Sword instructs Infidel

It is not uncommon for people with a high IQ to communicate in a fashion that people with normal IQ's have a difficult time understanding. I'm beginning to comprehend that comments from people with high IQs, such as yours, generally contain a plethora of insults. In your comments of Aug 22/06 you stated that my "hero Winston Churchill was instrumental in 'giving away' the large chunk of Palestinian territory to Jordan".

Now here is my simple request. Can you provide a reference to verify this statement? Now please note, I fully understand your need to hurl insults and derogatory remarks at me and I do not object if you do so in providing a simple answer to the question above. But please amidst the insults, do answer the question.

Another point of yours that I find puzzling is your intellectual dissertation regarding the relationship between Scotland and Britain. I did not state or allege that Scotland was not a part of Britain, what I did say based on conversations with my Scottish friends is that they preferred a reference to their homeland as Scotland rather than Britain. I have a dear lady friend, whom I drive to church every Sabbath, and she always refers to her home as Scotland. Last year she went home to visit, and she distinctly told me that she was going to Scotland. Therefore I referenced Sir Balfour's home as Scotland. I know that you consider me a moron, but do you find it difficult to believe that I knew that Sir Balfour was a member of the British Parliament, particularly when I stated it? Here is my quote from Aug 21, "Balfour was a Scottish Jew and not British although he was a member of the British Parliament".

In this regard, Canada is also an interesting country. For instance, people who live in Quebec, a province of Canada, often refer to themselves as Quebecois rather than Canadians. That does not mean that they deny being Canadians. Referring to yourself as Scottish does not negate you being British. So while you may have had a need to provide the insults, and substantiate your uncommonly high IQ, clearly your explanation regarding Scotland and Britain may not have been required.

My last remarks are regarding your allegation that I copied the remarks related to the moon god. Of course I did, 99% of my knowledge, which is probably 1% of yours comes from reading books and information from the internet. Where in the world do you think I got the information regarding the Hebrew words for "GOD"? In the future, should I specifically focus information for you, I will provide references. I apologize most profusely as I noted you frequently provided information without references and obviously I followed your example without your permission. I say "FIE" on Me! I'm contemplating on repenting for this indescretion in dust and ashes.
