Re: Summations on Motley Flood Topic
I read the topic. I stand by my summation. I respect your methodology as much as I respect secular science, but it must be pointed out how the two approaches differ. I believe that the cartoon describes it quite well.

You have a right to voice your methodology as do your opponents.

My hope is that everyone gets better at expressing themselves and stops the personal attacks (and reactions to such attacks)

Hopefully, we here at EvC are learning to coexist. Nobody is being singled out or banned (or even suspended) because we all have earned our place here at EvC. It is unfortunate that you do not have too many other creationists to help you make your case. Usually, I enjoy reading what you have to say.

Re: Concerns About Thread A Book about the Anti-Trump Conspiracy
Percy writes:

The thread's originator should begin talking about what's in the book. So far the originator is avoiding their own topic and being unresponsive to questions about it.


Faith has already basically answered your question.
Faith,msg 1 writes:

I gave up a long time ago saying anything about it here or to anyone except people who share my views.

Faith is making it plain that she started this topic as a place to voice her views without appeasing the Left through the demand to provide evidence backing the validity of her views.
Faith writes:

Guilty as charged. Please act accordingly.

As the moderator of this thread, I am relaxing my demands to focus solely on the book, as the responses have been more civil of late. If the thread gets out of line, I may close it at times until people simmer down...but you all are doing better so far.

Subjectivism may very well undermine Christianity.

Re: Why no promotion of proposed topics?
Sorry I overlooked these. Both look like well thought out topics.

Re: another protest
You have the RIGHT Idea. God knows none of us would want to get LEFT Behind!

On a serious note, though Faith Do you honestly think that the Leftists will get Left behind while Heaven is full of Right Wing Authoritarians? I can almost guarantee that as many will be chosen from both political spectrums equally. God is no respecter of persons nor political ideologies. Quit defending the Right and attacking the Left. You are wasting your time here on earth in so doing.

Edited by Phat, : No reason given.

Response To Personal Rant
If by moderators you mean me, I was participating only as a member. All I did was promote the new member in the hope that he would be welcomed rather than criticized right off the bat. I am beginning to agree with Theodoric's early assessment that the topic was answered and should be closed only because Ski seems to no longer be participating. Though I did rant and go off-topic, a fact I will readily admit, I would never go so far as to suspend a group of ideologues simply for dogpiling a conservative. If I did, that group would whine far louder than Faith ever does...about unfairness, and moderator responsibility and oppression and bias and unprofessionalism and all that schtick. The point of my rant, though it leaned personal, was that either side of the political spectrum can be capable of unforgiving attitudes. You cant simply hide behind science forever...it can only do so much for your case.

Re: ****** ********** ****** (Phats 2 cents)
Actually I can see Percy's logic. Faith wants to be seen as the righteous one. She begs to be suspended because in her mind it would prove that EvC is a leftist totalitarian site. All that is happening, however, is that she is being asked to stop pigeonholing every argument into a Leftist Agenda Conspiracy, and she refuses to do so, getting ever more creative at finding new ways to bash in minds. We all are somewhat guilty of this at times, for our forum has become a small group of people who know each others habits and attitudes...sort of like a huge dysfunctional family. I do feel Faith is being singled out, but only as a test dummy. Percy is refining the software. She insists that Trump is a good authoritarian and supports Republican Authoritarianism for the good of the country yet balks at authoritarian censorship preventing hate speech at her own local watering hole. But as has been pointed out, we all can clearly see what she is saying if we so choose. Basically the default option--for her anyway--is to have lost the right to be heard. It is now a privilege for her viewers to hear her. It is no longer a right that they MUST do so.
