The theist wagering thread .. place your bets
So this will be like an office pool, and you can estimate the date a new theist here will start preaching, spouting Bible quotes, saying they have a revelation about why THEY alone have been revealed the truth, and such and such, and such .... and such. If you don't want to actually place a specific date bet, you can buy an option on a week, or a month. "Put" options will be after your date, "call" options will be before your date. If you are correct as to date, the Fullerene will give a donation in your name to TTA, and you can have your name turned red, (if you like).

Can I be part of this game?
If your talking about me....I have a hint for you. Go read my post in the introductions thread. I won't be trying to convert you to a particular religion so you won't see me defending any religion unless you make some gross misrepresentation about it....even then I'd have to be in the mood for a fight.
I'm interested in talking about God and his nature. I'm not interested in talking about religion.

If a god has a "nature" then it doesn't have another nature. That makes her not "infinite". Oops. BTW the gods are female, and eunuchs, and hermaprodites, not males.
(Just more anthropomorphic projection.)

I'll address this criticism in another thread someday.

Well just don't tell me when. That would be insider trading.

I'm going with April 15th.

I'm going with that date if we allow for theists to come back too? I suspect Egor will be back shortly after Easter.
