That works, right?
You conveniently missed the line following that that said:
To think that there is any sort of permanence to the knowledge you currently possess is simply a failing of the youth, believe it or not.
Thereby IMPLYING that it was a maturity issue, not an age issue.
People mature as they age it's true so they are related, and one could easily mistake one for the other.
I have met people I would term young who are in their 40s, and I knew people who I would've called old in their 20s.
He's the one who turned into which one of us is older, hence changing it into an age thing.
I used it as level of life thing, he used it like a number thing.
Simple as that.

Anyway, the best reply to from the guy who likes debates is "hey, that's your opinion but that doesn't mean you are right" so I guess the only thing to point out is that "it doesn't make me wrong either" and leave it at that. I'll everyone else have a crack at psuedo-zen-philosophy-teflon man. I think I've made my point pretty, thoroughly. I really can't go any further with a guy who claims to be an idiot because he doesn't know anything thus nothing can be ruled out in a debate that by calling his entire philosophy bullshit (even providing some counter reasons of why) to receive such ambiguous, empty responses.
Substanceless arguments are not rebuttals. And since, by his own admission, he can't rule out that I'm 100% wrong, which means I must be right, to whatever extent, when means I win.
Oh whatever, by virtue of the very nature of my philosophy (or any other set of rules) I can completely tear apart anything that purposefully attempts to do the same to my beliefs (or me) and not be wrong.
It's pretty much the same thing as self defense clauses in the law.
It's illegal for you to pull a gun on me, but it's not illegal for me to pull a gun back on you.
That's, oh so hypocritical.
I can't even begin to fathom how you possibly think you weren't in the wrong to begin with when you went to tell me that my beliefs are wrong, since the only way you could prove that would be to completely prove they were absolutely impossible.
How many people have died over religion in this world, and you try and act like there is nothing at all taboo about beliefs.
If you were tell someone you disagree with their beliefs it would be one thing, but you don't do this, you flat out tell people they are wrong, which is why they aren't, and you are.
There is no possible way you could be right at this point unless there was no way you could be wrong. You are not discussing, you are not debating, you are only being rude if you don't have something more than an opinion to go on every single time you ever tell anybody they are wrong in their beliefs. Every person has THE RIGHT (a right is indisputable) to have their own beliefs respected.
Your stunning lack of respect has had me judge you to be lacking in character, as well of lacking in substance for refusing to address my actual points on my philosophy and instead resorting to this foolish trickery.
I bid good day to you
sir, I am done talking to you.
