Just glancing over it again seems i've done that 9 point response in too much of a rush and in error i have missed that your A and B were defined earlier. Better, therefore, if i edit that text before you provide a further rebuttal. In any case i withdraw my "see how im reduced to guessing?" criticism.
Again, im generally too rushed to think at the moment. girlfriend has been moving house and all sorts of other stuff.
Apologies. Will return and give it my full attention when i can.
OK, Tim, I have revised and improved my response to point 1), and deleted points 2 3 and 4 since we are in agreement there. And for now, I've withheld my responses for 5 6 7 8 9 and 10, since they appear to need a fair bit more consideration and time and my first run at them was so rushed it was littered with mistakes.
I shall continue with 5 to 10 when i get time. Whther you respond to this now or when ive had further time to consider points 5 to 10 is your decision. I would be tempted to suggest that waiting until ive responded to everything might be wise, wince these things have a way of interrelating to each other. For example the Nietzsche criticism of Socrates is something you link to in a later paragraph but refer to in the answer to point 1, so it may be that i have more of a complete response later.
Thank you for your patience.
I have to meet with friends, vote, work and play poker over the next few days so i may not have much time to focus on this. But i'm very curious to see if we really disagree when all the semantics and tactics are thoroughly understood between the both of us. So it will earn my attention when i next have free time.
