How stupid can you be wrote, "<quoted text>Is a vagina made for a penis?
Anything else is perversion, an abomination against God, and nature!
case closed, end of story!
"

There are plenty of other places to stick a penis that can be fun for both parties and are completely harmless. Those are all "abominations"?

No, they aren't. Abusing a child, sexually or otherwise, is an "abomination". Destroying a child's ability to think by forcing dogma on them is an "abomination". Condemning an entire group of people that aren't hurting anyone simply for being the way they were born to be is an "abomination".
Yes, I can. And I did. You said you read everything. Did you miss it?

Jesus sounds like he was a nice human being in their book as well though, from what you have posted.

There are still many depths of oceans (even aside from more easily, accessible, ever shifting plates) that we have yet to scientifically explore, to their fullest potential.
You should read it sometime. It is meant to be another witness that Jesus is the Christ.

My entire statement was about pattern detection and how it lends itself to post hoc fallacy. So, if you agree with it then why do you call it "frosted donkeydung"?
The second part of your post was focused on pattern detection, but not the first, which I opined to be more along the lines of frosted donkeydung.

"FACT?"
I could 'matter of factly' analyze and compare pieces of Shakespeare's works, or Verne's or Vonnegut's or L'Amours or Tolkien's or Rowling's or Ludlum's.... There is never a dispute that their works are fiction.
In faith, the lines between emotion, imagination and reality are blurred beyond separation. "FACT" becomes as elusive in definition as a breeze among zephyrs.
As I stated to curious, I have no interest in dissecting and debating line and verse. A position based on "because I believe it no matter what you say" is impregnable to objectivity, integrity and honesty.
"FACT", as in plenty of comparable reading to contrast with.

Your position in tediously dissecting and debating line and verse, I would agree. Waste of time and breathe....especially since there's too many different perspectives, of personal opinion.

Were the solutions provided me caused by random chance or normal processes or was it God answering my prayer?
Now,if you can explain to me,in a logical way, how normal processes or random chance played a role in answering my pryaer,It would greatly be appreciated.
PS. I am reffering to events that I,personally have experienced,not on some type of hypothetical illustration
Easily. If you had never prayed could it still have happened in the exact same way? If the answer is yes, then you have no proof of an answered prayer or miracle.

So many religious people want to play both sides of the prayer thing, as well. They pray for something and it doesn't happen? It wasn't God's will. Praise God. They pray for something and it happened? God is great! Praise God. This is NOT an objective way to look at things. The only conclusion that can be logically drawn in a world where both of those things happen is that prayer does nothing. You cannot provide evidence for a single instance of prayer actually doing something that wouldn't have happened anyway.

Degrading implies a lowering. I am not doing that. I am identifying their position. They lowered themselves to it. I don't make people say idiotic things or be bigots or act like they are mentally deficient.

And sure, it's fun, but you still don't understand. I'm not calling you names right now, am I?

You really need to familiarize yourself with the internet and stop being so scared of everything. You should be able to tell enough from the URL to know that it's not going to destroy your computer. I'm trying to get your opinion on something and it just looks like you're being hard headed or avoiding the discussion. Frustrating.

No, I guess you're so eager to hand out insults you can't take the time to read what you're responding to.

The entirety of my post was about pattern detection: http://www.topix.com/forum/city/somerset-ky/T...

I was responding/adding to a post from _Ummm_

Or did you think I was agreeing with myself?

So an ear could reattach in a matter of minutes with no medical tools or professionals involved? Show me where that has happened before.

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.

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.

The fact is,that it did not happen under normal circumstances,moreover,the events that took place,that led to the response I received,could mnot be explained logically;
This is the rest of the information that I provided you with,which your response did not address,possibly because you were unable to.

"If,at that time,you turn to God,in prayer and as a result an answer is provided,one may still conclude,that it was a coincidence,or random chance.
But,if,as time goes by,you are again cinfronted with a series of other problems for which you cannot find an answer by turning to science,and neither normal processes or random chance,have provided you with a solution,
,And you again,turn to God, and as a result ,a solution is provided, time and again, and you can not logically explain the events that led to that solution
Then,you have a choice to make.
Were the solutions provided me caused by random chance or normal processes or was it God answering my prayer?"

Anyhow,I know the reasons for the basis of my FAITH,It has been succesfully tried and tested and sits on a solid foundation.
Nothing that you have posted in your response,in any way contradicts,the basis for my beliefs and Faith.

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.

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.

But those aren't my words or opinion. It's a popular Christian site, and they are explaining their beliefs concerning the topic.

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.
