My first post...embarrassing.
Cool thread Straggler,

My cherry being popped, I thought I was setting the record straight with this pathetic gem. LOL

This thread is intended as an opportunity for a bit of self deprecating fun. Maybe some serious reflection if the mood so takes you. Especially if you have an EVC "journey" to tell.

It has been one cool learning experience. It got me back involved in things that I left behind when I quit college. It has also made me want to eventually (when time permits) finish school.

I came here because I was writing some blogs on creationist and the issues with ID in schools. I came here with the idea to antagonize a few fundies, have them lash out with their insanity, in hopes that I would get a few good talking points from what they said. Basically, I came here looking for a fight then I was going to leave.

But what I found was some of the smartest people I've ever had a chance to talk to. Discussions on topics that most people don't bother looking into. So I stuck around and got hooked on the actual debating.

It's been a lot of fun and hopefully I'll make a few friends in the process (which I have).

This thread isn't about debating the issues raised in linked to first posts. This thread is about people not points and as such is intended to be fairly uncontentious

Are you new here?

Re: Yesterday All My Troubles Seemed So far Away
A sub topic of this thread could be "My first post that got me suspended"

I of course have never (yet) been suspended.

I have only received 2, and banned from the Big Bang/Cosmology thread once, even though I felt being a prick was needed in that thread. And I say only 'cause there were cases where I expected to get peeled but, as luck should have it, I didn't.

I almost had a first recently; being suspended for not being upto the comedic standards of a pro. And I would have gladly accepted that one, having shat the bed with jokes in that post.

You haven't been suspended yet? Get the fuck out of here! I'm with bluegenes, pusssssyyyyy, or...maybe you're just really good at hiding the mean spirit with dem fancy college-type words. I go right for the curse words.

Re: Yesterday All My Troubles Seemed So far Away
Why does everyone find that soooo hard to believe?

Cuz you're a bit of a dick... in a good way, don't get me wrong.

Either that or my propensity for limiting my most insulting comments to comic verse, song and rap has thus far excluded me from moderator detection.

And this post has now brought you and your lyrics to their attention. Way to go!

Re: Yesterday All My Troubles Seemed So far Away
Always one to kick a man when he is down....So while you remain suspended and unable to reply.....

They let me out on good behaviour.

I looked this up. Banned from a whole forum!!! Way to go. But glad to see you got that revoked. The whole physics thing is where I first encountered you here and is where I figure your "passion" lies.

Yeah, I like that subject a bit too much for my own good. I think I know more than I do, until cave or son humble me and I retreat to a dark corner to cry in shame.

It's a good job most of us aren't subject to that rule.

I'll take it as a challenge!

Your spat with Rrhain has it's moments of amusingness but I suspect it is in danger of becoming as tedious as mine and RAZD's thang was a while ago.

Whenever you go after a heckler on stage, you run the risk of looking like a bully. At first, what you may be hitting them with could be hilarious, but after a while the crowd kinda takes their side instead of yours and it isn't as funny anymore.

I think I've enjoyed teasing that cigarette too much, but it's now running the risk of looking less and less amusing.

I thought you just wanted to compare him to an unpleasant old lady?

Or that
