Faith has many meanings, it would be very insolent of me to only attach one definition to the word. If you can not distinguish between the definitions that is not my fault but your own lack of understanding for the english vocabulary.

Yep, and you went with one.

This point has completely eluded him throughout his time here.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Oh goodie, he's going to tell us what we think. I love this part. Drinking Beverage

Have you considered the possibility that you're simply wrong?

As for faith, which one of us is prone to believe things in the absence of or contrary to the evidence?

By 'biblical' do you mean 'primal'?

That's what I was thinking. In the South, we use the phrase "Biblically" to refer to another phrase, "He knew her..." "...Biblically.", in reference to Genesis 4:1.

But yeah, CW, you just lost all respect I ever might have hoped to have for you.

You can fuck right off with that whole martyr complex, "You all react badly to what I say because there's something wrong with you", passive-aggressive, equivocating bullshit.

As my Drill Instructor once quipped, "If everyone else seems to be marching out of step, it's probably you."

What is the one common element in all of your failures?

I have a vague recollection of someone yelling "Stay right there or I'm gonna go all biblical on your ass!" just before running.

Yeah, that was probably a Good Idea™.
