I wouldn't have replied to Vernon's post itself but your long citation of Athanasius went well beyond "robust argument" about the theological issues in dispute & descended to just the type of personal attack I referred to. All quite sequitur.

I've found that when I'm wrong about something (it actually has happened a few times!) & have been called on it, that it's usually best to just be quiet & learn from the experience. A word to the wise.

  You tried to change the subject with your non sequitur "point", that's why I brought you back to it. :)
