I believe agnostic is officially not taking a stand .... an atheist can take a stand based on the overwhelming evidence ...which in this case is even beyond a reasonable doubt ( people are executed on less evidence). The atrheist can say there is no god or supernatural and still allow a statistically insignificant probability for error.
Since you offer them in lieu of answering a direct question, you are not only committing the fallacy, but point it out even as you deny it. Odd.
But, yes, we know that you did not invent skepticism yesterday. Thanks for clearing that up. :)
There are people I could quote as well in an appeal to authority? Really? So why waste all this time thinking for myself?
I am curious as to why it is you cannot directly answer a question, but have to wander off onto an unrelated tangent, talking down to people as if you were the first person to get an education.
Yes, I'm familiar with Zeno's paradoxes, but they are only mind exercises, not true paradoxes (which, of course, don't actually exist).
This has nothing whatsoever to do with whether or not 2+2 is equal to 17.
You do not obfuscate well.
And I don't think you have yet answered the question as to whether or not you were certain that the entire Chinese army is not currently residing in your ass.
As I said, I wanted to make it as easy as possible for you. Certainly, if there were even one soldier of any ethnicity, let alone an entire army complete with equipment and armaments, you'd feel the worse for wear and would, no doubt, notice the intrusion.
How childish. I think you are finding your position increasingly indefensible. Probably something to do with the lack of a military presence in your nether regions.
So pick up your toys and go home if you can't win.
