Re: The Evolution Of The God Character
Ahh yes it does. And Fred Phelps was a real person to.

Did you mean Landover Baptist Church

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?

Re: The Evolution Of The God Character
For the lurkers out there. There's a law for that.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poe%27s_law

quote:
Poe's law is an adage of Internet culture stating that, without a clear indicator of the author's intent, it is impossible to create a parody of extreme views so obviously exaggerated that it cannot be mistaken by some readers for a sincere expression of the views being parodied.

Re: Every God or god is made up!
Things like this show why you are a horrible choice as an moderator. I realize this is not a posting under your admin hat, but your vehement condemnation of those who believe differently than you spills over. It is similar to how a non-christian feels going into a courtroom with your 10 commandments posted. In neither place would I feel that I would be treated fairly.

You will see, however.

People have been waiting since the first hominid conceived of the idea of a god or gods. Your own book acknowledges multiple gods.

I can learn nothing more from any of you.

And that is your problem, not ours.

I see you went inactive. Crisis of faith? I do not understand why the religious get so worked up about people having different beliefs. The only reason it effects them is because they let it. It really does not reflect well on the confidence they have in their own beliefs.

Re: The whole world likes noodles
As an ordained Pastafarian minister and is nice to see another passing on the message of his Noodliness.
One thing I really like about being a Pastafarian is that I can hold other religious views also.
I am also an ordained minister in the Church of the Latter Day Dude. Yes I am a Dudeist Priest.
Both churches help me fulfill my spiritual needs and I following the tenets of each has made me a better person. Well, in my own eyes.

Re: Where The Con Stops and Logic Begins
Only because your brain is keeping you from believing anything unevidenced.

What a very odd thing to say. Why would I believe anything of which there is no evidence? That would be very silly.
Should I believe in Coyote?
If not, why your unevidenced demon and not this one?

Re: Where The Con Stops and Logic Begins
So you agree that belief in one is just as legitimate as belief in the other?

Re: Where The Con Stops and Logic Begins
So, your only reason to accept one over the other is cultural bias.
Because all you stated was gobbledygook word salad. Maybe you might want to make a coherent argument.

Re: Ravi vs Sam Harris
I have no idea what the purpose of the change of the color text serves. I do find it irritating and difficult to read.

This may be a good thing though. I won't waste my time reading what you write I guess.

Re: O what a tangled web we weave
I merely pointed out that a lot of people would agree with me.

Can you show this or are you just going to continue to assert?

Re: O what a tangled web we weave
Go ahead and attempt to trot out one of those pansy atheist authors.

Nothing quite like going complete homophobic to show your right wing fundie credentials is there.
If you can cast disgusting insults, so can I. You dare to talk about civility, but you only care that people are civil to you, but you do not have to be civil to those that disagree with you.

ABE
I apologize to the forum in general. I will not apologize to Phat. There is no place here for homophobic, ignorant hateful slurs. He attacks atheists with a vile slur and he is surprised anyone takes offense.

He has no shame. He repeats calls for civility but does not feel he has to be civil to those that "disgust" him.

Again, I apologize to the forum and Percy for my outburst.

Have you no sense of decency?
yet resort to street thuggery when your emotions get you.

Street thuggery? You use a homophobic slur and expect no one to take offense? You should be ashamed of yourself, but like a classic fundie you have no shame and no decency.

Re: Have you no sense of decency?
Your willful ignorance just makes you look more and more ridiculous. Why would you use the word pansy if you did not intend it as a vile insult? Why was there need for the insult? For you to claim you were unaware that it was a homophobic slur is stunning.

You have lost all sense of decency in your pursuit of vilifying anyone that questions your beliefs. Your hate is in some ways worse and more insidious than Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist Church. At least he was honest about his hate.

The evidence shows Ravi does not own Sam Harris
Harris knows virtually nothing about the Bible that he has not gleaned from fellow atheists interested as he is in debunking it.

Seemingly, he knows more than Ravi. Ravi only knows more when you ignore his misrepresentations and ****.
