So an ear could reattach in a matter of minutes with no medical tools or professionals involved? Show me where that has happened before.
Or better yet, you show me where it has ever happened at all. If hearsay counted, we'd have conclusive proof of bigfoot, aliens, ghosts, loch ness monster, Thor, Zeus, etc. etc. We've been through this. There are millions of occurrences throughout history of people claiming to witness something supernatural. That's not proper evidence of those things. Given the amount of evidence to the contrary (and the fact that many of these witnesses are not known to be liars), it's more likely hallucinations.

That was a terrible attempt at trying to justify how your name calling is not degradation. And I'll use your definition and still nail your actions when you brag about how smart you are as compared to everyone else on topix. This is lowering others. I really don't care that you do it, but I'm calling a spade a spade.
I'm not justifying anything. People say stupid things, I call them stupid. I'm "calling a spade a spade". Duh. Degrading is what people do when they call me stupid, because I'm clearly not and nobody has evidence to support such claims. I haven't posted a single thing that could be described as such when I'm being serious and not just messing around.

And how, exactly, is me saying I'm smarter than any given person "degrading" them if they are indeed exactly as I describe? You must be using some definition of the word that I am not aware of. To me, it means to unjustly portray a person more negatively than they truly are. I don't think saying I'm smarter than a person does that in any way. And regardless, there's plenty of room below that bar for one to feel very dignified in their level of intelligence.

As far as links, give me your own words. I don't post links to LDS sites that I know you don't care about reason and ask you to follow them. You would already doubt the source anyway. I also don't post scripture links and ask you to go read them. I speak in my own words and include a quote when necessary.
But those aren't my words or opinion. It's a popular Christian site, and they are explaining their beliefs concerning the topic. I was interested in your opinion on it because it seems different from yours, yet you are playing the old "I don't click links" game. I don't get it. I'm not paraphrasing a 3 page website, and it's a stupid expectation for you to have. If you don't want to give an opinion, don't.

Explain yourself. I did not say "normal circumstances". I did not say "that you could not explain logically". Tell me what happened and how my actual question applies.

Also, my response DOES address it because if it's true, it invalidates the remainder of your post.

Wow dude. Your arrogance seems to have warped your sense of self realization. Your interaction with others, as you just described it, is hypocrisy, but you can't even see that.
Nevermind, I know I will never get through to you on that one, so continue to talk down to others and not call it degradation. We will all continue to read it and shake our heads. After all, everyone should come to accept your reality that everyone else on here is indeed inferior to you based on your own scale of intelligence that you measure everyone on.

Sorry you can't control me by making me click your links. If you really want to know my opinion, just ask in your own words.

And here we go again.

Are you still going on about the "mysterious events" surrounding your runaway dog? If so, those events can be (and were) explained logically. They weren't even that remarkable.
Of course, that's my opinion. But, I don't recall anyone else on here being too impressed by those events either, so I don't think it's just my cynicism.

Wow what? Do you really think you as so astute as to have a better realization of what I'm saying or doing than I do? Go ahead and tell me how this is hypocrisy. Show me where I call people stupid when they aren't saying stupid things.
You need to figure out what that word means. It doesn't mean "that person is doing something I don't like". My actions are consistent with my standards, so this is NOT hypocrisy.

If one will never get through to me on any topic, it's because what they're saying is bullsh!t. I am open to anything and everything that makes sense.

I don't measure based on some crazy metric. I look at the same things that any reasonable person would. And I don't make blanket statements about "everyone else here". Sure, I might make a declaration about some smaller group, but do you really think I'm wrong? Do you really doubt that I'm intellectually superior to anyone I felt like going out of my way to explain it to?

Our creator has nothing to prove. He will not make you serve him. It is a choice. You can believe on him or you can deny him. The decision is yours. He is a god full of mercy, love, peace and forgiveness. There is No greater god. He's not a god that encourages hate and violence and hurt. Why would you not want to serve him? He will change your life for the good.

No dude. What everyone has tried telling you, it isn't welcomed and it isn't necessary. When you see someone in public that is off the charts ugly, I mean "gotta tie a steak around their neck to get the dogs to play with them ugly", you still shouldn't walk up to them and say "dang you are ugly!!!" If you did, it would certainly be lowering them and raising you, and it certainly does not help that person in the least.

Then use the right word. Call me rude. I don't care. I am very rude on here at times. That's not the same thing as degrading.

Regardless, your example is poor, as I don't use negative terms to describe things people can't help. If I'm insulting people who are actually incapable of bettering themselves, it is not intended.

BUT ANYWAY... now that we've gone down the "you're so mean" road for the 50th time, feel free to actually discuss the topic at hand.

If your "rude" displays are not intended to make people feel less than you and raise yourself up on some pedestal, then you seriously need to work on your communication skills, as that's how it comes off to others that don't live In your head. But anyway, like I said, whatever, if that floats your boat, have at it.

What topic do you want to discuss now? Miracles don't exist because you haven't witnessed one?

Absolutely, as well as many other "religious" texts.

It's a Constitutional American right to do so. It is NOT a Constitutional American right however, to terrorize anyone, based upon readings or beliefs from any of them.
