RE: Welcome Mark Dreher
Wait, I thought god was talking to Egor to help him with his new religion. Now if they both wrote the same thing then I'd be impressed but I doubt its the same.

A Dire Straits lyric (Industrial Disease) comes to mind: "Two men say they're Jesus, one of them must be wrong".

I'm done here.

This is not fun, this is not debate, this is just sad.



Why, is it sad?

Finding out that God is real is something to rejoice.

Right?

Why are you not rejoicing?

You're going to Heaven, my dear.

And earlier this morning, you were not.

We will reverse this trend, for you.

Going to Heaven

Is a reason to celebrate

I assure you.

Quit your "stinkin thinkin".

Look at it, from a different light.

You do not believe, you NOW have a chance to go to Heaven.

But believe me, my dear, you do.

But yesterday?

You didn't.

Open your eyes.

Open you mind.

You just avoided stepping on a landmine.

You are welcome.

Someone who. Writes like

This clearly has, issues.

Am I the only one who thinks it really creepy that he addresses people "my dear"? Looking at his photo does not make it any better...

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you
do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will
understand why I dismiss yours.

RE: Welcome Mark Dreher
Well, well, well, what have we here?

Some fleeting light entertainment?
An opportunity for KC to step back and take it easy while another poor soul ( Smile ) takes the hits?
Competition for our own House prophet?

Or a potentially long-term forum member who can give real insight into an ancient way of thinking whose continued and persistent existence bewilders and baffles the average non-believer.

Did I just hear the door close as theword and pleasejesus make their exits because they won't get the attention they so deliriously crave?

I predict (am I allowed to say prophesy, HoC?):
Short visit
Ribald retorts
Up-side-down dogs
Being quote-mined for his web-pages
Whatevers.

This, from the intro thread speaks volumes...
A slightly huffy post (at least that's how I read it even though the smiley tempered it a little) containing, I thought, a few clues / hints regarding behavioural expectations and certainly no insults, received a very defensive response.

If you're interested in behaving like a human being I'm sure you'll be welcome here Smile

I'd suggest launching into apologetics in a separate thread where it will get its due attention rather than dropping it into the generic introductions thread.

Oh my goodness.

Four insults, in two paragraphs. Huh
...

[emphasis and Huh added]

Conclusion: Here we go-OOOO-oooo!

RE: Welcome Mark Dreher
He's either the world's most boring mental patient or a poe... and yes indeed the 'my dear' stuff and the avatar are both ridiculous. Hence my suspicion rests more on poe... especially since he's got time enough to write his own bible... and host it online. I mean seriously... wtf ? Like there isn't enough drivel around already...

Hey, I don't use smileys.

Are you saying I used a smiley?

Never, in all my born days, have I used a smiley.

That is for other people.

Not me.

I am a scribe my dear.

My words

Are important.

And I never used a smiley.

Let us be clear.

That actually bothers me.

That accusation.

May my son die

If I used a smiley.

You do not know, what kind of animal you are dealing with.

I assure you of that.

Shocking
Well, sir! That did sound like a threat!

Consider
If your interpretation of scripture is as well observed as your interpretation of my post, I think I know where you've been going wrong.

I suggest you re-read. No use of smileys was intended, implied or stated.

I...I...I've seen the light!

There is no denying Shekinah's wondrous revelation!

I changed my signature, I hope you don't mind, oh great prophet Lord Enoch.

What do I do now?

Shall I systematically hunt down these unbelieving swine!?

Random, use of commas is, odd. Consider

I'm sticking with mental health issues. Not a Poe.

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