And you sir are missing your vision. Look at the illustrations I have provided you and tell me it's not a human.

It's not a human being, i.e. a person.

You are not making a thinking argument - you are just emoting.

And you have no attributions for those photos. Without a source, they are not evidence of anything.

So you are missing your vision. Are you saying I booted up ol' MS Paint and squiggled some murders for you? Your nitpicking is just as bad an argument as you claim mine to be.

Asking for evidence and attribution is not nitpicking. You continue to make unthinking, emotional arguments.

A picture with a sarcastic caption isn't emotional. It stands by itself.

And have I already stated my use of the frontal lobe?

It is precisely that, it does not stand by itself as evidence.

Quote:And have I already stated my use of the frontal lobe?

Stated, yes. Demonstrated, no.

A picture does. Look at the feet, arms, head. The x-ray showed a developed spine and ribcage. Seems like a person to me.

Without my frontal lobe, how could I be typing?

"Seems like a person to me." Emotion, not evidence.

And again, unattributed pictures are not evidence of anything.

It's not about winning, it's about learning.

It's about thinking, knowledge, methodology, evidence, science, ethics, and morality; and being open to ideas.

No, it's about winning. And you've out maneuvered me for the final strike, so enjoy your rep, this thread is closed.
