Excuse me? I don't *JUST* hurl invectives and profanity. Strawman much?

It's 99% of what you do, especially when you address Mr. Walker. What's your objective? (1) To convince him of the error of his ways? (Sorry, not gonna happen, no matter what approach you take); (2) To violently drive him off the forum? (That doesn't seem to be happening either); (3) To convince fence-sitters that he's wrong and you are right? (Mature logic and calm reasoning will accomplish that much better than your tactics); (4) To make yourself feel like a tough guy?

You're probably doing a wonderful job of #4, and making a complete failure of the other three. #1 is Mission Impossible, #2 would be best accomplished, as with any troll, by completely ignoring him, and your approach is completely wrong for #3. If #4 is all you want, well then, keep on truckin'. Whatever floats your boat.

But I also think it's more productive when it's limited to just those times. Most ordinary conversations with theists - whether in person or on a message board - are not those times.

If a theist is simply refusing to acknowledge the evidence or use logic, it can be frustrating, but it accomplishes nothing productive to be rude and belligerent about it. Now if a theist starts defending pedophilia or rape even in an ordinary conversation, I see no problem with expressing hostility. The difference is there is no risk of onlookers being turned off by the hostility in that case. So there is no risk of losing fence-sitters who might otherwise listen to rationality. There is also no risk of losing the chance of the theist considering your viewpoint - because someone defending pedophilia and rape isn't going to listen to reason anyway.

So it's important to employ sensible discretion when using hostility. Hostility shouldn't be the default first approach just because someone stubbornly clings to fantasy.

I agree. You have captured my opinion and attitude more accurately than I was able to express myself.

Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness.

-Karl Marx
