E's only "agenda" seems to be prevention of any and all means of controlling human population growth. . . .

No...his/her only agenda seems to be controlling people's sex lives and prevention of sex except in very limited circumstances.

It has been said Larry Summers and John Roberts have both suffered from "the smartest person in the room syndrome" where they tend to beat people over the head with their intellect. Roberts has done a good job pulling back on that. As a result, he has been able to persuade people, he says, over to his side where he once might have alienated them.

I dunno. Maybe I should hold back, too. Thoughts on that topic?
What's the point of "winning" a debate if you don't make any impact at all?
I mean what other reason is there?

To feel better about yourself?

Likely...though, IIRC from other threads, EE has children. Shocking!

No, Mr. Eeeee22895 I think you're not nearly as intelligent as you'd like to think you are, and have proven this in many of your posts. Now you're merely trolling for attention...and look at me not being able to resist feeding it to you. Ah well, at least I've called a spade a spade, and you're free to continue riling everyone by telling them what they should believe. Ain't life grand?

And no, your definitely is not iron clad and was disproven numerous times, all of which you either ignored or simply gloated about how you were 'right'.
OK. Please frame for us the quote of even one example of my definition being disproven. Let's have ONE quote. Time to put up or slink away.
