Its rule 10, Hooah. We expect civility out of intelligent people.

Re: Forum Rule#10
personally, I thought this topic more appropriate for Faith/Belief.

Two Weeks For David
I have taken action against Davidjay for again trolling and posting multiple off-topic posts on numerous topics.
DJJ writes:

I might get the right to hang in there for a few more days because one administrator and I agree on Paul and his unChristian words against the Lord...and his a-sexual teachings against women and the Lord himself.

I'm not sure who this administrator is...I certainly have never perceived Paul as unChristian. But we won't ever get the opportunity for a conversation because you can't keep your keyboard restrained. That by definition is trollish behavior. You sound like a decent guy to get to know, but in the digital world of social media, there are rules and protocol to follow if your goal is to actually communicate rather than talk talk talk and spam spam spam.
DJJ writes:

My writings justify me, and accuse the out of control frustrated evolutionists.

This is why your behavior is unacceptable. You have no need to justify yourself nor accuse anyone else. And yet you feel you do.

    Re: Bible Inerrancy thread
    I'll reopen it after a few hours but I want to encourage you to behave kinder towards others (such as GDR) and stop trying to make the thread all about what you believe as some sort of established fact---when it is not. You know the rules here...this isn't simply your private blog. Forum Guidelines

    Granted your opponents are often not any nicer to you....I saw the topic as getting out of hand. Let it cool down a few hours.

    Re: PorknCheese
    What I have decided to do is temporarily close his first topic and deal with the arguments in the ID Forum. I ask that all of you not try and overwhelm him or any viewer with your plethora of information, but, rather...take it slow and address the arguments being made by the ID proponents. You can start with the two researchers whom I referenced in my Admin reply to him. Make brief replies to specific arguments...don't attempt to teach a class. The ball is also in Pork n Cheeses corner to try and respond to your arguments perhaps by asking questions as he learns more about what ID is and how it differs from the science which you learned from in your professions.

    A lot of times you guys engage in light banter with each other in these topics and throw the whole thing off course.

    Re: PorknCheese
    Would you prefer to have no creationist, Intelligent Design, or otherwise opponents at all to debate with? Faith certainly doesn't qualify---she knows her own beliefs, but has no evidence-based argument with which to respond. MikeTheWiz never comes around much anymore. I saw an opportunity to promote an Intelligent Design Topic and I ran with it. Keep in mind that a lot of people read these topics who we never see. My only expectation is for you, JonF, RAZD, Tangle, Caffeine, dWise1, and others to conduct yourselves professionally, politely, and briefly..addressing the argument at an entry level pace that the rest of we readers can understand. If pork n cheese never replies or is again rude, this will be his last topic. That's all I have to say regarding my actions.

    Faith and Dwise1

    Thuggee Admin:
    I still say that nobody could possibly be as utterly clueless and unaware as Faith pretends to be. She's putting on an act like a typical creationist troll.

    And I still maintain that she does not worship the Christian God but rather an evil god whom she serves through lies. Given her pretend theological bend, I would identify her god as the Lord of Lies, the Prince of Darkness. All the evidence points in that direction.

    And I still ask that somebody explain to her those extremely simple facts that she willfully refuses to understand.

    Fair enough, lets go back and review the exchange. I am going to take this response over to General Discussion Of Moderation Procedures (aka 'The Whine List') Meet me there. *poof*....see? Magic can happen.

    OK lets review this exchange, Duane.

    I just was a bit aghast as to how you could have let this woman push your buttons to the point that you wanted to choke her! I rarely moderate most of our exchanges unless it gets into cuss words and/or blatant defamation of character.

    Here is the post in question which I moderated. I will reproduce it in full, for the peanut gallery to see:
    **************************************************************************

    Faith writes:

    I read it! What I'd said wasn't intended to be anything more than an attempt to say materialism and naturalism are basically the same words.


    Dwise1 writes:

    No you did not!!! As is blatantly obvious to all observers! You forking lying ####!

    Those are not basically the same words. You read nothing! You lying ####!

    As I stated in such clear terms that even a lying deceptive c##t such as yourself could not fail to comprehend:

    quote:
    What science uses is Methodological Naturalism. That takes no philosophical position concern the existence of the supernatural nor of any supernatural entities. Rather, it is the very practical realization that science cannot work with the supernatural. Period! That also means that supernaturalistic explanations cannot be used in science because there is no way to even begin to observe or test them.

    AdminPhat writes:

    Stop with these types of verbal reactions or face suspension.


    *************************************************************
    Seems to me that you reproduced the quote that you made and are accusing her of ignoring the point of the quote. Am I correct so far?
    OK, lets go back.

    Msg 1140--

    Dwise1 writes:

    Uh, still completely off the mark. You should have read what I had written!
    What ID calls "the Gospel of materialism" is Philosophical Materialism/Naturalism. That is a philosophical position that the natural universe is all that there is, that the supernatural does not exist. It has absolutely nothing to do with the naturalistic methods of science!

    What science uses is Methodological Naturalism. That takes no philosophical position concern the existence of the supernatural nor of any supernatural entities. Rather, it is the very practical realization that science cannot work with the supernatural. Period! That also means that supernaturalistic explanations cannot be used in science because there is no way to even begin to observe or test them.

    Now since you are going to continue to be willfully stoopid and refuse to read any more than one or two words, could somebody else please explain these very simple facts to this willfully stoopid ####?

    Msg 1141--

    Faith writes:

    I read it! What I'd said wasn't intended to be anything more than an attempt to say materialism and naturalism are basically the same words.

    My basic gripe was that you were letting Faith push your buttons. Perhaps she sees this in a different perspective than you do. Feel free to rant more and fully explain your case here. Faith is also free to defend her side of it.

    As a third party, perhaps I should start by asking the question: Are Materialism and Naturalism the same thing? I've no time to research, but I would assume that if anyone made such a claim they would know the answer.
