Just a heads-up. Anyone actually interested in what I have to say here, regardless of how few, should take the time to read pages 4 & 5 of this thread: http://www.rationalskepticism.org/gener ... 47081.html

Good night.

I don't think that jamest is God, either.

It's about time that you and the other captives here finally made an effort to understand what has been said through james' gob, because he has not, nor ever has, stated that 'he' is your God. Indeed, repeatedly, jamest has evidently placed everyone here upon the same pedestal as himself within the context of absoluteness.

Then it is you who needs to make the effort to understand, because I never said that you said that you are "our God". I said you think you're god, and I understand that you think everyone else is god too. It's not a complex, or even particularly original concept. Especially since you just state it over and over again instead of doing any sort of work to support it. "Imagine you're a guy on Mars!" isn't support for your claim, believe it or not, it's an analogy to get people to understand the concept, which I'm pretty sure everyone already understands.


It's your TRUTH MILLS which are responsible for treating james as one of those regular/daft religious twats we see throughout history.

No, it is you acting like a regular religious person that is responsible for the treatment you receive. Just because your beliefs are especially daft and wooly doesn't make them substantially different from any other religious belief, especially since you have the exact same quantity of evidence as any of them: didilly squat.

Especially since you just state it over and over again instead of doing any sort of work to support it.

Firstly, jamest has never indicated that he had a unique conclusion to the philosophy promoted through him, though he rightfully claims that through him MY existence can be undoubtedly established via reason alone, for the first time in history (truth mills need fixing first of course). Indeed, using arguments/concepts which are often completely original. Further, he presents rational arguments pertaining to My will and purpose, not emotional hunches or intuitions derived from smoking pot. In other words, there are meaningful reasons for proving My existence other than for the mere sake of proving my existence. That is, there's a purpose to these works which transcends hallelujah.

Secondly, since you only have to play with the search engine to see the enormous amount of work done through jamest here (and elsewhere) for almost two decades, covering a significant diversity of philosophical issues, your comments seem highly disingenuous. If you're expecting a single post of several hundred words to encapsulate all of that, then you're crazy. jamest would literally have to write a book to justify the works produced by him, but as this is a forum of debate then the limitations presented before us are obvious. If you have a specific question I will address it, but otherwise have a fucking word with yourself. :nono:

There was no diversion there as what I had to say was entirely relevant to the "explanation for this shit". I mean, the 'shit' in question is caused by ignorance, so what I had to say over there addressed some portion of this ignorance. :nono:

My wife knows, although she has her own 'spiritual' problems having been brought up by retarded religious parents. I haven't told my kids because it is my intention that every individual should be free to decide for themselves once they become an adult.

I'm not here to save specific individuals, including members of my own physical family. I'm here to present a philosophy which will someday work for the whole. it doesn't really matter whether that philosophy is noted today, next week, year, century, etc., so long as it ultimately works.

Some days visiting Ratskep feels like unpaid volunteer work at the asylum.

It feels like every thread I open is filled with this insane, inane ranting about how some unspecified argument has already been made (and when you check it hasn't) how great and right the promoter of that (absent) argument is and how all counterpoints have been refuted.

Who is "I" here? Is it jamest or someone else with access to that account?

The attempt at diversion is that you (jamest) went to an unrelated topic to discuss the subject matter of this topic, there. Rather than spread your (jamest's) shit all over the forum, post the "entirely relevant" to this topic parts you (jamest) posted in the wrong topic, here.

I'll start you off -

That's because the insane, inane ranting is easier than making an argument.

What's more mysterious is how the reliance on claiming to have made an argument is enough to validate anything, including the premise of the argument, which is why I think the stated premise is secondary at best, but surely not least.

What do you want to know? Forgive me for not writing a 100K-word retort to any of the shit here, but that's not going to happen here. These are the limitations of forum life, I'm afraid. I mean, if you go and ask someone how to build a house, the details might probably entail more pages than The Bible, all things considered, yet for some insane reason you're all expecting me to address the OP of this thread within one relatively-short post.

You dicks need to grow the fuck up, which is not an invite to start wanking-off again.

Nobody is expecting much of you, to be honest.

Personally I wasn't even expecting you to maintain that weird affectation of third person speech. So it is no great disappointment to me that you haven't managed it - despite even third rate fiction writers accomplishing this on a daily basis.

I think what you promised, in somewhat bathetic fashion, was "God's explanation for this shit", whether in more words than it would take to explain how to build a house (although spoiler - that isn't longer than the bible) or not. Some participants would have settled for a simple definition of what "this shit" that is going to be explained is, or perhaps, even more modestly what you even think an "explanation" is to begin with.

Alas, we are all to be disappointed. If unsurprised. Drunken-seeming internet ramblings based on half-baked preconceptions and weird fiat declarations fail to deliver again.

PS: Colossally amused that you've managed to combine a weird little make believe "I'm talking for god/everyone" cosplay/playdate session with a prescription that you don't like childish behaviour.

I've just issued an ultimatum in another thread*. Don't put yourself forward. I'm looking for sincere debate.
