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.
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
