Bearing in mind that this is a truely internaional list I don't
think my request to know my standpoint was worth a guffaw because
there are those who's standpoint differ from yours , and mine for
that matter. However for your benefit I will state my argument
from the "Innocent until proven Guilty" standpoint. I will post
it in a few days when I have written this lengthy tome, however,
if I have a truely valid argument will you concede???

Did I hit a nerve by perchance?? Debunkers have been doing this
for years and I have never heard you once complain about them
doing it when it confirmed your particular beliefs.

However I do not wish to become the victim of your wrath because
I hav'nt the time for it.

diCTionary dear chap please do learn to spell. Yes I have three
in the house, to which I refer often so that I do not
misunderstand your final statements said in your signiture.

Marlinspike (n) (Naut) Pointed iron tool used to seperate strands
of wire or rope.

Merlin is also the name of the Great Wizard who assisted the very
Great King Arthur on his many quests and carried him unto
