"I find it absolutely hilarious that Mike preaches from his soapbox about people pawning off someone elses
ideas as their own when he does the same thing."
1) I was NOT on my soapbox about persons pawning off someone else's ideas as their own. I don't know what you're talking about here. Do you?
Why don't you cite something?
2) I don't pawn off the work of others as my own. I use good ethics in attribution. If I have slipped anywhere and failed to attribute a quote, it is a very rare thing. I don't think you can find an instance. And you don't show any way of explaining human progress if everyone was just restating one another's work.
"Your world views, your paradiagm if you will,
was shaped and molded by other people whether you like it or not."

"You are not as "original" as you think you are"
Response: Maybe I am EXACTLY as original as I think I am. You can't read my mind and have no standing to be taken seriously in such a statement.

Never even suggested it, eh?

Response: "In here" must refer to the ol' belfry. How do YOU, with your "literary style" so far displayed, practice the profession to Once again, you don't show any way of explaining human progress if everyone was just restating one another's work. One thing's sure; if your work improves, you will be borrowing more from me than I from you...
