Rating System
Hi, Dr. Sing.

Dr. Sing writes:

I only said that the rating sys is convenient for posters who are inconsiderate and biased.

I just went through and gave two of your posts a "5."

You'll see that doing so didn't change your rating at all: you're still at 1.8.

This is because every person only gets one vote in your rating. My vote is equal to the average of all the ratings I have given you. Since I had already given you a "5" on an earlier message, my vote didn't change when I added the other ratings. So, your overall rating also didn't change.

It's very difficult for anybody's personal bias to screw with the rating system because of the way it's set up. Your score is low because a lot of people dislike your posts, not because somebody with a bias is taking advantage of the system.

The only true Christians are... {drumroll please} the Mormons! Yup. Only the CLDS is truly Christian.

Yah sure, Granny. You mean Johnny Come Lately, Smith's religion who's after the fact BOM which is about a third plagerized Biblical stuff and the faceless characters, Maroni et al spun up from proverbial whole cloth. LOL.

When the LDS folks come to my door I invite them in for a friendly chat. I make a deal with them. Since the Bible came first, show me one fulfilled BOM prophecy or any one thing that the BOM affords which the Bible has not already afforded that will benefit my life here or in the hereafter and I'll become a Mormon. I've spent some time over the years with different ones. So far, LOL.

Having said the above, I commend the Mormons for stocking up survival goods in case of emergency etc. They're good to for anyone wanting geneology info. That's about it.

For the life of me, I can't understand how intelligent folks can't see through the Smith's jibberish. It's not even good literature, but alas, deception is powerful.

Are you old enough to remember the Heavens Gaters from plush Rancho Santa Fe; intelligent computer techys, 30 of them who followed their instructor's advice to cyanide themselves so as to connect up with Haley's Comet as it passed over the planet? Yah, deception is powerful. At least the Bible's stuff (lots of it) is coming to pass prezactly as prophesied.

Off topic? Hey, at least it's a break from the ratings yada. All I did was post a heads up on that to IchiBan and.......well, anyhoo, I forgot; you're athiest, aren't you? Thinking of becoming a Momon?

Hi Bluejay. The kicker is why people dislike posts. There's reasons why the majority rate relatively high, regardles of how they articulate and present their POV. I admit that I'm ideologically biased in how I would rate. If a message rings true with what makes sense to me, I would tend to rate it higher than I would for a message that I figured was nonsense from a highly rated member. I have no doubt but that that is generally the case, since birds of a feather flock together. I spent some time on Prophecy Talk creationist forum and got good ratings there by posting stuff like what I post here. Reason? Because birds of a feather flock together.

So, define a true christian in your own words, will you hooah?

Do you see the irony in this statement, Buz? I sure do.

It would have been ironical had he not included the expression
"alas". That tells me that he feels sorry that deception is often powerful enough to fool even the intelligent ones...and that the phrase"I can't understand how..." is more of a expression of feeling sorry rather than lacking the mental intellectual capacity to understand how....

I'm not the one who has a "no true scotsman fallacy" problem.

{abe}
See, dr., the difference is, I am not the one who makes the absurd statement that every time an "alleged" christian fucks up, he/she is not a "true" christian. If you believe in god of the christian bible, guess what? You are a christian.

I see the comedy has been left out to dry here as you lot feel attacked. Lighten up. I still stand by my statement that Buz is obviously the only true christian. ever.

here, let me rephrase what Buz said so i can clarify the irony that was lost on you.

You need to pay attention, Hooah, to the number of times I refer to my brethren/brothers and or sisters (in Christ Jesus), i.e. the elect and that I support my persecuted black Christian brothers and sisters in Africa, etc.

What's so ironic, Hooah? Did you read, "At least the Bible's stuff (lots of it) is coming to pass prezactly as prophesied" in the post to which you responded?

First, Granny was quoting an episode of a cartoon: it was a joke.
Second, you spelled "Moroni" wrong.
Third, you also spelled "plagiarized" wrong.
Fourth, apostates like you would obviously think our claim to the truth is illegitimate: that's what makes you apostates.
Fifth, you need to redo the section in your math class about fractions: you apparently have no concept about how big a "third" is.

If so, I will now compare you and your religion to Hitler and the Nazis, because you hate everybody but yourself, your kind killed my beloved prophet and his brother, and Godwin dictates that it is inevitable, anyway.

And, Heaven's Gate wasn't that long ago.

I say the same thing Buz says about any religion (albeit mainly chrisitanity).

OF course you would, darling. For you don't even understand what religion is. What should I say to someone who thinks God doesn't exist because He's not physically observed?....other than you have serious mental problems. When by definition God is a not physical being and you guys say that proven once by empiricism, you will believe He exists......tell me, what do I say in response????? Should I think that you don't understand faith, or that you are mentally derailed? Either option makes no difference to me.

Hi Buz,

I see that Dr Sing's isn't the only humour detector that's malfunctioning around here.

Yah sure, Granny. You mean Johnny Come Lately, Smith's religion

Actually, that was my mistake. I meant those snake-handler guys. They're the only real Christians.

Are you old enough to remember the Heavens Gaters from plush Rancho Santa Fe

Yes, I am old enough to recall the events of thirteen years ago. Not entirely sure what that has to do with anything though...

For the life of me, I can't understand how intelligent folks can't see through the Smith's jibberish.
...
At least the Bible's stuff (lots of it) is coming to pass prezactly as prophesied.

Looks like your irony meter could do with a service as well. Also, is "prezactly" a word? Does it mean "in no way similar to"?
