RE: Converting others on Christian forums to Gnostic Atheism
Don't forget that sometimes they will ban you from their forums, if they are ignorant and don't want to hear it.
Just like how the creators of "A matter of faith" had every video criticizing them DMCA'ed for no reason. (However "The Fantastic Skeptic" got his video back.)

At first I was like, WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?! NO DON'T GO THERE, SOME WILL FOLLOW YOU BACK!

My fears are allayed now.

3. Banned, often for miscellaneous 'offences' which aren't actually rules.

They're the underpants gnomes of online forums.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

Picking the low hanging fruits, eh? What about them Muslims??

I've been thinking about this and I think it will be OK.

You see first there was Judaism and then along came Christianity followed later by Islam. The Jews think that Christ was a false prophet. The Christians think that Mohammed was a false prophet and ... OK maybe this isn't what I was wanting to say.

Starting again.

Muslims think Jesus was a prophet and that Islam replaces Christianity. Christians think that Christianity replaces Judaism. Muslims were the most scientifically advanced people in the medieval ages. Christians were responsible for (accidentally) bringing about the enlightenment by encouraging people to read books so they could better understand the Bible. So all I have to do is explain that Gnostic Atheism is their fault.

I am sure they'll accept that.

Which Christian forum are you planning on hitting? I was just over at Amazon's Christian forum and there's a bunch of idiots, errrr, people over there. I don't know if they ban outsiders much but I could be wrong. I always like to bring up when the New Testament was written and how it wasn't written by eyewitnesses and they go nuts with that. The subject of God bashing babies is always good plus all the genocide. I'm reading through a great book called Drunk With Blood: Gods Killings In the Bible by Steve Wells. Thumbsup It's a really fun romp through all the genocide, blood and guts, mayhem and body hacking god approves of.

I'm sending encouragement and support your way, although that's kinda wooish isn't it.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Are you sure now that you don't want't to conduct a psychological research program to examine peoples responses to your obviously well informed tounge-in-cheek arguments instead of actually trying to win them over to your camp of uncanny heathens? Consider

I mean, what if they turned out to be resilient, stubborn, dishonest and just plain stoopid instead of embracing your fantabulous non-eschatological parade of good news? That'd be a bummer. Unsure

Oh I'm not sure about that. If I was to do a psychological research program I'd have to start with a testable and falsifiable hypothesis with an objective and reproducible means to gather data without any a-priori assumptions or confirmation bias on my part. I'd then want to collate the data using statistical analysis and present some kind of result or conclusion along with appropriate caveats.

If I didn't do all that then it would just seem like a pathetic excuse for being a crap troll.

Well that sounds like an awful lot of work to be bothered with. How about if you just kept affirming that realising the truth is an innate capacity of every human being, and that it's just their own goddamn fault that they willfully deny the truth?

No caveats on that one.
