another Bible, creation, science thread Part 2)

Metieval closed the original thread, http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1331746 following a suggestion from Jimb0 that the thread had been deliberately derailed. The "derailing" consisted in saying that there were factual errors in the video presented in the opening post for which comments were invited.
It seems a tad contradictory.
At metieval's request, I will add his resoning to the opening post:

The Original post in this thread is full of lies.

The derailing posted above was not what I claimed as derailing in the thread that I locked.

the derailing was the fact that Gerald said

and then proceeded to take it off topic... AFTER stating he had no desire to discuss the topic.

I'd appreciate at least a little bit of effort in a post to get the facts straight.... Instead of just post compiled of BS.

I like Jimbo but he's obviously led metieval astray by schooling him on the art of closing threads that aren't going as planned.

Feel free to go to SS/C and complain about me locking the thread if you don't feel that it was legit.

I seriously doubt you will though.... as you don't really have a leg to stand on.

Why is it easier just to bash people? because bashing is free. And probably because you know that you can't take it to the SS/C

Glad you re-opened the thread Martin - it wouldn't matter how many times someone discussed the OP and how many of it's errors were addressed, only the posts that agreed with it would be deemed legitimate, everything else would be lies and trolling.

Closing a thread when you don't like where it is heading is both cowardly and dishonest IMO.

I think the biggest fallacy is the statement "Light is the force that holds all things together" and then equating that with the bible as though it was the first documentation of light existing.

Light is a form of electromagnetic radiation. Electromagnetism is one of four fundamental interactions. The other three being: strong nuclear force, weak nuclear force and gravitation. Read more about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fundamental_force

How did Gerald take it off topic? By suggesting it was a lost cause to try and convince someone who places faith over knowledge?

Lying about why a thread was closed, is also dishonest.

You should post one then..... a real one. Not this copy "crap" that is the word of one single person.
Is thread derailing the equivalent of trolling if the OP willingly follows the wayward trend?

Yes, it would be if it were lying. Your post above shows that it is not lying at all.

Almost but no cookie.

It was to continue to post off topic, after stating that is was a lost cause.
I am pretty sure that you already knew that though. If not I'll let you prove it by editing the Original post in this thread.

We can be friends correct? and we do want to live by that ummmm. several weeks ago you made a post about correcting mistakes? so if you correct the OP, I'll correct my first post in this thread too.

Or wasn't it a mistake. hmm this is getting tricky..... /spin

If you can tell me in what way you consider that Gerald derailed the thread and demonstrate it to be true. As far as I can see, there are no mistakes in the opening post.
