Quoth The Daily Show: \"Why bother researching an answer when just saying it is so much faster?\"

Appeal to authority.

Baaaaa. I baalieve what I'm told to baalieve!

Appeal to authority, plus some really nice spin in paragraph 2 - logically reduce it and it implies that reading up will get you accused of ignorance, so you might as well do nothing and actually be ignorant.
8/27/2006 4:29:07 PM
Can you say \"wall of ignorance\"?
Seriously, learn what it is you believe before you proclaim that you believe it.
8/27/2006 4:48:18 PM
That's quite a tower of ignorance you've built there. Most people hate to have their minds imprisoned, but you've gone and built the prison, walked in, shut the door from the inside, and slipped the key out under the door. (I almost said that you threw the key out the window, but I'm pretty sure this mental prison doesn't have windows -- too much possibility of seeing something you don't want to see.)

...wherever the leading authorities in YEC say viruses come from, that's what I believe.
In other words, understanding the concepts and forming your own opinions are beyond your abilities.

\"I know what you were doing. It would just be a waste of my time to spend the couple of hours it would require for me to hunt up the information in the first place.\"
The Fundiebabble to English translator returned this result:
\"You were trying to corner me with facts. I wish I could refute your assertions with real evidence, but I know there is none. Even if I weren't too lazy to look it up, you wouldn't accept my specious evidence. Waaaa.\"
\"Then whatever I say, I could be accused of using the wrong words, or being ignorant of the latest developments in science.\"
Yes, that is essentially the point. You ARE ignorant of even the most basic science.
\"In reality, your question was an invitation to an argument.\"
Nothing wrong with that. Can't you support your assertions? Oh, that's right, you can't use the right words and you are ignorant of the most basic science. Sorry.
\"You don't really want to know what I think about where viruses come from.\"
No, really I don't, but I'm curious as to how you arrived at your position and why you maintain it in the face of overwhelming evidence in favor of the ToE.
\"The answer to your question is: wherever the leading authorities in YEC say viruses come from, that's what I believe.\"
So, you don't even know what you believe? You simply let dimwits like Duane Gish and Dr. Dino speak for you? Wow! You're dumber than I thought.

Appeal to authority.
Not quite. Appeal to lunatics! YEC's have no authority at all.

You should be a politian FW, you not only dodge the question but throw in ad-hominems!

FallingWaters is falling through the cracks...
8/27/2006 9:53:37 PM
The best part of fundieism is being able to make outrageous claims, then refusing to back them up except with some variation of \"goddidit!\"
It's the ultimate defense!
8/27/2006 10:46:43 PM
Damn that 'God of Gaps' looms mighty large in your world doesn't he buddy!
It's amazing how you can use faith as a substitute for knowledge isn't it. It makes you criminally stupid, but you don't care, you're too busy getting high on Jesus.

David DG: Love the 'windows' bit. Priceless.
Just love FallingWaters and the admitting that she doesn't know, doesn't care to know, can predict the whole argument in advance where he/she loses, so just gives up on the starting line.
\"I believe that....um.....whatever my peers say is right. I am so confident that I would stake my life on whatever the answer is!\"
8/28/2006 6:47:34 AM
\"I don't have an answer, and I don't want to be accused of ignorance, so I'll plead ignorance, instead\"
Brilliant strategy, there.
8/28/2006 9:54:11 PM
To paraphrase my mom, if the leading authorities in YEC told you to jump off a cliff ...?
In fact, FallingWaters, they did! No need to trouble yourself researching it - trust me, it's there. Just jump.

FallingWaters applied to the local powerplant, and in the written exam, when asked about the correct safety procedures for handling reactor waste wrote:

Do you know where the authorities say viruses come from?, they say that they are living entities with no genetical stuff, as a rest from a more primitive form of life which demonstrates that many living forms have evolved. Unfortunately, YOU DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT MODERN SCIENCE, and you fear that.
9/11/2006 9:41:42 PM
And yet the leading authorities in actual science, you know with real degrees, evidence and common sense are all idiots and liars.
9/17/2008 10:44:54 PM
Thinking hurts that much?

"the leading authorities in YEC"

Okay. Then what is it the “authorities” in YEC say about viruses?
We can progress from there.
