First, the premises aren't required to be true for a valid argument google it.

Second, I'm not surprised you are having a hard time with this when you can't even remember you're response to Jame's original post. Check pg24 9th post up from the bottom.

Looks like you agreed with it to me. But, since my response was only based on the fact that I didn't want to be lumped in with the "tank theory" folk (which is why I responded to you in the first place), I won't hold it against you.

Third, you're criticizing me for getting your point wrong (which I didn't) while you miss my point? The post you were quoting did include a section about a wheel. But I guess my cleverness was blowing your mind so hard that you were unable to continue reading to find the part where I specifically mention that the discussion is more detailed than the 'tank theory' gives it credit for.
