That's what I'm wondering.
I'm wondering by what logical standard you call ANYTHING fallacious, how you account for that standard, and why that standard necessarily applies to my argument? Hardly makes sense to appeal to a universal, abstract, invariant standard of logic, which your worldview cannot account for.

Again, by what logical standard do you call ANYTHING 'nonsense,' how do you account for that standard, and why does that standard necessarily apply to my argument?

Problem is you have no absolute standard by which you can call ANYTHING 'intelligent,' or 'kind,' and cannot account for 'creativity,' or 'inspiration,' according to your worldview.
