You are claiming the middle ground in this discusion. That is fine to do but first you must show my position as dogmatic or not middle. I contend my position is middle....abortion is harmful negative but circumstances sometimes dictate its employement, thusly it is not always the absolutely worst choice in a spiritual context, bad choice it always is.
So you may add to, as in claiming to be middle, also, but to address me and reference dogmaticism...you must first prove or show such to be so....and then claim middle ground.
To simply address me, make statement and then claim the middle in a discussion..no, sorry things in discussion or debate do not work in that fashion.
To clarify. Prove my position isn't middle by pointing to flaws in my logic and hence the presence of dogmaticism, to simply state such....is not proving point.
So I reject your claim... this, what I support.... is not middle ground and thusly offer counter and await response...
Seems fairly clear.
Okay that did not help, it still doesn't make any sense of what you are saying. I didnt have any reference to dogmaticism, and therefore got nothing to prove, overall, even thought I gave a reply to you because you replied to me, it was mainly stating my opinion generally and it is not to argue or debate with you. Even though I didn't understand what you said the whole time in this discussion but I believe your stance on abortion is not much different from me, so I do not understand or know what you are talking about. Maybe you are misunderstanding me. But my point as I had said, to that reply earlier, It wasn't directed toward you AT ALL, it was directed at no one but you gave me a reply as if it was directed to you. So i am not interested at all in a debate with you whatsoever. I think you just misunderstood me or maybe in debate mood and can't clearly see what I am saying.
So we can end this here, I won't reply anymore, I stated what I believed so Im retrieving from this because I am not interested in a debate as I have said, you can accept it or not, same for everybody.
