Jessica reminds Rob that he could not have addressed it because she has been moderated since she TRIED and he keeps rejecting the posts!

Rob, you might have a point if you had not on 2/4/04 restated your view that Paul said he would not be an apostle if he had been appointed by a man.
To top it off you claimed that I had not yet addressed that point and when I do you skip over it and do not respond saying that you had already addressed it!

This is the point where you had claimed I had never addressed the point. I have been on moderation since I addressed the point and so it is impossible that you have answered it!

Rob, I did not make the original argument. Dave made the original argument. My only involvement has been with regards the fallacious manner of your challenge. Remember when I asked if it was a riddle and you said yes?
Well I have responded to your riddle. However, not before you fess up to your fallacy you want to expand the discussion with me.
I say, first things first. Fess up first and then we will talk.
