Bill is dead!
AA is invalid because Bill cheated on Lois!
AA doesn't work because Bill got rich off the work of other people.
Bill did LSD, Bill was crying out for whiskey on his deathbed. Bill smoked like a train and died from emphysema. Bill was a Con-Man. Bill Plaigerized the Book.
What the hell does any of that have to do with anything?????
Seems that AA bashers have attended the Karl Rove school of Debating Techniques
Lesson #1: The first part of any response should be to personally attack the opponent.
Lesson #2: Put incorrect words into your opponent's mouth.
Lesson #3: Misconstrue your opponent's message purposely so as to build a straw man argument that is easier to knock down than your opponent's real argument.
Lesson #4: Take all of the weaknesses in your own position and project them onto your opponent, whether or not true. Later when the opponent picks up how the weakness is really yours, you can point to their unoriginality in throwing it back at you.
Lesson #5: Rather than addressing your opponent's points head-on, insult their intelligence instead and extrapolate your claim of their lack of intelligence as being the reason why their points fail.
Lesson #6: Purposely mislabel your points as "fact", so that it is harder for your opponent to question it.
Lesson #7: Repeat your lie over and over until it sinks in as a possible truth.
