I know. I saw it.

Everyone so inclined should go beat him up there; Intro threads seem a bad place for it.

Hasn't anyone ever caught a fish? You bait the hook, lure the fish in, entice the fish, one quick little jerk to set the hook, then reel him in, slow, don't want to snag or break the line and let him get away, and then, only after he's in the boat (or on land), only then do you club him to death.
That's only if you want to keep the fish, though.

Welcome to the forums, Lion - we're not all a bunch of drooling theist-hungry bible-bashers waiting to pounce on you the second you join the forums.
He made his intro topic after making a splash in a previous topic.

This was my very first post here at The Thinking Atheist forum.

I made that post in a thread which I thought would welcome more new theists.

My second post was this intro thread. So it's not like I waited days and days. And I thought my intro thread post was pretty friendly. Undecided

BUt it's OK. I realise not everyone cant compartmentalize/quarantine threads as clearly as the topics suggest. (Hence my point about preemtive ad homs.)

Apologies to earmuffs for saying "Hello from Lion IRC". That gets a lot of atheists annoyed for some reason.

Yeah... well, you can see that people are neutral and welcoming to you, but soon their demeanor changed after reading the other topic.

RE: Hi all - from Lion IRC
I don't know what happened in the other threads and for now I don't care. This isn't aimed at anyone in particular. Can we please keep bickering out of the intros. Imagine joining a forum and seeing this.

Take it to the other threads.

Your intro thread was friendly. So was my response, included within some constructive criticism. If this is a way to get people to take your side in a guilt trip, well be my guest. Just remember, you accused me of saying you have the IQ of a 5 year old, calling you a pretentious ass and troll. I said it seemed like you didn't know what a debate consists of. I stuck by KC when it came to his analysis of you because it's accurate, and has nothing to do with the definition of an ad hominem because that is only applicable during a debate, which further proves what I had said earlier within my constructive criticism. Your clusterfucking the thread and ignoring an invite to the boxing ring thread A2 made for you got you this response. You may not have asked for it, but you definitely got it.

Me - Biblical theist, .au, happily married since 1985, love friendly AvT chat, been visiting online fora for several years.
Looking forward to getting to know new people here.

Howdy Lion, 1985 is when I got married as well. She got to choose the Church, I got to choose the date. The Ides of March felt fitting. Evil_monster

What's a Biblical theist? A non-denominational Christian?

Breathing - it's more art than science.

RE: Hi all - from Lion IRC
Ides of March. lol

I use the term biblical theist because it's more generic and describes the Big Tent pretty well.
I'm catholic in the universal sense of the word, not specifically the Roman type.

Not sure if I'm post-denominational. Yes, I suppose I am.
I wouldnt be comfortable in any Church where Jesus wasnt Lord and Saviour
