    Ok Kieps. No Kieps. I do not have a degree, or a diploma. My current (and past) employers may beg to differ. You seem to profess some knowledge; why not share it?

    I am Zimbabwean. We followed the GCSE syllabus, so my French is better than my Afrikaans. I do speak a dialect of Afrikaans, but Kaapse Taal seems, in my experience - having learnt it exclusively by travelling on taxis - to consist of a large number of verbs, adverbs and adjectives, but they...

    I note that you have abandoned our discussion after I asked for your credentials as a scientist - to be delivered via PM. I wonder why that is?

    Ok Kieps Ok Kieps Yes, Kieps. No, Kieps. I, on the other hand, would be quite keen to read your thesis. You can PM a link to it for me.

    OK Kieps. To be fair, I'm not convinced that you have any idea about what it is to be a scientist. I'm somewhat flattered that my private life has become part of your **** bank. Thanks for that. Excellent observation! I am behaving like a child who has been trained to question everything. To...

    Ok. I do love this idea - recently pioneered by Cosmik - that there is no reason to prove what you claim because this is "not a scientific paper". That absolves you all from trying to actually provide proof, and instead you can spout as much nonsense as you wish. Well, sorry. The real world is...

    Certain unfeasible foetuses make it to full term. Is that not the premise of this whole discussion? They do, however, tend to some level of mental deficiency if they do get so far.

    RIght-whingers are riddled with idiots who support the death of a mother/host over the rights of the blastocyst whose viability is of fairly uneven odds.

    Ok. There is no way for us to understand each other when you do not understand what, exactly, is an unsubstantiated claim. There is that thing about bringing facts - verified facts - to the discussion that do help your argument. We often refer to that as "verification". Also called...

    Really? Basic science is not that hard, konfab.

    I understand you don't do complex thinking nor understanding. I will try to help you with that in future. I expect Konfab to substantiate himself. I feel no need to provide a rationale to defend my own position until the person making the claim provides some form of evidence. At that point we...

    I would be interested as to your sources. So, yes, please.

    Such as? It is not me, demanding accuracy, it is the convention of civilised conversation that calls for some level of due diligence when proposing a verifiable fact. Ok Kieps. I'm not actually making the claim. Would you care to back that up with some verifiable facts?

    Asking for evidence to support a fairly contentious claim is not sea-lioning. (Although I will admit to have been unfailingly polite.) Later edit: that pinneped is a seal, not a sea lion. You are welcome.

    This is the fundamental misunderstanding, and I think it is linked to science denialism (notwithstanding Kieps claims to be a "scientist") The majority of miscarriages are MURDER, except "we" can only blame "god" for those, and he's not so easily shamed as a woman who terminates a pregnancy. A...
