Re: Is Christianity Polytheistic?
The thread is over 370 posts and I don't see that you've made any progress with Straggler since you came into the discussion at 150. Your first post made the point clearly.

Now all I see are one line tit for tat posts that don't move the discussion forward and don't provide enough information for viewers to join the discussion.

I don't see a good case for reopening the thread so you can continue to tell Straggler how stupid his point is (Message 368) which is all you're doing with your response.

I'm not inclined to reopen the topic.

Definition of Species
I will reopen the thread, but please do not continue the off topic discussion that started about Message 87.

Reread the OP and get back on topic. Do not respond to posts after Message 86.

Meaning of Meaning
Since Bluejay has not abandoned the thread and agrees that your line of discussion is not in line with the thread topic, I'm not inclined to reopen the thread so that you can continue your own line of discussion.

I suggest if you wish to continue that line of discussion, you propose a new thread.

The thread will stay closed unless someone does make a case for reopening it to discuss the meaning of meaning as presented in the thread's OP.

Thanks for your request and your IDs are merged.

Re: Meaning of Meaning
We need a clear OP to be able to moderate the thread. Work on the title.

Re: Off Topic Vs On Topic
quote:
It is my request that this thread be reopened. Granted there was some off topic discussion, but it would be more prudent for moderation to be more tolerant towards the actual topic input. The baby needn't be thrown our with the bathwater.
If you had read the Admin Msg carefully, you would have noticed that the thread was not permanently closed.

quote:
It was the fulfilled prophecies and other evidenced texts of scripture which inspired me and made me wise as a youth, leading to my conversion from agnosticism to Christianity at an early age. I am suggesting to Straggler, the thread OP author that fulfilled prophecy is indeed one way for anyone, regardless of ideology to become wise and inspired.
Try a better approach. Since prophecies aren't typically wisdom oriented, show or explain the timeless wisdom that you feel is in the prophecy, don't just flop out prophecies again. The thread isn't about proving that the Bible is right or wrong. What was the actual wisdom?

quote:
It should be understood that prophecy is not all I've cited on this thread. The wisdom of Solomon was cited first by me. The wisdom and inspiration of the Bible is many faceted.
You do realize the Admin Msg wasn't just pointed at you, don't you? I gave credit to what was on topic.

That thread is a unique opportunity and most of the participants are turning it into the same old discussions. Are we so stuck in a rut that we can't share simple wisdom without dragging in our pet positions?

Share the verses that have supplied wisdom through the ages or the verses that have inspired people not to give up in day to day living.

I guess my expectations were too high.

The thread is open, please keep on topic.

Re: Prophecy vs Freewill
Yes, you did try to get the thread back on track. Thank you for that attempt.

Buterflytyrant started the snowball.

I will reopen the thread. Try to keep it on track since Frako doesn't seem to be taking care of his thread.
