You're not responding to our posting because they are likely to lead
the public astray, because if this were the case then you would be
reponding to ALL postings countrary to your current thinking! Do you
do this? You do NOT! You repond to our postings because the opposite
is true. The public is pointed to the glaring inconsistencies, the
CONTRADICTIONS that exist in your precepts. This causes them to doubt
YOU, and it is THIS you are fretting over.
You have posters that postulate concepts so twisted that they might as
well be stating that the Moon is made of green cheese, and you and your
fellows don't touch them. There are posters who are literate and speak
with authority, but get into lengthy arguments with each other, clearly
ONE of them wrong, yet you find no need to enter into these debates to
ensure the public will not be led astray. You cannot be honest with
the public here, as you cannot be honest with yourself. You CANNOT
reconcile the contradictions we have been pointing out, and are chosing
to throw insults over your shoulder while you walk off. Admit it!
