Getting tired of Trumpets and Flat Earthers
So here recently I've had a string of debates on Facebook with trump supporters and flat earthers and I decided to take a break from the theist insanity and have some intelligent conversations. I'm new so the thing to do is introduce myself. Jobs done. Smile

I watch a fair amount TV, but don't read like I use to. I work in IT as a consulting doing Exchange/O365 and Networking. I enjoy science and some of my favorite topics are batteries and alternate energy sources, but I find stuff like wasp venom and nano delivery systems that curing cancer fascinating as well. This include hydro and geothermal which don't seem to get the love they deserves IMO. I also enjoy gaming but I'm holding off on that right now. Still playing a card game called War of Omens, but work on my retirement plan of an 8 unit apartment complex took up all my free time for the last month or so and I stopped playing Black Desert Online. (that game is a huge time sink...) I've played World of Tanks/Warships. Love the Total War series. Played some league of legends but quit when I started playing BDO. (might be going back ARAM and no ranked in the near future) On a humorous note I named my two havanese Teemo and Galio. Was going to debate.org but it's just so buggy now, so I started going to debate island but they've set flat earthers as moderators for the earth science and they just delete my posts when I disagree with them. As I've finally recovered from the housing bubble bursting in 2006 I decided to hire some developers to create ForDebating for me, but the delays are worse than the contractor problems I'm having with my apartment complex. I've almost come to the conclusion no one does what they say they are going to do/their job anymore. It's frustrating, so I figured I'd try some atheist forums and see if that leads to a better quality of discussion.

So hit me up if any of that sounds interesting, and I look forward to getting to know ya. Big Grin

Welcome.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

RE: Getting tired of Trumpets and Flat Earthers
I would say you probably just need to start ignoring people like that on FB; it's a pointless venture. I used to argue with people like that on other boards but found in the end it really didn't matter. They would end up having their own circle jerk where when one was "attacked" they'd all come to their rescue and it ended up being nothing but the standard "BUT BUT BUT OBAMA!!!" or "snowflake libtards!" And when Trump does something that should actually piss them off, they merely then fall back on "Both parties suck!" (which is funny, I see so many claiming that yet they have no problem being specific about the DNC but never specifically call out the RNC for anything....hmmmmmm).

And flat-earthers.....seriously, you're wasting your time.

As someone who played Trumpet in school, I can say they are very annoying.
