Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
By the way.. i want yout o answetrthat directly. When I mention that it seems you take things personally is always in a direct answer to a sentence which is directly offensive to me. If you do not make any sentence with any directr personal attack I never suppose that your feelings are hurt.

i frankly can not udnerstand how someone can attack anotehr person and insult him if there is nothing personal involve, specially with name-calling.

I am asking you kindly in those instances to refrain from personal attack, that's all :)

Sorry if it sounded pa<tronizing.. but it was my guess. <br> Then why do you use offensive wordings in your comment?

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude

I tried being polite with you - but, after lots of bad arguments and careless accusations, patience wears thin. Thus you moved from insulting Dawkins in a crude way (what do you have against him "personally"?) - you modified it to "he's a very, very, very bad scientist." Am I supposed to treat remarks like that politely ? A merely very bad scientist makes errors in routine procedures in his own area - he doesn't develop new ideas which prompt debate which goes on for thirty years (whether finally right or wrong) - nor does he get get elected to the Royal Institution. Argue sensibly, provide some evidence and your views will be dealt with politely.

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner - that I moved to Nice.
