It is accomplished by a standardized knowledge classification system - I've done the thinking for you.

When referring to people, I'm sure TW is included in that group, but considering
TW rejects most commonly used definitions, it's hard to tell.

In the words of Archer "He thinks he's people"

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

seems about accurate to me. Then you go further down the line and hit theists.
Nice order!!! That sounds like it will be scientifically beautiful.Facepalm

Are you talking about making a list in an order that makes sense???Smartass

I have six words on my list, and I have yet to put them in a secular order - how smart are you?
Or, are you just fucking around with me?Drinking Beverage

I am very confident that you accidentally set yourself up for a discussion that you cannot handle.Consider

It doesn't seem that you have a standardize order that you can refer to, but for some reason you think it is possible to order, or it is impossible??? And your indirect reference to order was a brilliant joke on me - so subtle, only those of us who dabble in ontology would understand it.

Humanism - ontological doctrine that posits that humans define reality
Theism - ontological doctrine that posits a supernatural entity creates and defines reality
Atheism - political doctrine opposed to theist doctrine in public policy

Mayo Clinic Staff Wrote:Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. Those with narcissistic personality disorder believe that they're superior to others and have little regard for other people's feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism.

Narcissistic personality disorder is one of several types of personality disorders. Personality disorders are conditions in which people have traits that cause them to feel and behave in socially distressing ways, limiting their ability to function in relationships and in other areas of their life, such as work or school.

Narcissistic personality disorder treatment is centered around psychotherapy.

Get help.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I think secularism covers more than church and state, and I think your exercise of a negative connotation in 'separation' is not a good description if their is no term contraction.

"Value" appears to be a good word for describing terms - do you have a list of modifiers that you might suggest for furthering a more complete list of the common terms associated with the atheists discussions about atheism and theism???

That's an idea, don't you think for approaching the better reasoning in the threads???

Theism - ontological doctrine that posits a supernatural entity creates and defines reality

I only act this way on the Internet - stupid.

Your boy, President Obama, acts that way at your expense.

I guess sucking your dick would be my substitute for thought, as you've done the thinking for me?

Dodgy

A person very dear to me was badly hurt through a misunderstanding and miscommunication. For this, I am sorry, and he knows it. That said, any blaming me for malicious intent is for the birds. I will not wear some scarlet letter, I will not be anybody's whipping girl, and I will not lurk in silence.

Your last two posts have not made much, if any sense.

By chance is English not your first language and you are using some sort of translation software?

I also missed your reply. Navigating the thread from my phone is annoyingly hard.

Much cheers to all.
