I agree. In retrospect me darwing attention to your ad hominems is a distraction
from the real issue of "evolution". That's why I had not made an issue of
your ad hominems against me in the past. But in the heat of the moment I broke
my own rules.

I am terminating all discussion of your (or anyone else's) ad hominems right now.
Future messages about your ad hominems will be ignored.

This does not apply to the question of your destructive criticism of Christian
apologists, which is (and always was) a different issue.
