Inb4 "hey I just identified Martin's lie, didn't I? And it is a lie because it has to be a lie because you people lie all the time!"

No the most likely scenario is that he lied. And the reason I say that is because I see so many lies from so many people every day here. It's just simple probability.
And the circle is complete.

I have some simple instructions for avoiding getting called out all the time. Tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. And be nice. Also, did I mention that Faid might be a pedophile? Hey, I'm merely raising the possibility here!
fyfp.

I'm really sorry that you people don't like me calling you out whenever you lie or spin or misrepresent. Some days I may not as much because I might not be in the mood, but these past few days I've been in the mood.
You're always in the mood for slander, Mr. "Raise the Possibility".

My edit was in place well before Martin's post. There is no question he either ignored it or his lying. Most likely the latter.
You do realize that a person works on their post before posting it, and if they're quoting someone else, their post will contain a pre-edited version?

It has happened to me repeatedly and I had missed edits in many posts, including yours. So it's "most likely" that your slandering fingers move faster than your brain.

So don't call others liars because they missed your tiny edit about this bunch of 'minutiae'.

No I Don't Preach. I teach. But your mind has to be open in order to learn. If you want to hear preaching, listen to Pingu. She's a master. Anyway I have no idea why this thing capitalizes randomly like this.
No Dave, you don't teach. You write as though you want to sound like you are lecturing. But it's just pompous nonsense.
You don't address any objections to what you present.
You think an anecdote is evidence. It's not.
You are incapable of teaching because you are incapable of learning.
if you really believe what you are saying, then prove it to me with item number one on the saving agriculture thread. I'm calling your bluff.
It's already been proven.

"Dave, here's a whole bunch of actual fucking research that shows 'hoof action' does not have the effect Savory claims, and impaction of soil causes-"

"IT'S ALL GARBAGE PROPAGANDA!!!!!"

Let's take number one from my list and talk about it in the saving agriculture thread, shall we? I will attempt to teach you about that topic and you stop me whenever you feel like I'm preaching instead of teaching. In other words let's examine your claim.
The first hint is your use of the verb "teach". Typical preaching.

Fun fact:
There's a Greek song about goats.

It's a traditional rizitiko from Crete, and it talks about the species of wild mountain goat that's endemic to the island.

Well, not so much about the goats, as to the goats: The singer asks the goats where they live, where their winter shelters are. The goats respond (because of course they do) and say that their places are the precipices and cliffs, their winter abodes are the high peaks and the mountain caves are their ancestral homes.

And that's more or less the whole song. It doesn't seem that significant, but it has carried great cutural and emotional weight through many generations of Greeks.

Mainly because it's not actually a song about goats, but about freedom.

Coincidence?

I think not.


I thought I would be hard to find it on youtube, turns out it's extremely easy. I picked a less conventional cover:

How did the self-control part evolve?
Like vox said, not a simple explanation, and one you have failed to honestly engage in in the past.
If you really wanted to learn, there are folks here far more qualified than I to explain it and, gosh, they've tried.
I would like to see your side become honest and admit that you don't have any explanation. Just as you don't have any explanation for how life got started on Earth. Just as you don't have any explanation for the origin of diversity of species.
So you know nothing about the subject, but you know "our side" has no explanation.

How are you so sure about that?

Maybe we should ask the Albatross.

:bleeeeerrrrghhhh:

The minutiae I'm talking about is why would you care so much whether I realize or not that there are certain types of goats that can climb trees? What difference does that make to anything anyone is talking about?
You get so wrapped around the axle about s*** that doesn't even matter.
That's a fair point, and perhaps you should have made it BEFORE calliing Martin a liar on the basis of that very "minutiae".

Get it?

Wouldn't it be neat if we could go like 10 pages without seeing the word Nazi? That has gotten really stupid.
You can always use the ignore function, dave. And I mean actually use, it, not pretend that you do.
One thing that is worth noting and I'm surprised it doesn't come up more often with this crowd is comparison of human sexuality with other animals sexuality. And I use the word other for your benefit, not mine. If it was up to me I would not use that word because I don't think that humans are just another animal.

Anyway I deal with farm animals and if you put a bull in with a bunch of cows guess what's going to happen? Pretty much the same thing is going to happen that most college freshmen boys would like to have happen at a frat party where the sister sorority is invited. My point is... Biology is what it is. But there's an interesting difference between cows and humans , namely, humans have some degree of self-control whereas bulls do not. Does  anyone else find this interesting?
Apparently albatrosses and royal penguins have more self-control than both. How's that for 'interesting?

"displaying her wares"

They aren't wares Dave. 


To many women, they are. And they know how to use them to manipulate and control men.
Oh FFS.

ETA lol, literally ninja'd

Poor persecuted dave. People misrepresenting him, by missing his 'at least mine aren't' edit.

Meanwhile, he can always "raise the possibility" that another forum member is a pedophile, if he likes. That will help ease off the burden of constant oppression and misrepresentation.

Woohoo was an appropriate comment in the context I used it. But you've got to use your brain.
you really should learn to read my mind!

After your "woo hoo" comment, I'm not sure I want to.
Oh come on.  Cut the moralistic crap.

It's not much different from YOUR mind in this respect ... which naturally thinks sexual thoughts upon seeing a shapely woman displaying her curves (whether she's 15 or 50) ... all that matters is puberty ... when the curves start to develop, men notice.  Period.  End of story. If you deny that you have these thoughts, then you are lying (or you are gay).  It's a quite natural physiological response in most men ... much as male dog responds to a female dog in heat.  And it forms the basis of the "sex sells" industry in the marketing world.  Come on, man.  Be real.

Dave, I pointed out to you ages ago that it is your stupid attempts at justifying cheering some child bride being bartered away for cows that is bringing out the creepy. But you forged right ahead and tried to re-define "child" in stead.

Like you saying "I will admit that if a female - regardless of age - is "displaying her wares" I'm going to notice and like it."
with this post you are confirming that you are not honest. I had hope for you in the beginning, but now I think you are becoming like Faid who is probably the most dishonest person at this forum.
Fuck you too, you despicable pretentious slanderer. Respond to my posts (where I'm quoting YOUR OWN WORDS) if you have the balls. it will make you look less of a coward than constantly shit-talking about me to others.

Or put me "on ignore" (HAH!) again, and display your hypocrisy.
