Deep-thinking lefty Bruce writes a 1,785 word post proving KFC doesn't turn NAZIs into Flying Spaghetti Monsters, or something. One thing he does prove: he's unsure if it's "premiss" or "premise", so he plays it safe by alternating. Try to read the whole thing, I dare you.

Update: Art Vandelay also suffers delusions of grandeur, as this comment attests:
Presuppositionalist apriorism also rears its ugly head in debates about whether atheists can be moral, whether evolutionists can be moral, etc.
"Presuppositionalist apriorism" may often come up in these guys' discussions but the rest of the universe ain't getting the message.

Update II: Big-brained-Bruce, master logician, in comments:
I almost pity people like you "J.F Beck".

For a start, it must be embarassing for you to have ot admit that you can't spell the plural form of "premise". The plural form is spelt "premisses" which you would familiar with if you had some basic education in logic.

The spelling police on the blogosphere are silly enough, but when they try to correct spelling that is already correct... It's an embarrasing, and intellectually dishonest ploy this type of red herring.
Near-pity from a leftard, cool.

Bruce should save that pity for himself; he's just made a fool of himself. "Premise" and "premiss" are interchangeable in some circumstances but the plural of premise is premises; the plural of premiss is premisses. Thanks for the education, Bruce.

Update III: Bruce's equally big-brained, school teacher friend Arthur Vandelay is an advocate of "plainer English", really. Unfortunately, he can't write either.

Update IV: Bruce accounts for his nonsensical post:
Incidentally, I wrote this post after a long day of not eating much; blood sugar will be back up tonight so blogging will return to some semblance of normal functionality
It's great to hear that Bruce's functionality will soon return to some semblance of normal. Jeez, compared to Bruce I'm Shakespeare.

Update V: Bruce unconvincingly claims his poor spelling, mangled language and poor reasoning are intentional. Brainiac has way more issues than I thought.

It is my considered opinion, after having read Bruces erudite thoughts, that he is, in fact a wanker.

Nice call Not Not Not Not Anon. Poor old Iain is fond of speculating about other peoples situations (e.g. whether bloggers have kids, what went wrong in Jeremy Sears marriage, Bruces prospects with the ladies) mainly because he has no life, no job and not much respect other than the nutjobs who hang around his putrid blog like flies on a runny crap. I am wondering what Mrs Hall would say if she knew what he does during the day, maybe someone should print off some of Iains 'work' and mail it to her...

This thread's limited appeal to readers doesn't make torturing Bruce any less fun.

Anonymous, right on champ, Iain Hall getting involved in an argument about spelling is like Amanda Vanstone calling the Olsen Twins fat.

If this was about spelling I would have pointed out that Bruce misspells leprechaun, concede and curiosity in his last comment. He also writes "appraise" when he means "apprise". Not wanting to appear petty, I didn't mention these little errors.

I'm easily amused.
