What Do You Like About TTA Forum?
So the title says it all really. What do like about this forum? What is it that keeps you coming back for more?

I'll begin as I've started the thread;

I find intellectual conversations hard to come by at times. I have a few friends who are interested in religion/politics/science but most of them don't know what the difference between right and left wing and have never heard the word atheist. I still enjoy their company and everything, don't get me wrong, but sometimes I want a more intellectual conversation.

Also, being the only atheist in a family of Christians, two out of three of whom are creationists and claim that the idea of evolution 'doesn't make sense' and that creation is the only 'logical' explanation, it helps to prevent my ego from getting too big Big Grin. On here I feel like one of the less intelligent people whereas in life I generally feel like one of the more intelligent (arrogant I know, at least I can be honest about my flaws though).

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....

Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

RE: What Do You Like About TTA Forum?
I have been on different forums over the past 10 years.

What I like about this one most is that it is (mostly) polite and NO POLITICAL CORRECTNESS! -- very few people get offended on behalf of others they have never met, never known -- we are able to use language to describe, as vividly as we can, how we feel about different issues.

It is so stifling when you have to watch every word you use, like walking on a mine-field, bracing for a reprimand from some asshole who will ignore the content and the meaning and gets hung up on words.

Lots of other things I like about this forum but this is on top of my list.

May it stay like this forever! Big Grin

Same as the majority of above. Though I do have friends who enjoy intellectual conversation unfortunately none who enjoy discussing religion.
I also find the need sometimes to remind myself that just because I am in the minority on whether I believe in god, this does not make me insane. Might actually help prove my sanity.
Plus the majority of forum members are intelligent interesting people whos posts I enjoy reading even when I don't agree with them.

RE: What Do You Like About TTA Forum?
I keep coming back because on other websites, my thoughts are really never considered & sometimes not even noticed.
On here, I feel like people actually notice me.
I know that it may sound dumb, but it means a lot to me, actually.

Yeah I agree with your points now I think of it Lucradis and Zatamon.

Calmyourtitsbro, it doesn't sound stupid at all to like having your points listened to, I would get irritated if people didn't listen to me.

Everybody who posted plus bemore, hamata k, girly....

IT's Thinking! It's Atheist! It's... an act of 'random' evolution. Tongue

(TJ's forum is "fulla kids." That ain't a bad thing, it's a relevance thing - the young have their own ideas of gravitational relevance. Cool )

RE: What Do You Like About TTA Forum?
I like the fact that debates can get heated between members but they don't seem to carry over into future debates. I have adamantly disagreed with several members on a few topics and exchanged rather lengthy replies but I have also found myself in close agreement with the same individuals on other topics that I have supported them on or they have supported me on. It is important to agree and it is important to disagree, as long as you do so in a civil manner.

Being nice is something stupid people do to hedge their bets

This, ten times over.

Some of my favorite posters here are ones I have also had some of the most heated debates with. I love that I can disagree with people here, and still walk away with plenty of respect for them. Nothing drives me quite as crazy as when I argue with a person and they seem to think that I no longer like or respect them. That happens very rarely with you guys and gals.

So many cats, so few good recipes.
