Anything to get off the subject how your out of context quoting,
eh Paul?

PC> a) Phil attacks Elaine - outlining a fairly standard "savannah" theory

Except that Phil didn't "attack" anyone -- he simply explained an
idea regarding the rise of bipedalism in hominids.

PC> b) Jim quotes Phil


PC> c) Paul quotes Jim quoting Phil

That should be "Paul leaves out context of quotes in order to make
erroneous claim about what was said".

PC> d) Alex flames Paul - for demonstrating ignorance

That should be "Alex makes mistake of thinking that Paul
accurately quoted Jim and Phil".

PC> e) Paul refers Alex to Jim's original
PC> f) Alex, Jim and Phil flame Paul for ignorance (again) and for

Apparently you consider it a flame when someone points out that
your statements do not match facts; that would not be a generally
held definition.

PC> Paul.

And thus Paul ends his attempt at spin-doctoring. Paul, you left out
the context of Phil's remarks so you could claim they were saying
something they clearly weren't. Face up to it, Paul -- you got caught.
