RE: Questioning The Intangible Versus Questioning the Tangible
@Whiskey and Vosur,

I just started reading this thread last night, and I had a comment to make on the subject of how theists are treated here. Except for one or two assholes, I've been treated very well here. My religious views may not be shared and are often debated, but I haven't felt ridiculed for thinking differently. I feel I'm treated with respect, and I've made good friends here. I like it here.

There seems to be a formula to success, and whether they’re atheists or theists, those who follow the formula are well received. When you walk into any new social setting, be it in real life or online, you are new, and you'd do well to remember that. There are certain protocols to follow and when people don’t have the skills to make new friends, others pick up on it right away. In any circle of friends, there is hierarchy and a placement where each person fits. You start at the bottom and earn status, respect and trust over time. Be humble and receptive to people and ease yourself into the group. Also, know thy audience. If you’re new, do more listening than talking and get a feel for the room before you jump in head first. Do not try to establish yourself as an authority. If you really do know your shit, let that come out naturally and let the others decide for themselves whether or not you’re trustworthy. Be polite and treat others as equals. Assume the default position that potential friends do not need you to come and save them or fix them. Finally, allow those people to establish themselves with you so they know that you’re reacting to them and not to a stereotype.

Just my two cents.

Why exactly are you here? What's your goal?

Eh, pretty sure it's you.

First, I don't give a rats fucking ass what you want me to do.

Second, you assume that I haven't already done so. I am very familiar with some of the US governments "exploits". I seem to remember discussing some of them on the forums.

Thirdly, if you look at my sig line, you'll notice a quote from Noam Chomsky.
Are you familiar with the good Professor? Familiar with his reputation for criticism of the US government dating back to Vietnam? Have you heard or read his take on US Foreign policy, especially in regards to South America and Third World countries?

Wasting your time here?

You're whining about conspiracy theories, masturbating over illuminati chemtrails and sasquatch abductions and other bullshit and you don't even mention the real shit that actually happened?

Operation Paperclip?
Operation Ajax?
Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos?
Henry Kissinger?
Iraq?

Normally I would link and reference my comments, but you can do your own fucking work for a change.

Maybe you'll find something to justify your arrogance.

All anyone has to do is read our debate on Catholics and see just how much content and arguments you ignore to see how lazy a lie that is. You are swear I hope that just ignoring a person's points at every turn doesn't mean they don't exist?

Again I'm not bothered by how dishonest you are, but how lazy and transparent you go about it.

Whiskey, you are way to predictable. Just give it up.
Sorry, am I supposed to be impressed by your ability to predict that I will point out your dishonest and evasive bullshit when you type it? What gave it away genius? Was it my repeated declarations that I would keep doing exactly that when you lie that tipped you off? Drinking Beverage

Goddamn you are stupid son.

What the fuck does that even mean? Negotiations? I was interested in a debate, and kept repeatedly trying to get you to address arguments made, the fact you couldn't bring your balls or your brain to the debate is not my fault you silly cock.

Deesse23 made it abundantly clear, in my opinion, that it's less your beliefs (your stupid stupid beliefs) that are the issue and the fact you can't provide a single scrap of supporting evidence to justify that belief that's the issue. For me, since you keep bringing me up, I could care less about your political beliefs as I already consider you're fucking idiot before I found out you're a lolconspiracy loon so your views don't surprise me in the least. I dislike you because you're a dishonest cowardly piece of shit.

The only time you are wasting is everyone else's as your time doesn't have any value for it to be considered wasted. Sorry you can't find any gullible twats to spread your meme to. So sad.

RE: Questioning The Intangible Versus Questioning the Tangible
@Vosur: Still happy that CW is being unjustifiably treated badly? After reading his recent responses? Like I said right at the beginning, he's as much of a dickhead as anyone, *as* willing to insult people - just doesn't use swearwords while doing so. Add to that he's a conceited fuck who thinks he knows something special, you can understand why people get irritated right?

We'll love you just the way you are
