AchillesJaguar: Lol @ grammatical errors.

Not a very powerful counter-argument, dude.

What next? I'm ugly too?


If these are the fruits of your critical thinking prowess, I think I'll stick to mangoes.

Sir Loin: I don't know for sure if all Aardvarks are actually aardvarks. Some may be called aardvarks when, in fact, they are ant eaters

AchillesJaguar: Then those that were mistakenly taken to be aardvarks turned out not to be so after all.

Aardvarks cannot but be aardvarks.

Dude, this is just getting even more embarrassing.

Now, do you know any other cats that are not cats?

Well, that may or may not be true.

Alas, it contributes precisely nothing to our analysis of the tautological nature of natural selection theory.

Sir Loin: FFS, we've already agreed that natural selection takes place in the real world which if you insist makes it a tautology however there are certain members of wire who would argue against it.

Well, let them argue. It's more than you've done.

Any members are welcome to give me a non-circular characterization of the principle of natural selection.

I do enjoy a civilized discussion with someone knowledgable and intelligent.

You're just not hacking it so far, I'm afraid.

Sir Loin: no, just petty and irritating. I joined in because I thought there may be something of substance being said, instead I find you and your posts inane and insulting

AchillesJaguar: Well, I couldn't agree more. Let's get back to business:

Can you give me a non-circular characterization of the principle of natural selection?

If not, we might as well be bragging about our powerful theory that "all aardvarks are aardvarks".

Sir Loin: If you can pose a question of substance perhaps I could try to offer something after I've slept. Bit a serious question is needed to get a serious answer in return

So all we can say is "The capital of France is the capital of France."
