I don't think I said anything specific that required exhaustive research. You're trying to construct a thesis while I'm trying to have a casual argument. Europe was denser than North America during colonial times -- it would be silly to do exhaustive research on such an obvious statement. European culture is more interested in ownership than was Native American culture -- ditto. The point is that the substance of my argument does not require we know all the details. In fact, too many details can sometimes be confusing and distracting. Furthermore, I don't think pointing your finger and calling somebody immoral is a good way to conduct oneself in an argument.

To be honest, I'm not even sure what your main point of dispute is. You haven't directly challenged my original claims (those about the immorality of genocide and the tendency for humans to conquer), you've only nitpicked the details of my argument. State your general position, please, because we could dwell on the details forever.
