many creationists here on this board. most are athiests. that 90 percent figure is kinda misleading.

    No, to be a good troll, you have to firstly be a troll. You have to deceive people - you can't actually take your own trash seriously.

    You apparently haven't seen the full history of dad's posts. Most people mention the possibility of a troll at some point early on, but us seasoned dad-ers know such mentions aren't going to do any good.

    I said that 90% of the creationists who post here match your description of a troll. Do you think most of the creationists who post here are trolls?

    I agree with you. Dad is actually in my opinion the apex of creationist thinking. He has completetly given up on reality and now relies entirely on total ad hoc rationalization based on his personal understanding of scripture.

    A "good" troll is someone, which might take a while for a lot of people to realize they are trolls.

    but maybe the thread starter and dad aren't trolls. maybe I'm just in denial that people *honestly* believe such arguments are good. but then again, I've seen the same from some athiests on GA.

    Even if they are real, what are you trying to accomplish with these quotes?
