Thanks. My opponent there is #2 on my list of 3 irritating 'opponents'. I've learned a great deal from him, though, and I think most of that lesson will really strengthen by debate skills in ways that apply to engaging theists.
BTW, with Sassan, be prepared for repetitive dogmatic assertions of misguided beliefs as fact. Engage if you find it entertaining, but know before hand that he will not take part in a meaningful exchange of ideas.
Welcom to TA, OOB! Glad you jumped into a discussion without being shy about expressing an opinion. I share that opinion, although I think Robert's words got taken out of context - there was plenty of other 'dickishness' though. Robert is actually a very level headed guy with great insight, so I hope you two can share some positives.
