Surely this was an absurd statement:

Unless you think that art is stored in swamps and forests with no care given to it. It wasn't a "pointless personal attack" it was asking what on Earth that "hole of logic" has to do with my argument? I mean, along your line of thought we can argue that art as a whole is completely worthless since it doesn't bring in the harvest ... ? What the heck does environmental hostility towards humans and art have to do with this discussion? Hence, that is the reason I found it absurd and vapid. We have clearly overcome these restrictions on lifespan for both humans and art!

Ah, and I leave holes you could drive a truck through yet you just state your opinion and back it up with absolutely nothing. Which position contributes more to the discussion at hand?

Ah, the perceived ad hominem attack is met with like response. I see you hold yourself to higher standards. Enjoy your religion and politics!
