Re: Pros & Cons of sharing anti-drama techniques on the Pit

Thanks for the reply, Aneris, In this instance though you aren't paying attention to what others have been telling you. I disagree. I have been paying attention, but I disagree with some of the opinions presented to me. That's why I keep asking for evidence of their claims. When I expressed my disag...

Re: Pros & Cons of sharing anti-drama techniques on the Pit

I don't doubt the atmosphere here is intimidating at times - but that seems almost a requirement of a forum about which someone is advised upfront that you need a thick skin. I have a very thick skin, and can easily handle welch and the others trying to goad me, *as long as* it's a level playing fi...

"You can't prove a negative" is the most egregiously bullshit statement to ever make rounds in the atheism community. I'm just gonna leave this here: http://departmen...

Re: Shall Mr Vacula Make a Misstep in the Capital of Eire?

Belief - n. - a proposition that one holds to be true I would go with this, but I would take it just one step further.

Re: Shall Mr Vacula Make a Misstep in the Capital of Eire?

Given that there's some pretty strong arguments that no gods exist, you should believe there are no gods. And if belief in no gods isn't atheism, then what is it? Which gods? Some people worship the moon as a god. The moon exists. The proof would have to be pretty complex to cover all the different...

Re: Shall Mr Vacula Make a Misstep in the Capital of Eire?

See, here is the thing. You can't appoint yourself sensei. You must be accepted as such. It should be clear that the proles here are not ready to accept your teachings. Perhaps it is your place, like Caine in Kung Fu, to wander in the wilderness, keeping your wits sharp and your rhetorical swords s...
