Too much politics, not enough CvE.


Same problem with both, though: creationists run away from logical arguments and right-wing nuts run away from logical arguments.

Pure naturalism has no advantages with "evidence" when it comes to worldviews.


So you're suggesting that worldviews are just empty opinion and all equivalent?

Re: Free Faith...
Admin writes:

For now I'll just enforce the Forum Guidelines.


Faith subscribes to religious beliefs where it is impossible to follow to her God's guidelines - i.e. it is necessary to depend on His grace. If we want to keep creationists on this forum we really need separate guidelines for godly-minded people and socially-responsible people.

If the goal is to give Faith pause to contemplate her blatant violation of the forum rules by getting acerbically personal in her insult, then yes, I think 30 days is a bit harsh.


Thirty seconds wouldn't accomplish that goal, nor would thirty years. You can't punish a martyr.

In the Canadian Parliament, we call it "misleading the House."

Call it what you like, it still results in flaming pants.

Maybe just point out every tenth lie.

Creationists actually believe what they are saying, and certainly don't feel they're lying.


Spreading lies is still reprehensible, whether they "feel" they're lying or not. "Your Honour, I don't feel I was causing any problems by driving through a school zone at a hundred miles an hour dead drunk."

... you often insult her personally by asking her if she has ever read the bible....


Why would that be insulting? If I ask you if you've ever read Pearson's James Bond: The Authorized Biography of 007, are you insulted? Do you even have a right to be insulted?

What's insulting is somebody claiming to have read a book and then habitually contradicting everything it says.

Reality is suspended for the purpose of reasoned argumentation.


There isn't much point to "reasoning" if it isn't anchored in reality.

Of course we do. What other default can there be but reality?

You waste far too much energy on:
- complaining about being mistreated
- finding new ways to be mistreated
- being astonished, flabbergasted, etc. at everything any other poster says
- telling us how astonished, flabbergasted, etc. you are
- judging who is Christian and who is not
- etc.

If you were to put an ounce of thought into anything you said, you'd make everybody's experience here a lot better.


And our geese will blot out the sun.

Re: click buttons for cheers
When I click the cheer button, it flashes for a few seconds and that reverts back as if nothing was clicked.

I've had that happen from time to time for years. It happens a dozen times or so and then it works.

ABE: Didn't work today after 23 tries, ten blinks per try, although I may have lost count. The blinking gets hypnotic after a while.

"You have not yet responded" also didn't work (only tried that one eight times).

Edited by ringo, : No reason given.
