That said, sorry for growling at *you*. Not at *all* sorry for growling at him.

Dude, I thought you were being sarcastic because you said *was* (with asterisks) instead of just was.

Yea I'm just talking about the irregularities, I can point out several irregularities in Arabic too even though I'm a native speaker of it.

There are "irregularities" in every single language ever spoken on the planet.
If you want to point out "irregularities", you should start with Portuguese, where just the letter "x" has three different pronunciations, depending on the word, with no possible way to know which you should use beforehand (unless you've memorized the word). Better yet, pick one of the 5000+ languages on the planet and start with those.
What you shouldn't do is say what other people find intuitive, unless you're a mind-reader or time-traveler.

The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

From within my circle of acquaintances, for people my generation, it's about 2% at most, high numbers but insignificant percentage. Many of them had a rough time at some point in their lives.

Much easier to read. Thank you.

Sounds familiar Consider repeat a lie enough and it'll feel like the truth *cough* [insert religion here] *cough*

Hmmm... Okay. Drinking Beverage

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.

And here, ladies and gentlemen, we see the correct way to handle an arguement and correct self through self-criticism.
I don't usually find anti-atheist points, but if I do, I'm keeping this thread in mind.
Could you clarify what you mean? How was his post 'anti-athiest'?
Not trying to bash you or anything, I'm just genuinely curious.

Didn't mean that, just meant that we should criticize ourselves and not lock away our weaknesses or give them irreasonable excuses, i.e. the religious way.
For that anti-atheist thing, it's a point I had that we discussed: the (dis)correlation between atheism and suicide.

I just read a few pages and it was a very frustrating journey...Every single post hbl makes makes me want to kill myself.
Hitler: Atheist
9/11: Atheists
Dark Ages: Atheists
Crusades: Atheists
Both world wars: atheists

This kid if he's not a troll has been mindwashed by his pastor

It's a good thing then hbl was banned a long time ago.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
