Re: onifre started it
I have no idea either, but I must agree with Omni. It's your fault and you should man up.

Well in that case I take full responsibility and stand by my actions.

Whatever it is I started I hope it continues!

Maybe many suspensions coming
Which part of the topic title's

(NOT A DISCUSSION TOPIC!!!)

do you people not understand?

Is it that you think "blather" doesn't count as "discussion"?

Any replyer to this message will certainly get suspended. Maybe I'll get to the blatherers in general later.

What do you mean by "you people"? Sounds pretty racist to me.

Nothing to see here.

Edited by Larni, : No reason given.


The above ontological example models the zero premise to BB theory. It does so by applying the relative uniformity assumption that the alleged zero event eventually ontologically progressed from the compressed alleged sub-microscopic chaos to bloom/expand into all of the present observable order, more than it models the Biblical record evidence for the existence of Jehovah, the maximal Biblical god designer.

The explain to them any scientific investigation that explains the existence of things qualifies as science and as an explanation
-Attributed to Dawn Bertot Message 286

Does a query (thats a question Stile) that uses this physical reality, to look for an answer to its existence and properties become theoretical, considering its deductive conclusions are based against objective verifiable realities.

Coolbeans Shotgunning PMs
Coolbeans has started sending me PMs asking creationist questions that are unrelated to any discussions that we had been involved in. I'm certain that I'm not the only one to be subjected to this.

Our newest Archangel poster is just plain nuts:

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

I think the racist needs to go. Permanently.


“The human understanding when it has once adopted an opinion (either as being the received opinion or as being agreeable to itself) draws all things else to support and agree with it.” - Francis Bacon

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." - John Rogers

“A world that can be explained even with bad reasons is a familiar world. But, on the other hand, in a universe suddenly divested of illusions and lights, man feels an alien, a stranger. His exile is without remedy since he is deprived of the memory of a lost home or the hope of a promised land. This divorce between man and his life, the actor and his setting, is properly the feeling of absurdity.” – Albert Camus

"...the pious hope that by combining numerous little turds of variously tainted data, one can obtain a valuable result; but in fact, the outcome is merely a larger than average pile of shit." - Barash, David 1995.

New member "Scientist" is a spammer. Also probably an idiot, but definitely a spammer. There's no rule against being an idiot.

You are a disgusting , vile person.

I have another complaint about Theodoric whose MO seems to be nothing but posturing, snark and namecalling, tactics aimed at intimidation instead of sticking to the topic, as in Message 864

You are pitiful.

Hating evil is a good thing, idiot.


Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

I would say here something that was heard from an ecclesiastic of the most eminent degree; ‘That the intention of the Holy Ghost is to teach us how one goes to heaven, not how the heaven goes.’ Galileo Galilei 1615.

If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. Frederick Douglass

In the absence of PurpleDawn no one is moderating the religious forums. I can check threads when people think things are spiraling out of control, but the Morality without god thread seems to be on a fairly even keel.

In the interest of keeping things above board I jut want to mention that user kofh2u made a very rude comment in the discussion on Morality Without God, in post 905 he commented toward me

"You ought get OUT of the criminaal justice system because you are soft minded weak hearted lame brain"

That seems kinda personal and inappopriate

Well, except for the fact that Faith adamantly refuses to provide evidence to support even a single assertion after such being requested several times. Wasn't there a Forum Guideline about that? I think it was this one:

quote:
Points should be supported with evidence and reasoned argumentation. Address rebuttals through the introduction of additional evidence or by enlarging upon the argument. Do not repeat previous points without further elaboration. Avoid bare assertions.

Every single post she makes is a bare assertion.
