A funny thing happen on Craigslist

So in my travels I came across as I tend to do a post slagging a on-line publication called West Coast Truth all because it had the audacity of displaying a Z:MF banner on it's home page. Some unruly guy who turns out to be Greg Felton, author of the book "The Host and the Parasite" was busy trashing our movement with half-baked accusations and innuendo.

I debated with him for awhile and then he just began to bury the forum in "AVOID WCT AND THE ZEITGEIST MOVEMENT! THEY ARE CULTS!" type posts. At which point I have no choice but to back out, you can't argue with that.

Besides the forum seemed to be getting heated with some other people posting their views on Greg, and a few were pretty nasty. One stuck out and I thought I would reproduce it here. I thought it was funny, being on the receiving end of this it was pretty bang on. I am sure anyone else who has been on the receiving end of one of Greg Felton's tongue lashing would also find this funny.


Dude I don't know what debate you were looking at but the debate I was reading had team Z waaay ahead of team Felton. Team F likes to throw down nasty but where is his backup? If this was a real debate team F would have been laughed out of here long ago.

Team F:
Zeitgeist is crap. And your a (insert big word), (insert another big word), (insert one more big word here), child.

Team Z:
I refute your allegations. According to (insert author's name here) in his work (insert book name here) your proposition is untenable. Furthermore according to (author name) in (book reference) what we suggest is very reasonable. Lastly consult this link for yet another rebuttal to your point (insert link here).

Team F:
I refuse to entertain the twaddle of authors who are read by more people than my own books are. Make your own arguments and quit wasting my time so I can get to the part where I insult you some more and make up stuff about your position that you will not be able to refute because I will not allow you to quote anyone who is smarter and more respectable than me, which is pretty much everyone.

Team Z:
I rest my case.

I saw the negative comments about West Coast Truth, and you deserved everything you got.

You didn't even make an attempt to address the points the person you say was "Greg Felton" brought up. You bobbed and weaved and changed the subject.

Also, I am certain there was at least one more voice against WCT, so don't accuse people without proof
