I'm here mostly for the community. Debate and theological discussion is second.

That's fine. But when you are a theist and you join an atheist forum, you'd best expect a massive amount of flack for it. I don't waltz into a Christian forum under my atheist hat and expect a balanced argument.

I know.

Thanks.

No need to thank me.

Hug Heart It's gonna be okay.

But it's weird that you're asking the people who are abusing you whether it's shameful to feel abused by them. You should ask someone objective.

Jeremy starts being attacked instead of Jeremy's beliefs. I understand this because I know how hard it is to separate a person from beliefs.

I don't think we really *can* separate a person from their beliefs. What I believe is part of me...it colors my actions and affects how people judge those actions. Even without seeing actions, our beliefs change how people see us. You'd think less of me if I said the only place for a woman was in the kitchen, barefoot, suckling two babies and cooking my dinner, regardless of whether I make a woman do that. (Well, okay, some people would agree with that...but I'd totally judge them.)

I'm not necessarily sure I see what's wrong with that, other than the response often gets disproportionate.

If I had a choice between his delusion and suicide, I would take suicide.

Chas, don't tell KC you would kill yourself if you were him right after he tells us all he feels sad. That's mean. Tongue

No, if he were depressed and suicidal it would be mean. He was just whining.

It's not mean. It's terse and deadly.

Thoughts?

Will it affect your election? If not, why you give a shit?

There are many things I've read on this forum which make me sad. Atheists dicking with a nihilist who wraps himself in fancy Jesus ribbons and bows ain't one of them, brother. Wink Similarly, fuckers dicking with me have no chance of making me sad or angry or anything other than being entertained. Like you, I put no faith in myself so I am incapable of being offended or even taking offense.

Gotta go find that video bemore found about getting over yourself
...
found it
...
drop yourself and you can't be fucked with or disturbed or even affected by anyone else. Fuckers are left with just futile shadow boxing. Buck up little trooper. Wink




I am us and we is me. ... bitches.

RE: Am I being weak minded?
KC you put up with us day in and day out. A weak minded person could not do that. If the ridicule is constant, no matter what the forum, it gets old. The fact that you like harmony would make it trying, especially around here lately.

I for one, love having a theist that I can talk to without it going into the land of stupidity. You the man! Now that is all the praise I have in my little black atheist heart today, so buck up little camper Smile
