You're misleading the flow of this discussion...

Let's take it down the path that it is actually taking...

You say:"...if you are going to use the argument that there are gay pigeons, therefore homosexuality is acceptable in human society..."

First off, no one said anything about:

Homosexuality exists in nature = acceptability in human society


I came on here and didn't read the article carefully enough, the context in which I interpreted it is Big Bad RANDOMLY mentions homosexuality existing in nature, BeefNChedder using 'ok...if' to debunk his point, and you knocking BeefNCheeder in what, in my eyes, seem a little too near sighted of a response, in a, Ill give the dog a bone but I'll keep the meat kinda way; which it seems your standing firm on that one.

In the above context, i'll stand by my claims

As mentioned in the previous two posts, the part about nature, was an oversight on my part; if you want to knock me for anything feel free to knock me for that. But you didn't, therefore this is what is called... beating a dead horse. A tactic used by people, who are most interested in expanding the ego, than expanding the debate

"But you didn't, therefore this is what is called... beating a dead horse. A tactic used by people, who are most interested in expanding the ego, than expanding the debate."

Well, I can say the same thing of your post, so I guess we're even on that.

Conversely, I can also say that I was just trying to get the debate back on target as opposed to your conclusive statement above. (which you didn't actually support with example; you just made the statement as if it was an absolute)

Also, I could say that the above quote is another smoke screen to divert the topic into an ego vs. smoke screen debate instead of the actual topic at hand. But that would be giving into the bait you laid with above statement (which I guess I am doing).

Look, if you want to call me egotistical, fine. Whatever. But at least have the acumen and the courtesy to A) illustrate how it is exclusively an ego issue (as opposed to you just saying it is) or B) get back to the topic at hand (and thus proving me wrong on the smoke screen issue)

BTW:

"As mentioned in the previous two posts, the part about nature, was an oversight on my part; if you want to knock me for anything feel free to knock me for that."

Knock, knock...

"First off, no one said anything about:

Who's there?

"Conversely, I can also say that I was just trying to get the debate back on target as opposed to your conclusive statement above. (which you didn't actually support with example; you just made the statement as if it was an absolute)"

Well conversely, I could direct you to the subject of this thread, which on my browser reads "Why does Rhea County exists?" If, as you claim, your intentions were to get the subject back on track, you would have addressed the gay issue in Rhea County. Pro? Con? Undecided? Why do you feel this way? What ramifications will this have on the rest of the nation? Instead the bulk of your post was directed towards your issues with what I had to say, even though I had already reneged on those statements once I saw the proper context.

Now it's wise to take what you hear on the Internet with a grain of salt; however, I assure you that my first name is not Rhea, I'm not related to Brisco, and while I'm not well schooled in philosophy, I'm relatively secure in my existence. And no I'm not gay.

"Look, if you want to call me egotistical, fine. Whatever. But at least have the acumen and the courtesy to A) illustrate how it is exclusively an ego issue (as opposed to you just saying it is) or B) get back to the topic at hand (and thus proving me wrong on the smoke screen issue)"

A) By taking the final TWO lines of my post, inflating those couple lines so they the foundation of your post, constructed in such a way where you are obviously offended by the fact I may be insinuating you are egotistical. My illustration would only pale in comparison to yours.

B) In WHAT context? Do you want to ignore the first four or five posts and the article? Fine! Homosexuality exists in nature okay. Devouring ones young exists in nature okay. If, nature is used as a measuring stick regarding the legality of homosexual practices, then without fallacy, one CAN make the comparison. Simple, and not really a smokescreen pal.

"If, as you claim, your intentions were to get the subject back on track, you would have addressed the gay issue in Rhea County."

Or...what I had thought on the topic had already been stated.

"Instead the bulk of your post was directed towards your issues with what I had to say, even though I had already reneged on those statements once I saw the proper context."

My first post (retort to you) was before you reneged.

"A) By taking the final TWO lines of my post, inflating those couple lines so they the foundation of your post, constructed in such a way where you are obviously offended by the fact I may be insinuating you are egotistical. My illustration would only pale in comparison to yours."

Inflating...constructed in such a way...

Wow, I can use that to say ANYTHING! Inflating what I had to say in such a way I can make it look like I'm the King of Swedish Meatballs!

Obviously offended? Or...I could just not give a damn to discuss it and blew it off with a "fine. Whatever."

"legality of homosexuality...without fallacy" Pun aside...the legality of any issue does not include the right to hurt another (which was your original post). And nature wasn't being used as a measuring stick. It was used as an example. If anything...YOU made it the measuring stick.

Example does not equal measuring stick.

And, on the ego issue...I go back to:

"But you didn't, therefore this is what is called... beating a dead horse. A tactic used by people, who are most interested in expanding the ego, than expanding the debate."

Well, I can say the same thing of your post, so I guess we're even on that."

For further discussion on this already beaten to death topic that no longer even resembles the point/retort originally discussed...Please see my favorite shape..

Is the PM function broken? Just wondering because Nag and ThreepMe have posted the last six replies in this thread.

Yes...yes it is.

Since I'm almost responsible for half this thread, does it make me half gay?

And if so - which half?

I think its a fairly safe bet that this thread discussion went on longer than the actual voting discussion at Rhea County.
