It is our little friend Makesure. Upon these Topix threads he must indure his faith in man he doth abjure. How can he be so pure, yet remain off limits and obscure? Is he a foil and nothing more? He will not bend, his mission he remains objure.

Yet within this dark wood he doth blunder. While spreading this love of peace up yonder. The love, the mercy, his heart doth surrender. With the gentleness of blunt force trauma. Heed his words of wisdom he does proffer. Unless you get a better offer.

It's not an acronym.
It's named after an Internet user named Poe.

I see. Thanks. I found a reference to Poe's Law regarding the inability to distinguish religion from religiuos parody on the web.

That does sound like what Kitten was making reference to and now that I think about it, Makesure...well it could go either way.

I don't recall any acronym, however it's a take on a writer who did satire through exaggerated emulation.

That's the irony of it, with religious people it's always a toss up. It's just too hard to exaggerate that kind of stupid, especially for creationists.

Also sometimes "pinnacle of evil"

The concept is the same. By nature, you can't tell a troll from the real deal, I guess because denial and perpetual annoyance produce the same results.

I like the poetry response. When you've got lemons, make lemonade!

I see that you missed the fact that a *majority* of Americans believe that same-sex couples should have their marriages given legal recognition. Not merely as "civil unions", but as *marriages*.
The trends are *not* going in your homophobic favor.
<quoted text>
Delusion is when you ignore trends.
And yet, a significant majority of states don't recognize gay marriage, many of which actually have incorporated specific wording into their state Constitutions defining marriage as between a man and a woman. You've cooked your books. The only trend I'm seeing is tiny-weenie New England states, the ones who don't have a lot of other minorities in them, doing Gay marriage. That says something in itself as I see it, a liberal litmus test.

Momentum is a dubious thing. There was momentum in favor of the American NAZI party up until we got into WW2. The country is avoiding a problem, not solving one at this time. That problem is one of economics, and you're just walk-ons.

I believe that discrimination protection is always the result of flawed government, that that flaw is economics in that it is based on excess consumption of resources and unchecked reproduction. Reproduction is encouraged to increase the labor force at the expense of the well being of the workers.

Discrimination protection is VERY expensive. It will be the first to go, but before that, war is likely to happen, either due to economic failure in other countries, or by the same within. Either way, the last thing the aristocracy will tolerate is big mouths rocking the boat and disrupting their nationalism campaign.

Disrupting propaganda and not keeping secrets except your own is about all that you do. Too bad. What I predict is something on the order of a pogrom against you and yours. But you're going to do what you do anyway. They're going to do what they do anyway. The world is already in an overstimulated state. The train wreck is going to happen. We're living in a Quentin Tarantino film, and that is how the incomprehensible things like Nazism happen.

You don't appreciate the moral detachment that I feel other than to protect my own interests which are my own business. If I seem like a gay basher, it is because you're an obstruction. I would see our government on the side of the good guys when chaos happens, but you and yours are likely to prevent that. No matter how the aristocracy fall in line, you're destined to take others down with you. You're on your own!

Hang on tight to your statistics! It may become a rocky ride!

Dan from Smithville, have you ever seen the Banana Man video?
The guy argues in favor of Intelligent Design on the grounds that bananas fit perfectly in our hand and can be eaten neatly.
Therefore, God must have had our species in mind when he made bananas.
(Never mind the fact that bananas have undergone extensive breeding, and that what we buy in the store is a far cry from bananas in the wild state.)

The first time I saw that video, I thought he wsa an Evolutionists making fun of Creationists.
Imagine my surprise when I learned that he was serious.

When I was in Korea, I was served a crab for the first time.
I had trouble getting any meat out of the thing.
In another E-C thread, I suggested this as a rebuttal of the Banana Man argument.
Another Evolutionist wrote back that a Creationist could reject that argument on the grounds that crabs weren't kosher.

More assertions, still zero evidence. This is habit for you, we know, and old habits die hard, even bad ones like this. But you can do it. Start by presenting evidence.
Still waiting for those photos, by the way.
I have evidence that is good enough for me. Every person is different when it comes to their own understanding and somethng that I would think is obvious surely everyone else may not make a distinction in favor according to the same merit.

In other words you have no substantial evidence to make your assertions with. Therefore you are lying about knowing, or just wishing it to be true. Which is it?

I have one agate stone that is related to the place and time Jesus was crucified. The stone has a figure of a dark faced man lifting a square object and he is wearing a red hat that is round like a turbine headress and he is wearing white pants with a sword on his side that looks to me like a machete, he is wearing a red shirt and also he may have on red shoes. Now this is only one aspect of this particular stone and I think the man was the one who placed the superscription on the cross as in LUKE 23:38. Only the creator of the stone would know this and I know he is the Creator of heaven and earth.

No, I am not trying to cheat. I will will try and post another view of the same stone closer up on a different object and not say what I think it is. Give me a little time on this one,

I had a lot I was prepared to rattle off here, but realize there is no way to settle this debate. Minds are made up and without a spiritual 'awakening' there will be no change.
You might as well just take a poll and smile at the results. My facts will conflict or agree with your facts.
