Ok. Fair enough. There is something I have done to anger you. That is not surprising.
About what have I lied? In spite of the sincerity of your beliefs, your remarks to others have been short retorts claiming "superior views", telling others they are not qualified to be in this discussion, and peppered with appeals to authority. Perhaps you do not consider that behavior to be demeaning toward others. Ok.
The closest you have come to a coherent debate is the link that you posted. Of those who have replied to this thread, I believe I am the only one who took the time to extract statements and provide counter-arguments to the best of my ability.
I am not particularly pleased with the first one since it involved replying to a certain "enthusiasm" for a kind of logic that I do not view as foundational when it comes to mathematics. It also involved replying to a certain "faith" in future science that I find misguided. So it had been more of a reaction than a response.
But, in the others I made the effort to deliberate thoughtfully about what you had said. I received no responses except for when I was searching for a document that you hoped would reinforce your appeals to authority.
I am not going to dig around for the other thread you started in which you said that you began the thread, in part, with the hope of hearing more about my disagreements with the mathematical community. Well, are you starting these threads for a productive discourse or are you starting these threads with hidden agendas? When I referred to harrassment and cowardly behavior it is because I perceive it to be the latter. You see it otherwise. Ok
Are you calling me a liar because I have misinterpreted your acts?
