Just observations. Not a complaint. I'm used to the schtick here. Although, it would be nice to see a little kindness. But, that would be imitating Christ? Not allowed.

Where have you been?  Prison?

Maybe ronedee is secretly Kent Hovind, and now that he's in jail he's got time to work the interwarbz.

I'm not even gonna ask why Brian is familiar with the kind of love you have for a sex doll.

If your mind makes you think you have to explain that you don't love your cat like you love your sex doll, you need an entire team of psychiatrists.

You got me. I fuck my cat, and after that, I barbecue him, and eat him.

Please. I know you don't like me, but you are out of your mind. Please take the time go look up in a dictionary, or GOOGLE for that mater, the word "SARCASIM".

Don't barbecue and eat him. That way you can fuck him again.

Damn it, I keep forgetting. No wonder the cat rescue agencies keep turning me away.

Sarcasim...is that a new word?

And calm down now. You are out of control, even for you.

Nope, apples and apples. You come to an atheist message board and (metaphorically) shit on our floor and expect kindness in return.

When you find the exit and go through it, will you please take 37 with you?

atheistic (w/no mention of God allowed) forums.

My [serious] questions, if you are so inclined to answer them:

1. Do you require any inner peace to function in life?

2. Where do you find your peace, if you require it?

3. Do you feel that it is a virtue, or just a state of nature(i.e. calm weather, no war, no one bothering you...like me! lol)


I'll make my points after I've had some feedback. This has been a longtime curiosity as to
our divide. Not only here but with; family, friends & acquaintances who are atheists.

Thanks for your input! R
1. Yes, I rely heavily on a sense of inner peace. My (rare) angry spots make me dysfunctional for as long as I'm angry.

2. My faith in God brings me peace. I enjoy reading and that brings me peace.

3. Definitely just a state of nature. I didn't do anything "virtuous" to deserve my peace.

But (about "no God allowed" thing) I assumed ronedee meant "secular" forums where religion is considered a divisive topic... so the rules are "no mention of religion." After all, it seems rather impossible to talk about atheism without mentioning God or gods. Perhaps ronedee can clear that up?

I seriously doubt any forum exists that has a rule about uppercase or lowercase "gods." I use both upper and lowercase forms of the word (as they relate to different god-concepts). Nobody has ever even mentioned it to me here (or anywhere else)... let alone enforced some kind of rule concerning capitalization. That sounds like some bullshit story you concocted because you need to feel "persecuted" when the fact is, atheists simply disagree with you. But if what you describe is the case in some other atheist forums, those people are idiots.

In college, my logic professor (staunch atheist, faculty leader in the Student Secular Society) once told me to capitalize God when addressing Christians and other monotheists. "Show them that you're charitable, he said. Show them that you're logical argument is what deserves attention and you'll concede whatever meaningless capitalization conventions we've adopted because of their century's-long rule over society."

That stuck with me. This guy had written two books advocating the atheist's position. He debated William Lane Craig... twice. He even showed us the video one day in class. It was awesome. So here you have a guy... staunch atheist, as I mentioned, going out of his way to tell me (an eager atheistic student) to observe theists' silly capitalization conventions. That flies directly in the face of your thesis... because, believe it or not, most of us are way more fair-minded than you assert.

Lemmie tell you about some of the crap I've seen go down on Christian forums. (No wait... let's not... because that's a waste of time because it says nothing about the truth or falsity of God's existence.)
