Yes, I agree with you Mark. Work needs to be done to seperate the one from the other. Maybe one day when I retire and have time on my hands I'll have a go at it.
But to answer Arnie now: What you say it also basically correct amd I partially accept the rebuke. But in using the ad hominem rebuttal one needs to look a little further at some aspects of the original arguer's methods - in this case Nibs's.
Where a proponent makes allegations based on experiences he claims to have had 50 or more years in the past and there is no possible way now of proving the allegations either as correct or false or to substantiate them in any other way, and the whole argument rests in its entirety on the said alleger's accusations which he makes repeatedly and in the comfort of knowing that no one can refute them, and one observes further that this person presents nothing other than such irrefutable allegations, then I think the label of "nutter" has some merit and is justified.
In the one talk he gave where he went beyond this - the tape transcript - I gave him full credit for it.
I like it when you post Leon , but i wish you could be specific about which of the alleger's accusations your referring to.
As many accusations have been confirmed by other sources.
