Sorry...but I take it that you dont agree with what this individual
says. That is fine and dandy, I have no idea what they said, but as an
educated individual dont you think it is more appropriete to answer,
refuse, refute, agree, disagree, or argue your feelings on the matter in
an intelligent manner than to scoff and insult somebody for their beliefs
or even the position they take? Education and enlightenment is not
about screaming at somebody that they are wrong but exploring all avenues
and aspects of what is said. So what if they are wrong. Present them
your ideas and treat them as equals and as human beings. If you kick a
dog when he craps on the floor he will learn not to do it, but he will
hate and despise you for kicking him. Education is about nurture.
