Talking to imaginary beings isn't healthy. Living a life of delusion isn't healthy either.

Which god will bless me? There are literally THOUSANDS of different man made gods.

I said a prayer to Ronnie James Dio (God of Metal)just yesterday and asked that "tonail" have the strength to re-post. It worked!!

What is this veil of heat that comes over people while they are sleeping? I have never felt this.

You still didn't answer the question. Why did you choose the Christian god as the one that you would follow instead of the other thousands of gods that man has created?

Not one tear has been shed for poor "toenail" who seems unmotivated to defend his/her spelling honor. I got the message: you better pray or you'll got to Hell. It didn't at all lead me to believe that "toenail" was honest or very nice - just a person with a message and poor communication skills. I'll say a prayer for him/her in hopes that he/she might find the strength to stand up to FDG and his rude, dishonest spelling regimen. Do you think it will work?
I think toenail was being honest about what he believes. You might have found the post offensive because you don't agree with his beliefs. But, really, when I asked you who you would respect more, I wasn't talking specifically about toenail and FDG.(I don't think FDG is dishonest.) I was talking about people in general. I was trying to make the point that when you're deciding who deserves respect, maybe there are more important things than spelling to consider.

I have seen people on these forums who could be English professors. Perfect spelling. Perfect punctuation. Perfect capitalization. Perfect grammar. But they were so incredibly dishonest and rude that I lost most of the respect I had for 'em.

When you go to die you well fined out weather prayer works or not , you need Jesus in your life ,Jesus knows your name !!
Ok, let's try a literal translation.. When you die, you will find out if prayer works or not. You need Jesus in your life. Jesus knows your name.

This doesn't offend me - I simply disagree. I am not concerned about an "afterlife" so I'm not trying to get into heaven. I like my life Jesus-free so I disagree that I need Jesus in my life. If Jesus does exist and he does know my name, he must certainly know that I haven't met the requirements to get to heaven so, I'm not concerned about that either. This post didn't motivate, inspire, enrich, or interest me - what about it should I respect??

What about it should you respect? The person who wrote it!

Toenail was just sharing what he believes. If you believed that people would go to hell if they didn't believe in God, wouldn't you try to warn them?

I can understand that the post wasn't enough to motivate, inspire, enrich or interest you. But I don't understand why it would be enough to make anyone be disrespectful to the person who posted it.

Btw, you never did answer my original question.

So, Tonail is stating what he believes but expressing himself on Topix with misspellings and no sentence structure. You expect the public to disregard his post presentation and look only at the message. I think FDG would agree, that's sort of idealistic. Toenail has exposed a weakness (poor writing skills) and shouldn't be surprised that someone would notice and point it out to him. Did YOU notice that his post had to be translated into English that any of us could understand? What FDG offered was constructive criticism - pointing out a person's faults so that they realize they should make efforts to improve. Toenail has set his writing standards too low and even though it was obvious to you and me, we did nothing to help. As a matter of fact, you are defending his right to continue posting in a way that would attract riticule.

I didn't mean to show Toenail disrespect or to discourage him from writing - writing alot is the way to cure bad writing skills. It takes courage to write on Topix posts - anyone could read it and want to start telling you about yourself. Now, maybe Toenail will try to write more coherently since he knows people are actually TRYING to read his posts. You can do it, Toenail! Use capital letters and punctuation. Read what you have written b4 you say it in front of everyone, just to make sure you've said what you meant. I believe in you, Toenail, I'm looking forward to reading your improved posts.

Oh, yes, would I respect rude proper spellers over nice bad spellers - NEVER! Spelling isn't very high on my list of what to care about.

What were we talking about? Prayer?

Well, you may have a point there. If FDG was just offering some constructive criticism in an attempt to help that person- that's cool. But if he did it in an attempt to make that person feel inferior- that's not cool.

His communication skills ARE inferior which takes away the majority of his credibility for the message he is trying to convey.

Haha, I would pray to anyone because praying is meaningless to me. But I usually don't, I find it to be a waste of time.
