You're essentially asking for a free pulpit from which to preach without any dissenting opinions sharing the limelight. If you wanted to be owed an opportunity to persuade observers to your way of thinking unmolested by countering arguments, you should have realized an atheist forum wasn't the right place to do it.

I love it when an atheist responds this way...it's like when playing chess and my opponent tosses the board in the air and storms out of the room.

The forum is more theist than atheist lately. It's getting old.

It ebbs and flows.

I'm not worried. Eventually they'll break a rule or reveal their sockiness and then they'll be banned.

That sounds like something ol' Gordo might do.

Dissent all you want, make your counter points and rebut everything I say but you don't have to also tell me my argument didn't persuade you...I know that already. The point of a debate is to persuade the unpersuaded not the folks I'm debating.

I love when theists bitch because counter arguments completely destroy their arguments. Does your opponent in chess play or is it like you not allowing counter arguments and only you get to play?

Most of them end up hoisting themselves on their own petard.

This seems like a moot point since unfogged didn't appear to ask for you to persuade him specifically anywhere in his post.

I don't get this sentiment...don't you want debate? I ran a forum for a while and as an administrator I wanted lively debate. The name of the forum is Real life debates with theists but you would prefer theists didn't post?
