Internet Utopia

RE: Internet Utopia
Well, given that Heaven is a place where nothing ever happens, I suppose that’s probably doable in real life.

Yeah, Heaven utopia in which you enter by not having "wrong" thoughts.

Also, according to the Bible, there are armies in Heaven, so how can it be a utopia when it needs armies to protect it?
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

So far, everything I've seen from you indicates that you are (supposedly) a principled person, but with a very wishy washy attitude. I can't relate to this, as I am very confident in my world view and won't change it because of something an Internet stranger said.

What do you find "wishy washy" about my attitude?  

I'm not asking you to change your worldview; believe whatever you want.  However, I'm happy to point out its many ridiculous flaws.

Well not really "wishy washy", more like "weak". There is no boldness in your claims. And all good ideas have flaws. That's not to say those flaws can't be ironed out, to create something perfect.

What does that mean, "no boldness"?  Why can't you ever be specific about what you are saying?  Do you only know how to speak in vague generalities?  I think I'll try that with you and see how you like it.

All good ideas have flaws.  That's a flimsy claim.

@Ahriman Your utopia assertions are simply wishy washy.

Actually I'm far more comfortable just pointing out how you simply don't understand much of anything that is said here, so clearly all you can do is respond in vague, meaningless gibberish.

Often times overconfidence is a flashing indicator of extreme ignorance.  How's that for bold?
