Hello everyone. I’m a believer in Jesus Christ. 
Do you guys have thick skins here? Or do you prefer echo-chambers?
How long before I am banned for challenging you?

Thanks.

RE: New Theist
Excellent first post. Welcome to AF.

I love chatting with theists... even meeting them halfway for sake of discussion.

Here's hoping you aren't a [insert relevant laundry item].

You strike me as an open minded person. Nice to meet you.

Other side of never.  The boards don't ban people for disagreeing, but there's a pile of banned assholes on record.  Why?  Plan on saying something you think might get you banned?  

Welcome aboard, at any rate.

Hello - checked the rules - challenging isn't on the list. But you may want to look and see what is.

Yeah anything can happen in discussions. For example you may be exposed as leftists, or as spiritually dead, or confused or just like a religion. Can you handle all these or ….. BAN?

Rules are basically what the BOSS of the board feels like they are on any particular day. This is a known thing on the internet.

Please start a thread about the spiritual deadness of atheism, GA. Because we don't debate in the intro thread. Intro thread is for saying "hi." The topical thread you subsequently create is for me to put your arguments to shame Wink

Sounds good. Let me get acquainted with the layout of your board, do a few readings or being observant for a few days so I can understand who’s who and than I will post something.

In the mean time we can discuss here your sensitive levels and if you’re able to take it while you dish it out and if you’re able to not get angry at words on a screen.

Actually, we have a fairly explicit list of rules, one of which is to be polite in the Introductions thread.

And, for the record, if you’re here to ‘expose’ me as a leftist, you’re a bit late to the party.

For real? These things exist? You would be a statistical anomaly if you followed your own rules and don’t ban people for whatever personal reason.
I mean I’d like to believe and I believe by default so I will try to take this site on the internet more seriously.
