I'm afraid you have completely misunderstood me, Jo. I haven't ever seen you abuse anyone. I was calling you a homey, not someone else.

i bet they'd be great with a little host and sacramental wine
Pumpernickel bread and beer, actually.
A little cheddar cheese, perhaps.

@neologist,
Don't forget to tell me when it's set, Neo, so I can come in and hog it all down, eh?

@layman,
I failed to speak up? Just ask Setanta, I was likely drunk, his long time take on me.

How, exactly, did you put me into the not give a **** column?
Be so kind as to point out what I forgot.

Ask him what? If you're a worthless lush? I already know his answer to that.

Ok, Jo, I won't press you on it. But I had a recent run-in with Glitter the other day when she misinterpreted something I said. When I explained my intended meaning to her, she just called me something like a "shifty liar."

Sometimes people become so wedded to their initial impression that they can't divorce it.

I suspected that, by using "scrubbing," you were perhaps implying the same thing. That I tried to insincerely "clean things up," I mean.

The thing is, could you beefs stop with the bludgioning?... Layman, tell us about yourself...what you have dealt with...


I aint goin into my life story or nuthin, Darlin, but with respect to this particular topic, I will say this:

Like probably everyone, I have been made the object of some bully's verbal abuse. Someone trying to act tough in front of his friends and punk you around, ya know?

In my experience, the best way to deal with that kinda crap is not to say a single word in your own defense, or in any way try to "deny" the allegations the bully is trying to make.

Best is to immediately bash his sorry face, without a word.

Funny how, once that happens, they cry like a 3-week old, and accuse you of "abusing" them, eh?

I've seen that lots of times around here. Not as often in real life, but it's there, too.

@layman,
I guess I should add that not everyone with a loud mouth is a blustering poseur. Some are actually willing to fight some. Some are actually willing to fight with dogged determination.

I've been in a good number of those kind of fights, too. I've won some, and I've lost some. But, win or lose, almost invariably, once the fight is over, you never have trouble with that person again

@layman,
In contrast, I've known people who are unwilling go fight. If they encounter a bully, they will not stand up for themselves and either submit to the abuse or run.

In my experience, neither "solution" ends the torment. On the contrary, it just gets worse and worse. Soon they are not just being subjected to verbal abuse. They're getting slapped around like a bitch. Some still won't fight. And then it gets worse yet.

Unfortunately, for those kind the trouble NEVER ends, unless and until someone steps in and fights for them.

Frank went on and on forever more; I personally remember something like 2436 times, or there abouts, of repetitions about the word 'belief'.

You like throwing your twang jive.
If you insist on doing that, add the music. I miss your thread.

I don't dislike you but you tend to meld non believers with evil scumbuckets, all dawkins all the time. Most of us aren't that way and you jump to that.

Me, I've never read Dawkins or Harris, no plans to.

I am simply sans belief. Do a little learning.

Live with it.


When someone says, "I believe a GOD exists"...they are sharing a blind guess.

When someone says, "I believe there are no gods"...they are sharing a blind guess.

AND THEY ARE!

Not sure why getting that message out there bothers you so much, but it is an important message...it is an obvious message...it is a TRUE message...

...and it is something almost everyone seems to ignore.

So I repeat it...and will continue to do so until it finally penetrates.

What is this then...the 2437th time?

Oh man, this thread has gotten hilarious. If it weren't for the stink of all the bullshit being shoveled, it might be worth while.

I am humbled to be in the company of so many heroic defenders of truth, justice and the American way.

@Setanta,
Hey, you didn't call anyone "asswipe" yet. The Layman treatment is working.

The descendants of the hellfire and brimstone revival meetings of the mid-19th century are often today's "Christmas and Easter attending church Christians." Shouldn't we learn how to be patient? Odd since we're all standing on the abyss of eternity.
