Get rid of abelcainsbrother?

Can we get rid of this dude? He's impossible to argue with. He just claims things mindlessly over and over again, denies everything that doesn't agree with him and then just says "it's all lies" and that the opposite is true.

He spam-posts with the same denialist attitude in basically thread he infects and seems to be going out of his way to resurrect old threads and "answer" people who have been gone for months or years with the same kind of spamming nonsense.

As much as I like a good debunking once in a while, I like it more when there is at least the possibility of discussion. An actual back-and-forth. When the other guy is at least literate and does something more than mindlessly respond with "no it's not/it's lies/life doesn't evolve/that's not evidence" - to everything you write.

I do not know about getting rid of him, but in the meantime, you could always just ignore him. I am sure he he stops getting attraction, he will crawl back under the bridge he came from.

No. Trolling is, as far as I know, not a bannable offence. Just ignore him.

We have a history of not banning people just because we don't like them. I want to keep it that way.

I find him unintelligible which is why I asked if English is his native language. I have some hope there is a reason communication with him is near impossible. But I don't like the idea of people being silenced just because they are annoying. I think it would do more harm than good. He doesn't realize he's hurting his side more than helping so let him blabber. Obviously not my house but I enjoy dropping in. Are there any board features that allow you to mute someone? That way they can post away and any individual who doesn't want to see it can deal with people like that on an individual basis.

Yes. You can add people to your ignore list, but I don't see why you would want that, because every time that people posts and somebody else has a discussion with said person, the topic becomes unintelligible and incoherent.
Go to your account, you can make a "foe's" list.

Getting rid of him or shunning outright isn't the answer. Neither is attempting to reason with him apparently. Until he starts making sense posts on topic, I'm just going to respond with a meme in every case.

I did make a point way back that there does seem to be an attempt to push someone over the edge. You can see a pattern of how he responds to specific people, as in his method of repeating the mantra.

Chances of me muting someone are slim. But good to know the option is available. I was more asking so that others would know it's available if they really can't stomach anymore from acb.

Why would you want me banned?When it comes to science? I'm pretty much the only one who actually gives evidence to back up what I believe,so far nobody else has or does and instead just declares what they believe is true.You may not agree with me,but if you don't? you're going to have to ignore the truth and evidence I give to back up what I believe.I think some of you think if you just declare something is true and point out the majority believes something then it should change my mind but unless you can back it up with evidence then I will not change my mind because I have evidence to back up what I believe and evidence matters to me because it is the only thing we can go on to know the truth in our world.

If you pay attention to me eventually you're going to realize what I'm saying is true but you're also going to see I'm the only one who gives evidence to back up what I believe and if I reject your evidence then I explain why I reject it and you're going to realize I'm right after you calm down and think it over,you're going to say to yourself,he is right even if I disagreed with him at first.

The only way this won't happen is if you do not really care about the truth and evidence,if you are the type that believes things despite the lack of evidence and you really don't value the truth then no amount of evidence I give will change your mind but if you value the truth you will realize it.

If we talk about evolution science? You will reject it,even if you are an atheist,you will be angry that they tricked you especially if you are highly educated about it.I know you think there is a lot of evidence for evolution science but once we go through it,you will realize just how weak it really is and I think you'll be angry that they tricked you.

The only thing you need is intellectual honesty instead of playing dumb about the evidence for evolution and to stop denying what evolution has always been about.I would reject evolution science even if I was an atheist because I do not like to be played a fool by scientists or anybody.You can remain an atheist and reject evolution science and you should,let me show you.
