Dibbs
I call dibbs on arguments of authority. If you ever bother with your own topic, DB, you'll have to get my approval for all arguments of the form "Is not!"

By the authority invested in me under the dibbs rule, use of the argument "Becaaaa*use!" by apostates shall herein be ruled valid and supportable.
*Shakespeare multiple vowel rule.

With God's Assistance.
a certain amount of faith is required to believe that a donkey spoke w/ Gods [sic] assistance [sic]
Yet reading only one of your posts proves beyond unmitigated doubt that a donkey can type rubbish.
P.S.: You owe me royalties on your arguments from authority.

Nonconformists come one at a time.

Re: With God's Assistance.
If you have an argument, then just present it.
See my Message 18. I, knowing you had no argument except those of authority, place dibbs upon them. You, using nothing but arguments of authority, owe me royalties upon them. How could that be simpler? Jeez, I learned that back in, like, third grade, dude.
My argument as to "Can a valid, supportable reason be offered for de-conversion" is "Any reason one wants to use to dump unreasoned beliefs is valid and supportable if the apostate thinks it's valid and supportable, and no one else has claim to argue his decision otherwise."
As to giving you a reason for you to dump your sniveling, little god; why on Earth would I care to do that? I think it's funny. I like funny.
Forgive me if it wasnt you that claimed to be a ninth grader, in times past, I thought it was you but I could be mistaken
I tried it, I liked it, I moved on. The state perennial-ninth-grader is peculiar to you.
Ill take it nice and slow so you can follow along
Were I riding a one-peddle tricycle backwards while wearing flip-flops my dust would settle before you got your shoes tied.

The assertion of "unreasoned" is not an argument, its[sic] an assertion[sic]
"unreasoned" is neither an argument nor an assertion, it's a condition. The argument is "It's no ones business but his own; therefore, any reason he cares to posit is valid.".
But more importantly,
It appears to be your nature to stick 'buts' in where they belong.
, they are arguments of a logical and rational nature[sic]
The assertion of ", they are arguments of a logical and rational nature[sic]" is not an argument, it's an assertion. But, I'll be generous and pretend you said something meaningful. Your arguments in toto have been: The writers of the Bible were inspired and therefore could not be wrong; nor, judged to be wrong by the likes of the uninspired. Not logical; not rational, but clearly authoritarian. You broke my dibbs. Pay up.
I was right, you were the ninth grader[sic]
I'm fairly sure everyone here was a ninth grader. I'll even grant that you made it that far. It is nearly Christmas after all.

Dont[sic] worry, you will learn as you go along,[sic] not to make assertions you cannot support.
Which one of my assertions don't you agree with? That I don't care to offer you a reason; that I think it's funny; or, that I like funny? With the bar set so low, I'm pretty sure I can support all of those.
Thanks for admitting you do not have one[sic]
Technically, I didn't admit to not having one, I merely implied it. But, as it is nearly Christmas: I don't have a reason that you should forsake you sniveling, little god. No one does well, maybe your mother. But so long as it doesn't infringe upon my right of recognizing your puny god's snivelity you're entitled to your belief. This topic is not about you.

When cometh the day
We lowly ones
Through quiet reflection
And great dedication
Master the art of karate
Lo, we shall rise up
And then we'll make
The bugger's eyes water
Roger Waters
