You're willing to dismiss this argument because, and here's the kicker, your concepts of my concept aren't what you think concepts should be.
No, I willing to dismiss the argument because it's logically inconsistent. Liking it or not liking it has nothing to do with it.

"Nothing is absolute" is an absolute. And you are a human.

Therefore your argument fails via your own argument. I don't know how many times this needs to be repeated.

Since we haven't discussed "my concept" this would appear to be a pretty cheap attempt at a strawman.

Nope, so far I've only pointed out how your view is wrong.

As always, you are more than welcome to your opinions. Thanks for your post.
