Let's say you ask me how I got to work. If I told you I drove my car, you would probably trust me. If I told you I took my helicopter, you'd probably be skeptical. You might trust me if a mutual friend confirmed it and said they flew in it.

Now, what if I told you I flew my Pegasus? What would it take for you to believe it? Why did you give this answer?

Because he's only got a unicorn!!!! ... Sorry, couldn't stop myself! Smile

A man blames his bad childhood on leprechauns. He claims they don't exist, but yet still says without a doubt that they stole all his money and then killed his parents. That's why he became Leprechaun-Man

Yes, because everyone has to do things the way you would do it. You are also now on ignore, as I see you needed the public attention of insulting me in this thread before I even came into it. Bye-bye! Yes

How about being less of a pedantic evasive shit, and answer the question? At this rate, you'll have no one left to talk to but PJ, 19, and Alla... Drinking Beverage

Please answer Robby's question mate. ... If you don't, I will not only insult you but also that shit 1997 model ford unicorn you ride about on and not ever give you a lift to work on my Mercedes pegasus! Smile

Alright. So, I started the new thread. For the forth time, here is the question:

Let's say you ask me how I got to work. If I told you I drove my car, you would probably trust me. If I told you I took my helicopter, you'd probably be skeptical. You might trust me if a mutual friend confirmed it and said they flew in it.

Yes, and I responded to the OP. You haven't addressed my response. See post 22.
Quote:For the forth time, here is the question:
If this was the important question, you should have put it in the OP. I would have responded already.

I'd likely think you're joking.
Quote:What would it take for you to believe it?
You could fly it in front of me.
Quote:Why did you give this answer?
The existence of a Pegasus has no effect on me, so there's no reason for me to actively consider it.

I addressed the OP, which didn't include that question. I don't see that it's evasive to fail to read his mind and realize that the questions in the OP weren't really the important ones. Angel

I'd likely think you're joking.

You would a priori dismiss this claim as a joke, and if pressed you would demand evidence?

Why?

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
