Moreso AM than Lion... also, AM seems to try and justify his beliefs in certain things no matter how much proof is set against him or how ludicrous his claim is.

This lack of unwavering stalwartness is what gets on peoples nerves and causes such a ruckus.

To add to that, both can come across pretentious and AM can be a pretty big dick at times... this just adds fuel to the fire.
Wow, the amount of hypocrisy in that post is impressive! Thumbsup



WOW, the amount of ____________________ that spews from you daily is impressive.

I'd say the facts that you're an admin, and you join in with atheists to ridicule other Christians, account for much more of your acceptance. Angel

Me being an admin has nothing to do with.

And, I ridicule people indiscriminately. Just so happens we get "Christians" here who take parts of the Bible and say they mean something that they don't. I challenge that.

You must have missed the thousands of posts where I've challenged and ridiculed atheists when they use an incorrect form of assault on Christians (the unicorn thing comes to mind) and/or they misinterpret scripture and try to take it out of context to battle Christians.

I also challenge ridiculous beliefs that don't belong in the 21st century such as geocentrism.

Face it, many atheists who've been persecuted by theists don't just come here to escape said persecution, they enjoy turning the tables. I know most of you don't like to think about yourselves/brethren that way, but that's how it is. Intellectual sites dry up, childish and contentious sites flourish.

Bullshit. This place was set up to be a sort of circle jerk, to use a term you are fond of. Nobody comes here too debate religion with theists. We debate religion here because you have come here to do so. The hypocrisy is your own. The day I come to your porch and light a flaming bag of poo is the day you can say that.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

No really.

I've gotten rep well before I was an admin or a mod.

I think I got the highest rep when I was still a Vet.

So yeah, you're factually wrong. But like I said, even when you're presented with facts, you are unwilling to renege your claim and will continue to justify your idiotic point. Thanks for providing the forum proof.

Clap Awesome! Mind if I use this as my signature?

I've probably used it, but not so frequently that you could reasonably claim I'm fond of it.

RE: Trolls and Forum Quality
AlphaMale waltzes over to his neighbor's house.
Neighbor happens to be Jewish.
AlphaMale begins telling Jewish neighbor how wrong he is to think as he does.
Jewish neighbor challenges Alpha's malarkey and right to be *right* in all things
AlphaMale continues standing on Jewish neighbor's porch crying persecution and HOW neighbor said what he said.......not WHAT he said....but how he said it.
This continues at nauseum regardless of how often neighbor says "back on topic please"...... no the COMPLAINT is HOW neighbor says.......whatever


Alpha scratches head so very confused why Jewish neighbor thinks him an asshole and arrogant prick.


NOW............



insert Atheist Forum for Jewish neighbor.








get it?

If you really believed what you just said, there would not be the painful, drawn out, agonized path to banning those who make this place a mess.

You said that trolls are obvious. Demonstrate it.

N.B. Sine qua non means absolutely necessary, not sole absolute.

As Johnny said... there is a process.

Every person, no matter who they are, deserves a chance to clean up their act; likewise, they deserve warnings.

This is the way I operate TTA. I believe it's the fairest route... and until I get ousted, overuled by Seth, or quit, it will continue to be the way I operate.

I believe fairness shouldn't be selective.

I have no problem with a process that keeps it fair. It's the glacial pace that I see as a problem.

You don't seem to recognize problem people at all quickly, or warn them promptly to get the process going.

It is unfair to the rest of us on the forum to allow assholes to continue disrupting things while you drag out the process.

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

It's fun watching him play the No True Scotsman card over and over. Clearly we only like you because we made you an admin before that you were just as unpopular as he is...
