I was commenting more on Gadianton's stunning ability to find only those things which support his preconceived notions, and discard much more powerful logic and evidence that does not.

Note to anyone who isn't brainwashed... when Simple Simon claims "logic" and "evidence" are used in his arguments, there isn't any evidence or logic behind the claims.

Normally, yes.

Do you know he isn't on a road trip or other vacation?
Do you know he isn't in some parking garage where there is no service?
Do you know he isn't in a steel box (elevator)?
Do you know he isn't in some large data center with huge amounts of EMI interference?

I mean, really, there could be literally thousands of possibilities.

I nominate this clause for a special award from Cassius University as the most cogent explanation of Mormon apologetics I have seen on the board to date.


I'll consult with the administrators at Cassius.

Of course he doesn't have to find excuses for Will. We all know where Will is. Hiding.

OR maybe he's at a week-long dungeon party. not only is he not gonna get reception, but this board is the last thing on his mind.

Since nobody actually knows Will, this "dungeon party" is possible. From what I gather, it is more likely he is just somewhere with his family that does not have 3G/3GPP/3GPP-LTE/HSPA/HSPA+/4G/IEEE 802.16 or other data technology.

He might show up if Cam agrees not to pull his ponytail during the event.

I noticed this thread earlier today. Wondered why William had not yet replied, so I gave him a call on his cell phone. Turns out he's "on the road" and won't have internet service until later today or tomorrow. However, he did get quiet a chuckle from Dr. Cam...whatever's proposition. Even so, gentleman that he is, he insists that he is not interested in such a low-brow challenge.



LOL. This reminds me of Freethinker on ZLMB years ago. He was always in some sort of contact with DCP, and would often send messages to him and convey DCP's reply.

I guess Nomad and Will are as close as Freethinker and DCP used to be. ;)

Hi there Simon,

Do you think that it was more likely that Schryver was at a dungeon party than worried Cam might really be able to kick his ass?

This is sort of an apologetic move you know, if something is conceivable, then it is probably true.

A typical anti-Mormon tactic, Gadianton. I thought you were above such drivel.

I don't think it very likely that Will is at a "dungeon party" (whatever that means) at all. I think it is extremely likely (like 85% - 90%) likely that he is just somewhere with his family that does not have 3G/3GPP/3GPP-LTE/HSPA/HSPA+/4G/IEEE 802.16 or other data technology.

More like a playground bully who continually brags about his prowess, threatens and taunts, then when someone steps up, the bully runs away.

Anyone ever see The Pacifier? One of funniest scenes ever is the wrestling match!

Hello Mr. Ttribe,

Do you think American football is stupid? How about UFC? This is simply sport, my brother. Men box. Men spar. Men wage war, play baseball, and compete. My offer isn't any more stupid than 9 men hitting a ball with a wooden stick and running in a circle. Please try to be a little more open minded.

There's a difference between organized sport and a grudge match.

And now, we will determine once and for all if the Book of Abraham is true:

Well, well, well!

A guy leaves town for a few days, and all kinds of fun gets missed!

At any rate, after a top-secret meeting with two handsome gentlemen with impeccable tastes and intimate connections to people in high places (hint: I’m the one with the pronounced pot belly and pumpkin head):
Image

I then headed to this beautiful locale:
Image

Where, armed with my vintage Winchester Model 71:
Image

I slew the mighty buck (hint: I’m the one with the pronounced pot belly and pumpkin head):
Image

Only to return and discover (as I had been previously apprised by a “secret informant”) that, in my absence, I have been challenged to a duel of manhood:

My proposal: We link up at a gym, don some gear, and go at it. MMA, boxing, martial arts... Whatever... It's all allowed.

If you beat me into submission, you get to gloat to your heart's content. If I beat you into submission, you have to apologize, personally, to every female you've insulted on this board, and never insult them again.


Hearing of this quasi-effete metrosexual proposition, I naturally (as is my wont) opted to raise the stakes considerably, with a counter-proposal of a bona fide duel, employing the tools of true gentlemen:

Or, if my would-be foe is reluctant to risk his life for mere honor, I will consent (along with my trusty steed, Jonah), to a formal joust:

I anxiously await the reply to my manly proposition.
