    Logically, what if you're standing in your freezer?


    I did. Couldn't find it.
    Logically, this shows the limits of not only your knowledge, but your ability to research the truth of a matter.


    I never said He wasn't responsible.
    "Technically" you did (see yellow highlight):

    The first-born all died. Did God "kill" them or not? If so, then God sometimes kills those that "don't deserve it". If not, who was Moses erroneously quoting under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit?
    Technically the angel killed them. But they deserved it.


    You were assuming that I presumed all were guilty, from the moment of birth, of a capital offense.
    See green highlight above.

    Between the two of the above highlights in your quote, you either took issue with God's responsibility or you presumed they all deserved their fate ("guilty of a capital offense" is your current phraseology), or both. But in whichever is the case, you are being inconsistent and speaking against your own position ("talking in circles" was my previous phraseology). In other words, you are being illogical.


    Did you forget the rest of the conversation? I am mostly incapable of being illogical as a result of my Asperger's.
    Nope, didn't forget. I was hoping against hope, I suppose, that you were heading a different direction, as any human who claims logic as a super power is going to be hard to come to consensus with. On anything. Ever. But you've spelled it out pretty clearly.

    Fortunately, you have allowed an out for yourself by using the "mostly" caveat. So the following verses only "mostly" apply to you.
    Proverbs 25:14 Whoever boasts himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain.
    Proverbs 26:12 See you a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.
    Isaiah 5:21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes And clever in their own sight!

    And I want to tell you how honored I am to have been the recipient of all the illogic you've been saving up for the last few months, just to use it on replying to ME!

    I don't think you know the meaning of the word "logically."

    "Technically" you did (see yellow highlight):
    Who commanded the angel?

    See green highlight above.
    You're still assuming. I already told you that I was referring to adults.

    Between the two of the above highlights in your quote, you either took issue with God's responsibility or you presumed they all deserved their fate ("guilty of a capital offense" is your current phraseology), or both. But in whichever is the case, you are being inconsistent and speaking against your own position ("talking in circles" was my previous phraseology). In other words, you are being illogical.
    No, I'm being intentionally obstinate. Because your willful ignorance deserves it.

    Nope, didn't forget. I was hoping against hope, I suppose, that you were heading a different direction, as any human who claims logic as a super power is going to be hard to come to consensus with. On anything. Ever. But you've spelled it out pretty clearly.
    Super power? Are you a liberal? That would explain the stupidity.

    Fortunately, you have allowed an out for yourself by using the "mostly" caveat. So the following verses only "mostly" apply to you.

    I'm not boasting about anything. And, as I stated above, I'm intentionally being annoying.

    Fine. Be annoying on your own time, if you have nothing more to say that's useful, which I'd already concluded.

    This is my own time. And you're not worth valid discussion, because you won't listen.
