Wow, I totally didn't catch that, the first time through.

I read his "I am not sinning with my mother" the way he meant it, as in "I am not having the dirty dirty filthy evil my-chuch-says-it's-bad sin of sex with anyone, especially not my mother"

... but that totally reads as "It is not a sin when I do it with my mother."

How did I miss that? Laugh out load

How beautifully ironic-- in his attempt to play the part of purity, he accidentally said something much more foul than what he was trying to avoid.

Not really, though. In post #157, you called him a dense motherfucker. He was just taking that more literally than you meant it, and denying the charge. I got a chuckle out of it, but he's not making any sordid confessions.

Yeah, that's how I read it the first time, not seeing it had another potential meaning.

And, of course, arguing over whether one is actually having sex with one's mother when someone calls you a "dense motherfucker" makes you one seriously dense motherfucker!

Is "motherfucker" limited to one's own mater? Surely it can be the mother of another?

(21-10-2016 01:59 PM)TheInquisition Wrote:  Once upon a time, there was a teacher in a classroom with high school students. One day the teacher makes an offhand comment about Santa Claus not being real, most of the students laugh, but there is one student that doesn't laugh.

After class is over, the student approaches the teacher and says that he knows that Santa is real, because he receives presents from him.

The teacher finds this rather discomforting because this student is 18 years old, a student of this age should know better. So the teacher takes it upon himself to show the naive student how ridiculous it is for a man in a sleigh to fit a billion presents going to children on a sleigh. He shows how ridiculous it is to think that these presents could be delivered in a single night. The speed that Santa would move would create sonic booms of such severity he would literally flatten the houses of every kid that got a present.

After the teacher gets through showing just how ridiculous the idea of Santa is, the student says to the teacher- "You musn't question Santa or you will be on his naughty list!"

The teacher calls the school psychiatrist.....

Yup.

This is right up there with the two middle school girls who attempted to murder their friend to appease their all-powerful, invisible overseer...Slender Man. Pre-trial, they were sent for psychiatric evaluation because of their errant beliefs.

The irony here is breathtaking...

Disappointing theists since 1968

The humanity is equipped by legs and mind, not to go into dangerous places. The dangerous places is not problem of humanity. Thus, the fine-tuning still remains to defeat the atheism.

Borg, your post doesn't make any sense. I note a tendency you have to make some peripheral statement as if you had addressed the substance of the poster, like:

Atheist: Moses committed murder in the bible.
Borg: He carried a staff.
Atheist: ??????????????

Ah, the inevitable "mysterious ways" argument, the last resort of the debater faced with losing.

Do you think it is a reasonable and true assumption that say, a grandchild should not be held accountable for the evil deeds of the grandfather? If you agree, then you cannot condone god's actions, and you must conclude either he does not exist, or he is not Omni-belevolent.

Or will you duck this conclusion like you do all the ones you are uncomfortable with?

Sorry if I seem a bit testy, but I don't have high hopes I will receive a rational answer. Please renew my faith in humanity.
