ETA: I am not pro-gun (or anti-gun for that matter). I am sure I live around strange people but I have never felt a need for a gun.

Every single one.
Every 'Thinking' atheist who realised that Christianity made no sense has been where you are right now. They stopped fooling themselves. You look like carrying on doing it. But, in any case, you won't fool us.

We do indeed agree on much more than we disagree on. Only that Matadora and I know that that there is much we don't know, including the Unknown, but you think you do know because of revelation. Even that is not the problem - the problem is that you lecture us from this faith -based position and berate me at least when I see that you really have nothing but Faith.

But even that isn't the problem - it is that YOU won't live and let live - you have to keep forcing your beliefs onto us. In thread hi -jack after Thread hi-jack.

And save the denial. we all see and know that you do.

We all comment on posts from the point of view of our belief system so some consistency to our commentary is unavoidable. The repartee and banter are some of the more enjoyable (if provocative) of the "gargleblasting." Nevertheless, to suggest that constantly reflecting our views in our commentary is somehow forcing them upon you is just silly. There is no coercion possible in such a forum. What is the point of discussion if not to inject your views into the discourse?

While i may be guilty of this myself, the fact is that you are becoming a perfect bore and pest in constantly derailing thread after thread in peddling your own Theories which Few Christians will have much interest in and no scientist. You had a dedicated thread where you could expound your wisdom to all and sundry but I suppose it got closed gown, since here you are predating the forum again.

I must say that your almost unbelievable degree of denial is quite entertaining, but the punters must be as tired of seeing you post your assertions again and again and again as they are of seeing me (and others) debunk them. Which (equally astoundingly) you deny a day or so later, as though nobody had a better memory than you do.

How is it, Arq, that your consistent and repetitive views are NOT boring and derailing or predatory, especially as you savage the believers with impunity? Oh, I know, your views are TRUE, right?

What is most entertaining are your tenacious and unwarranted claims of debunking and sussing concepts and ideas you are completely ignorant about.

reasonable people have reasonable rules. 100,000,000 people on the east coast in a anti-religion liberal society. bolt action and six shooters only.

its easy when you have such a limited agenda. Fundy thinks get the luxury of follow a simple central dogma without having to actually think. Just keep ones nose in the arse of the one in front of them ... and away we gooooo. .

lmao ... only you and maddy know ....

whats good for the rest of us. whats good and proper for public consumption.

again ... your post ... your words.

and when your sect of atheism's statement of belief about religious/god is debunked as junk-ed ... run away and shun it. just like fundy theist do.
