I can respect your view provided you remember I didn't make this bed all by myself.

Religious folks, and you may be one of them, love to spout "love the sinner, hate the sin" nonsense and then proceed to vilify and attack atheists whom many theists consider the worst sinners alive. You and your ilk criticize, condemn and discriminate against non believers and then wonder why we fight back.

My reply is...."barely tolerate the religious nut, hate the religion." Simply put. We hate your unproven religious claims and we're going to tell you why.

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.

I think they more or less allow it rather than invite it.

On the forum principles page it says controversial opinions "are welcomed". You are right though, such opinions are merely tolerated at best. That is why I said that portion of the principles page amounted to bullshit. The rep system here re-enforces that hypocrisy.

We weren't 10 posts into the thread when certain clowns started to neg rep me for daring to use evolution to suggest the existence of God. Those neg reps you didn't see certainly had an influence to my responses to said clowns in that thread.

At least for me, the default assumption when I'm talking to a Christian about evolution is that they're inadequately educated and are simply not equipped to comprehend someone like Dawkins in the first place. Maybe that doesn't describe you at all, but that is my knee-jerk reaction.

Dawkins claimed Evolution was blind, I gave examples of evolution that suggest that it isn't....that there is a reason it homes in on particular forms over and over again. Maybe I should have been a little more thorough in the OP, but I try to avoid making walls of text.

Dismissing my argument because I haven't produced my credentials is an error. My credentials have nothing to do with the argument I made. The argument is persuasive or it isn't. If one is persuaded by credentials then one is lazy.

Do you agree that you, KC, and other positive rep theists don't make threads that challenge peoples world view here?

RE: I must leave
Christ Blowjob. There isn't a manual that states that everyone must use the rep system the way you want them to. There are no rules. It just so happens that the way people use it seems to result in arseholes such as yourself having negative rep and the rest positive. I personally think it's amusing that dickheads have to troll around the forum with a great big "I am a dickhead" sign attached to them. If you don't like it, you have the option to be less of a dickhead.

We'll love you just the way you are

I'll reply in full later (when I have a proper keyboard) but I just wanted to say really quicky that I don't feel the need to challenge the athiest's world view at all. From time to time, we do amicably disagree on my world view, but we all kiss and make up in the end. Probably because we respect each other as people and we can see past the differences in opinion.

RE: I must leave
Heywood, I think you are forgetting that a very large number of atheists on here including myself were once theists, just something to bear in mind. Smile
