Could you boil this down to a 15 second advertisement?
You use a lot of polysyllabic words, well, like this:

So is whitey good or bad?
Polysyllabic words, not necessarily big words.

One of the main reasons that I surf the internet is in search of stuff to write about. There is so much fertile ground in cyberspace, but there are arid regions as well. Topix reflects that range. Some threads provide so much food for thought that it takes a day to digest and ruminate before the regurgitation process can rally get moving.

Yoiks! Did I really just say that?

Then there are the arid regions where words are sparse and ideas scarcer. This thread is winding down in that direction, but such threads do have one advantage: they form blank canvases on which to paint word pictures. I mean, really: how can anything meaningful flow in response to "Polysyllabic words, not necessarily big words." or even better, "I neither believe nor disbelieve. I know."? Someone is trying to corner the market on meaningless banality. jide oni, in trying to destroy atheism--and deluding himself into believing he has done so--has only succeeded in killing this thread.

'Bout time!

So long, old thread
Let's say enough said
the topic is dead
so give it a rest

So long, jide oni
hope you've not lonely
we're off to Coney
Island instead

of listening to your
weary old lines
your endless illogic
and empty opines

So long, old thread
sorry your dead
and stood on your head
but we are

Out of here!!!

nightserf,
you are really caught up at the borderline between mediocrity and bestiality, the latter of which is the permanent abode of the mikkos of this forum.
i have differentiated between polysyllabic words and big words on the one hand, and between monosyllabic words and small words on the other hand; let me repeat myself again here, perhaps the truth will now dawn on you.
polysyllabic words are long words, whether commonly used or not; whereas, big words are functionally rarely used and scarcely known to an average user of the language, irrespective of syllable structure.
also your confusion with the meaningful word game which your untrained mind could not parse is rather a sad one and evidently a discredit to the few intelligent atheists among the whole lot.
believers don't know, they merely make do with unsubstantiated, unproven belief.
non-believers too, are equally ignorant of what they disbelieve.
whereas what the believers and the non-believers don't know, i know beyond any reasonable doubt.

On a forum that consists of written posts, how does one assess the level or training of the various minds that express themselves? I suggest the the best way is to assess the quality of the writing that each produces. Are the ideas presented in a natural and logical sequence? Do the writers make good use of paragraph structure? Are the posts no harder to read that the ideas in them require?

A well trained mind will produce clear and well ordered text. One with less discipline will produce scrambled, messy text with ideas that are presented with a randomness that makes it hard to follow while the better organized one's will flow naturally from on sentence to the next and from paragraph to paragraph from the beginning of a post to the end.

In addition, the sharper mind will employ well established techniques like comparison and contrast to support whatever point is being asserted. Points of contention will be supported with logic and evidence and any documentation that may be required. A good writer may also provide examples to illustrate the points as they are made where appropriate. Lesser writers make bald assertions but fail or even refuse to support them.

Really bad writers try to cover up their deficiencies by using advanced vocabulary with an awkwardness that reveals that their linguistic reach exceeds their grasp.

I leave it to the readers of this forum to decide whose minds are untrained.

A trained mind is quick to discern the hidden causes back of unusual happenings;
A trained mind readily engages his co-discussants in wholesome arguments;
A trained mind watches his utterances, that he might ever be of good cheers;
A trained mind does not dishonestly curry the public support against an honest opponent;
A trained mind will swiftly shift position in favor of a superior one;
Let a trained NightSerf unreservedly drop his moribund Atheism for the vibrant Universal Religion now, that his shackled conscience might be set free.
