But thanks.

Fucking pedant Dodgy!

No I don't think you're being weak minded. I'm sure most people on here would begin to feel worn down if they faced ad hominems when defending their beliefs, hell, most would probably leave.

I keep wondering why I don't leave from all the mean things Hughsie says to me. Weeping

This was just an honest question.

You got an honest answer.

I know.

Thanks.

What? No. "Alright" is not a word.

When have I ever said one mean thing to you?

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

I know.

Dude, not whining.

Just asking a question and looking for input.

Don't know why it automatically qualifies as "whining" if I ask a question of this nature.

Because it sounds like whining?

I think being weak-minded is to allow others to formulate your ideas and opinions for you. In one sense, you are not weak-minded because you have "reasoned" and "rationed" through your beliefs through your own thinking. On the other hand it might be fair to say that any religious person is weak-minded because they are not following their own opinion on reality, they are following a religious one as generated by someone else. (Except for HoC)

Being weak-minded does not mean you can't overcome it. I would assert that kids are all weak-minded and should be lest they want to die because of the lack of experience necessary to survive (strong willed people can still be weak minded, as can kids).

Oh, and it isn't "all right" it is "alright"

Well, in their defense, they probably aren't meaning for the attack to be personal. But like we both said, it's hard to separate a person from beliefs.

And no... "alright" is non-standard and incorrect. "All right" is the correct usage.

Fair enough, I guess.
