Re: Humanist Clout vs Theocratic Clout
Of course it's still a free country. You are free to obey your god to your hearts content. No one is going to deny you that right.

But everyone else is also free to obey their own gods or lack thereof without any interference from you.

Re: Humanist Clout vs Theocratic Clout
Recognize there is no such law except for you christians. Your laws do not apply to the rest of us. You can no longer dictate to the rest of non-christian society. Hell, you folk can't even dictate to your own anymore. 10,000 cults and everyone is different. Just like all the rest of the christian cults yours is a minority with no more say on the greater church than I.

Obey what you want how you want but don't expect the rest of us to follow.

Re: Humanist Clout vs Theocratic Clout
Wow, Percy just cut you off totally.

Is this supposed to be humorous? Wrong thread.

Yeah, I know. But when you get over the chuckles it's really childish.

I understand Faith may have goaded him on but, come on, man. He's not the crazy type like Faith. He has too much class for this.

Anyway, off topic. I stop.

Continued insults will not help. You know you can get in people's craw in a caustic way. Lighten up a little bit? Please?

Sorry, jar, I forgot to stop. I stop now. Promise.

Re: The Coming Apocalypse: Secular Humanist Version.
Nonbelievers will listen to defenders of atheist and humanism, but do not and will not adjust their beliefs to what is said and written.

Oh, let's not go that far. We're not obstinate ideologues. We do learn and mature. Especially when we're reading Daniel Dennett. What we don't do is adopt every tennent they spout without considerable thought. Whereas religionists are prone to accept and adopt any tennent their favored nutjob decides to spout just because they spout it.

Ok, so a bit pedantic.
