What you seem to have a hard time wrapping your head around is that I couldn't care less what you think about me or my religion. Your opinion and arguments in that regard are completely meaningless to me, so you are wasting your time making that argument.

No, I'm definitely not intolerant. If I don't like somebody, it's because I don't like them as a person, their race, sexual orientation or choice of religion has nothing to do with my decision.

But with that choice of article, and your subsequent "arguments" on the forum definitely make a good case for you being extremely intolerant of anybody who disagrees with you.

But keep it up, it makes for really funny stories, and gives me a good laugh.

It wasn't supposed to be a helpful remark, just a question I had.

I think if you believe the bible is all knowing, factual, and not full of contradictions, then you don't understand the bible. But if you're okay with that, then whatever floats your boat.

Isn't the point of posting something in a forum to discuss it? Posting something and claiming it is only for the benefit of other christians and not something to discuss or debate is disingenuous. If that was the true goal, you would have PM'd the other christians that regularly read this sub-forum or posted it on a christian only forum.

Just sayin'........

If you want to discuss it, knock yourself out. Just don't expect me to get involved in the discussion.

Honestly, I've posted a lot more than I intended to already.

Edit: What's truly unsurprising is that the subject of the article was intolerance on the part of some atheists and the "discussion" immediately became an attack on the religous beliefs of Christians. Telling, no?

That's textbook delusional thinking. You aren't open to evidence, you don't care about reality, you're firm in your dream land and no one can reach you.

No, dropping off an article that accuses people who believe differently than you as extremists, and intolerant, then not having the intellectual honesty to defend it is being a troll. And evidence of your intolerance.

Hit and run tactics preserve your ego because you don't have to risk getting your arse handed to you in a debate.

No no... you don't understand... they're three in one... that's the mental gymnastics they do to avoid admitting they're Poly-Theists.
And you sir seem unable to absorb the concept of staying on topic. If you can't do something as simple as that, why should I care to engage you?

No the conclusion works the other way around. "We cannot be Poly-Theists because the 1st Com says not to be... so obviously the three gods we worship are one in the same." It's establishing your conclusion first and then reasoning from there to support it.

Yeah I know... duck and dodge troll. Do anything you have to to keep from actually having to defend your ideals.

Well, one of my ideals is tolerance. What is your problem with that? Do I really need to defend that?

You are so tolerant that you immediately attack others religious beliefs when that wasn't even the original topic except peripherally.

YOU posted something on an internet forum, a place intentionally designed for DISCUSSION, and then you claim to not want to discuss it?

Disingenuous and sad.

I knew when I posted it what the knee-jerk reactions of certain posters would be and I was 100% correct. The majority of atheists here are totally intent on defending their religion and attacking other peoples religion even though that wasn't the subject of the article (which was intolerance on their part). (I must say they have pretty well proven the author of the article to be correct.)

If that makes me a troll, I'm OK with that. I already mentioned that I'm not concerned with your opinion of me.

You are still free to discuss this with your friends, I didn't take that away from you. Why is it so important to you that I participate in the discussion?

Comrade Happyguy

Why was it so important to post something you didn't intend to discuss? BTW, I've not discussed the content of the article yet so why do you assume I agree with the others?

What you said about posting something in a discussion forum with the intent of NOT discussing it is disingenuous. No more, no less.

No it isn't. You are only tolerant of people that agree with you. You never even addressed Grape's points because they immediately pointed out your hypocrisy. I'm sure you'd actually rather keep having this back and forth with me as long as you don't have to address your true intolerance.

Nietzsche can be quoted in public school for the same Reason Socrates can. They aren't religious figures. If you want to exclude every great thinker from public school simply because they aren't religious figures then we might as well teach ABC and 123 and cut the little uneducated idiots loose.

Jesus may not be quoted in public schools for the same reason Muhammad may not... because religion is not something for public educators to be presenting to children. That's up to the parents to decide. See... no intolerance there... just making it the parents choice.

In a world where the bible is allowed into the public schools... would you be ok with the Koran and possibly even the book of Scientology? What about the Satanic Bible?
