The correct term is "antecedent".

Wrong, it is in the OED 2nd Ed. of the multivolume set.

Also Naziism, Nazi-ism. [f. Nazi n. and a. + -ism.]
The political doctrines evolved and implemented by Adolf Hitler and his followers, esp. those relating to racial superiority, the all-powerful state, and the cult of the leader. So Nazist, Nazistic adjs.

It also has an attestation:
1934 Times 28 Feb. 14/3 Finally it is urged that the disinterested support given by Italy to Nazism should counsel higher respect on her part for Italian foreign policy. Ibid. 16 Mar. 20/4 A clever essay on the cultural aims of Nazi-ism. 1938 Ann. Reg. 1937 171 Chancellor Schuschnigg rejected the Italian suggestion that he should introduce a representative of Naziism into the Austrian Government. 1938 Times 17 Mar. 15/5 In Belgium there is already a semi-Nazist party of Germanic nationality looking for help abroad. 1938 New Statesman 25 June 1053/2 Quite recently+a new Nazistic party called the Christian Nationalist Socialist Front has been formed. 1940 A.

Huxley Relig. without Revelation (rev. ed.) iii. 63 Nazism was inherently self-destructive because of its claim to world domination by a small group. 1971 Nature 16 July 205/2 Feelings about the scientific community's relationship to Naziism. 1973 Guardian 29 Mar. 16/4 Nazism was the ultimate degradation of mankind, singular even in the history of vileness.

So you have shown your own ignorance in your effort to show that I am ignorant.

No shit. That is an editing error. I use the word antecedent probably 100 times in that thread, so your claim that I am unable to spell it is entirely implausible. You can see that there are posts before that where it is spelled correctly.

If it's not your intention to defend or join the belligerent shrieking at her, then I apologize. I'm sorry for assuming you were coming from the same point of view.

Atheism makes numerous positive truth claims which cannot be described as anything other than beliefs. This seems like such a silly argument, and I would hate to waste both your and my time on a meaningless semantic point.

Firstly, a little bit of reading comprehension would do you well since I never made the claim that you are unable to spell it correctly.

Secondly, your claim that Revenant77x is unable to spell "pompous" correctly is equally implausible for the very same reason.

Thirdly, the excuse that it's an editing error can be used for virtually any spelling error you have made since there has always been an older post in which you spelled the word correctly.

Either way you should refrain yourself from making generalizations.
Quote:Atheism makes numerous positive truth claims which cannot be described as anything other than beliefs.
Atheism is just a lack of belief&faith in anything supernatural nothing else.

As an agnostic atheist i make no claims that a God possibly cannot exist at all.

Dreams/Hallucinations/delusions are not evidence
Wishful thinking is not evidence
Disproved statements&Illogical conclusions are not evidence
Logical fallacies&Unsubstantiated claims are not evidence
Vague prophecies is not evidence
Data that requires a certain belief is not evidence

So what are you claiming if not that?

Quote:Secondly, your claim that Revenant77x is unable to spell "pompous" correctly is equally implausible for the very same reason.

No, because "pompas" and "pompous" are far too different from each other and they are inexplicable as typographic errors. Even in terms of phonemes "pompas" is incorrect.

(25-11-2013 02:37 PM)Revenant77x Wrote:  Micheal Moore is occasionally right sometimes wrong but nearly always pompous and unnecessarily divisive.

Most likely because he had recently seen the word. If you know the word you at least spell it with the correct phonemes because you know how it sounds.

Quote:Thirdly, the excuse that it's an editing error can be used for virtually any spelling error you have made since there has always been an older post in which you spelled the word correctly.

Um, no. That is an editing error. There were two contiguous instances of the word antecedent that were being edited.

You have asked me whether you have made a spelling error that spans three letters and I have shown you one. That is all there is to it.

That's entirely irrelevant to the issue of whether or not he can spell it correctly. He has demonstrated that he has the ability to do so, hence your claim to the contrary is evidently false.

You can make up any explanation after the fact; I'm not convinced.

Fair enough, I stand corrected.

For some reason it doesn't appear in Oxford's own online dictionary or any other one I've checked for that matter. Consider

RE: Mormonism: A White Supremacy Cult? (answer: yes)
Ah the internet, the only place where a topic of interest to this ex-mormon can turn into a grammar lesson in less than 12 hours.

Sadly, nothing in here that I haven't seen before. Though, I still find it perplexing that members can see this information, plus the myriad other facts poised against the LDS church, and still maintain the churches validity and sanctity. There's a rabbit hole to go down here, so I won't start down that path, but rather let whomever wishes to still believe in it, do so.

I'm only happy to say that I personally see more people leaving that church than joining it in my area of this suburban hell in mormonland. I call that a win.

"Good news, everyone!"
