RE: NonReligious
You just now realized that he's doing this? Hm. Haven't read many martinb59 threads have you?

Lol I haven't read too many of them. I am sure he will keep doing it though.

Martin can be quite frustrating sometimes, but I always try to remind myself that he is in a very different position here than me. That makes me a little more forgiving, since I would feel on the defensive, and likely let the occasional out of line comment slip if I were in his position. I remind myself that I am part of the vast majority when posting here, while Martin is a VERY vast minority. I may not agree with most of what he says, and yes, I too get annoyed sometimes, but lets show that we are as forgiving and kind (or perhaps even more so) than those who have a god to dictate their morals, by cutting Martin at least a little slack.

You have just begun reading the sentence you have just finished reading.

I'm not even sure if that really qualifies as a personal attack. I believe he was saying that atheists are "suckers", not just me but all. Not sure if that makes it much better.

I don't believe Jesus is the son of God until I see the long form birth certificate!

So sensitive! Have you seen the names people have called me? I believe Asshat was the last one.

RE: NonReligious
I'm sorry to take this so lightly, but I can't help laughing every time the word "asshat" is brought up. Thats my new pet name for my wife! (Just kidding. Shes got a good sense of humor, but she also has a blackbelt, and I ain't no dummy! LMAO)

Martin, I think you may have missed post #14. Omega was a big enough person to take a little critisism, and give his/her position a little more thought. May have been too late to take back a negative rating (do we really put that much stock in those?), but I think credit should be given for what Omega said in that post.

Just sayin'.
