nobody has been able to successfully impersonate my style. I cannot even get by with kidding folks by trying to use a different style and name. people know it is the same person, even when I use caps.

No. You just committed a logical fallacy. I'll leave it to you to go through them all to discover which one that is.
Do you wear a bun and sensible shoes. Because if you don't, you definitely should.
It is controversial what sort of shoes are sensible. I do not wear high heels. I bet you only are interested in women who are whores. others are to be minimized. it is not just religious types who are woman-haters - men with inferior intellects cannot stand women who are wiser than they.

I think your earth logo is pretty too. is there global warming melting some of the polar ice?
I hope so. I'm not concerned about a few dead polar bears.....it needs to stay warm year round so you won't have winter ice to use as an excuse to keep you from getting on the road to go to your church.

Pretty much yes you did and you know it. How many Atheists on here have you called Satanist? All of them yes? How many times have you said Atheist = Satanist or Satanism = Atheism? Many many times and you know it.

Epic fail as always.

I hate to tell your this, but the sun only shines on one part of the earth at a time.

But that's just details - no need to worry your pretty little creationist head with those.

Just pray the details will go away, and forgive the earth for presenting you with evidence that goes against your cult's beliefs.
