This would not change the essence of my response to you.
I can accept that; I hope that you can accept that I have no reliable way of discerning which of your posts are more important to you than others.
You’ve expressed this doubt about my intentions before, which is another reason why I have been, and will continue to be, selective in my responses to you. Life is too short, and there’s too much work to be done, to interact with people who doubt your intentions. So much energy gets wasted.
You are perhaps the most prolific poster I have encountered at BioLogos. I don’t know who can keep up with you. I sure can’t.
That said, just because you write a “response” to me doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve answered me. And when you respond in ways that don’t incorporate acceptance of what I’ve explained to you, or, worse yet, misrepresentations of what I’ve said, I’d have been better off if you hadn’t responded.
Indeed, you have. Hence, the badger emoji.
Of course. Good-natured and light-hearted humor can be a blessing in these discussions. My “parlor game” comment had nothing to do with that, which I appreciate in a person; rather, it had to do with the gamemanship and flippancy that show up in some of your comments.
You are able to present more issues than any one person can reasonably address. You certainly differ with me on far more biblical issues than we will have time to address together.
Alas, I expect that you will continue to be disappointed in my rate of, or lack of, response to your posts. Let me therefore take this opportunity to say that I respect you as a serious person. However, there are too many differences between us, most notably our respective views on my intentions, for us to be able to have very many productive interactions in this forum.
