Exercising Proverbs 26:4
Some of my favorite verses are:
Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.
Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit.
Once you know that these are your two options, deciding whether or not to post a response is simple. If posting just makes you part of the "argumentation game" then just shut up, but if you have a point of contention that the other person truly isn't aware of, then speak up.
This is an amusing response I got today. It's from someone who normally speaks intelligently:
There is a creationist model and not just a grab-bag of talking points!!?? Er, no. You mean, "One of the talkiing points is 'All mutations are bad, bad, bad!'"
Have you read the lead article of this thread? Your talking point is wrong, wrong, wrong.
Apparently he was frustrated that creationists actually think and do not just shout off talking points like he wanted them to. He made up a talking point that he wanted me to be spouting off, and then refuted his made-up talking point.
