I don't like your fucking attitude, as you don't like mine. The difference between us is that I'll answer your posts where I see rational merit, whereas you only ever address mine with the intent of trying to make me look like a daft cunt.


No, that's not the difference.

The difference is that you asked what you could address, and when I answered in a perfectly civil tone you got the hump and started swearing. The reason I gave that more extensive explanation was that when SAM gave the rather more terse response that you could address the OP you got sarky with him as though you didn't understand what he meant.

Now, I'm not telling you what to do, I'm answering your question. That is what you could do to address some of the earlier things in a reasonable and substantive way. But nonetheless you're absolutely correct that you aren't obliged to be reasonable or substantive, or indeed reply at all. But if you do reply, then it's also equally correct that anyone can comment on the unreasonableness and lack of substantiation.

I have no clear idea why you're waffling on about intimidation though, a case of methinks the lady doth protest too much, perhaps? Who knows. For the record, no, I'm not trying to intimidate you or make you look like a cunt. I'm trying to elicit a substantive post that addresses some of the naked claims made by you in the thread (or any other thread) and fleshes them out with some reason. Maybe that would even make for a good discussion, if you can apply this intelligence you keep assuring us you have.

I've done two decades of this. I can tell the nice atheists from the nasty ones, so stfu ACTING the nasty atheist. It doesn't wash.

I ended up on good terms with hackenslash, so you've got no hope of alienating me. The fact is that I hate nobody here. Even the doughnuts who are currently thrusting their knives towards me don't realise this. But I'd instantly hug you,Thommo, Fallible, Cito, etc. etc. in the moment I met you all.

I want you to believe that, if nothing else.

It doesn't matter who you would or would not hypothetically hug. Nobody cares.

You asked what you could do to "address" the topic. This clearly isn't it.

I don't know if you're aware of this, but bragging about how long you've been doing something when you're still doing it so poorly doesn't really help you.

I can tell the nice atheists from the nasty ones, so stfu ACTING the nasty atheist. It doesn't wash.

I know it's easier for you to claim that someone else is "acting like" whatever instead of actually addressing what they've said.

I'm not really sure what that has to do with anything.

The fact is that I hate nobody here. Even the doughnuts who are currently thrusting their knives towards me don't realise this. But I'd instantly hug you,Thommo, Fallible, Cito, etc. etc. in the moment I met you all.

I don't know why you think that nobody knows this, since you say it repeatedly. It just isn't even vaguely relevant to anything anyone's said. I know you aren't going to change course after 20 years, but maybe consider the possibility that when someone points out a problem with your "argument", it isn't a personal attack.

After that I would suggest taking ibuprofen for any soreness on your part. After that, I'd tell you to wake the fuck up and smell the infinite roses. The end.


I didn't see anyone being upset.

Oh god,why do you keep banging on about how much you like people and how nice you'd be if you met them? I don't care. I get enough positive strokes. Just say something substantive about your OP.

Squire, I don't give a rats if your posts here get a thousand thumbs-ups. That was the point of my last 3 posts. That was also the point of my last two decades involvement with antagonistic people such as you.

You couldn't hack two weeks of intense antagonism towards your own personal views. Gain some perspective, and then stfu. For once.


Did you know that if you replace antagonistic with agnostic, and antagonism with agnosticism, you get a slightly different sentence? :dopey:

You physicalists are so cold and uncaring. How can you expect world peace if all you can do is express emotions in terms of biochemistry and a piece of graph paper with curves drawn on it?

How typical of you to express the release and uptake of serotonin, dopamine, and oxytocin over time.

I like how asking for what one promises in the OP = antagonism, with the added irony of being antagonistic about it.

I start a serious thread and [say] 85% of the responses are piss-takes and/or 'politicial' (tribal). And you wonder why it becomes increasingly difficult for me to motivate myself to give 'my' precious time to this place. Really?
