Here’s the FACT though…..In the almost three years I have been posting here, I HAVE NEVER PLAGIARIZED A THING. You got that? I post quotes from primarily Protestant Scholars to back up my points and EVERY TIME, I list them along with the page number. You have falsely accused me or at least alluded to me as a possible plagiarizer.-snip-
Pick out a phrase that you think I didn’t write and simply plug it into a search engine. If you can find anything that I have ever plagiarized I will not post on this thread for three months. If you aren’t willing to take me up on the offer then I demand an apology.
Well, with this response post, I've given this guy three months off from CARM. After three years of posting, I think he's earned a vacation.
Update: The original CARM thread has been deleted. Below is my response.
One of Tim's earlier posts (#509) is taken from the book, Martin Luther: Catholic Critical Analysis and Praise.
Tim posts the following:
Take notice of the last bit of documentation: (Ibid., from: O'Connor, 15). If you scroll through Tim's post, try and locate what the "O'Connor" refers to. You'll notice, "O'Connor" is not defined in the post.Quote:
In the self published Lulu book Martin Luther: Catholic Critical Analysis and Praise, the author uses these same quotes in the same order on page 44:
Now, the rest of the quotes likewise come from this book, in more or less the same order. Tim first cites:Quote:
This is found on page 41-42:Quote:
This is on page 42:Quote:
The first quote is not from the book in question, but is a quote Tim has used for a while. According to Tim's post he says it's from LW 39 247-248. I checked, it isn't there.Quote:
The second quote is on page 42:
Tim uses this quote:Quote:
This quote is on page 43, but he probably took the wrong reference (Ibid., 278) while cutting and pasting:Quote:
The (Ibid., 278) goes with another quote on page 44:Quote:

Edited to add: I searched this thread for the book title, "Martin Luther: Catholic Critical Analysis and Praise". Unless I missed something, it is never cited by TimMD.
Edited to add again:
See you in 3 months Tim, enjoy your time away from CARM.Quote:
