You post things on a discussion forum and then expect no one to challenge them?
When someone says "Give this stupidity a rest", that pretty much tells me the person is wanting me to shut up, so I don't exactly see how you were honestly offering a challenge. Sure, you repeated a few of the typical arguments you have before, as did others (which I have already addressed in various threads); but at a certain point, when you know two people are not on the same page (with a high probability of never changing the other person's particular stance), it's also just easier (less wasting time) to avoid them and move on. So, information you may not find useful or of interest (perhaps in your case, these types of posts are downright annoying; of which I guess anyone has the freedom to mock and insult as they so desire)... well, it doesn't mean others might not be interested (and not necessarily persons who are active members of CathInfo -- people are readers only
, as I once was). Although, clearly, given that the "Resignationist" position isn't all that popular on this forum, even if someone secretly holds to it, I can understand any tentativeness one may have in actually expressing it.
