Re: Humanist Clout vs Theocratic Clout
Wow, Percy just cut you off totally.

Is this supposed to be humorous? Wrong thread.

Well, since he has not censored you in any way (peek shows what your spiel in full) it is hardly totalitarian.

She has no right to post on the site. It is a dick move by Percy, but it is funny and well he can do what he wants.

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.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Yeah, I know. But when you get over the chuckles it's really childish.

I understand Faith may have goaded him on but, come on, man. He's not the crazy type like Faith. He has too much class for this.

Anyway, off topic. I stop.

Back towards the topic.
The topic is "A Believers Critique Of The Humanist Manifesto" and the Harvard Divinity School which is certainly a voice of some believers has a page on the Humanist Manifestos as part of its Religious Literacy Project.

A simple critique of the Humanist Manifestos (there have been three) is as follows:

quote:
These “Humanist Manifestos” are not intended to serve as a timeless doctrine for humanists to follow, but rather seek to identify shared goals around which humanist-leaning people might choose to rally and work for the progress of society.

Continued insults will not help. You know you can get in people's craw in a caustic way. Lighten up a little bit? Please?

Sorry, jar, I forgot to stop. I stop now. Promise.

And he has not censored you. Everything you post can be seen through the peek function.

It isn't censorship

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.

SENSORS & CENSORS
Evidently Percy feels as if you are unrepentant over your choice of words and he thus totally censors your posts for the reason that people are now never forced to see your words unless they really want to see them. Perhaps he grew tired of being personally slandered by you and felt as if others may also feel that way. If he simply suspended you or banned you, it would give you cause to claim martyrdom, so he is allowing you the choice of leaving or not...only insisting that if you do stay you must stop attacking everybody who is of a different political persuasion to yourself. I personally think it is a bit extreme, but I can see his logic. Perhaps he feels as if you could change if you really wanted to and it is just that you refuse to change. I tend to attack nonbelievers myself, so I too will have to work on my tact.

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. ~RC Sproul
"A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes." ~Mark Twain "
~"We, humans, are engaged in an ongoing war of ideologies. I see it in this microcosm of EvC Forum just as I see it in the governments and attitudes of people throughout the world. Take your pick: Oppression or Seduction .
"~Thugpreacha

You can "get answers" by watching the ducks. That doesn't mean the answers are coming from them.~Ringo
