My bet is simple: Siro is an attention wh**re.
That's about it, really--
-- when Siro first started posting his ugly sh7t, I called him on his BS.
He then proceeded to stalk me to the other threads, and posted his inane crap.
So I concluded he was simply an attention sl7u7, and refused to play: I started ignoring him.
At first, he got really angry at me ignoring him-- he really, >>really<< hated that.
And his vitrol got really ... ugly.
But he revealed himself as just another True Believerô in the process-- something I called him on on Day One.
What a load of crap, you are really a non entity

I have never posted under different names at the same time.

I only post as "Thinking".

Don't judge everyone else by your pitifully low standards.

Very well said, I expect nothing less from your putrid god. I'd even bet that you are his mirror image.

I would like to put forward a contrary point of view about Siro: he is not stupid, far from it. I would guess that his IQ is average or a bit above. But he is a sad example of what can happen when intelligence is diverted towards that belligerent opposition that makes intelligent discourse all but impossible. That's especially true when his perceived enemies react in kind.

I propose an experiment: as many of us that can muster enough self-control should reply to Siro with courtesy, focusing on ideas rather than personality. Let's see how he reacts when his vitriol fails to cause the predicted reactions. Alternatively, we could ignore him altogether and see how he reacts to that, but I am curious: if we treat him with courtesy, even kindness, will he eventually respond in kind and join our discussions on a higher level or will he continue to post only to insult those with whom he disagrees?

I think the experiment is worth the effort.

Your experiment shall fail.
There is zero indication that this individual understands tolerance.

You're not sad at all. This fantasy of your's gets you erect. That's why you keep repeating it. Why must you insist on bringing your perversions into a public forum?

It's ok to mock anything if it's ridiculous. Your burning sexual fantasy is just as ridiculous as your silly belief in magic beings.

Plus I have iron chariots to defend me in case he is real :))

Oh, but that god-thingy is constantly mocked. We out right laugh at such silliness, but the true mockery comes from those who claim him god. For it is they who play at obeisance to the Abrahamic god, while quietly ignoring all those bits and pieces of his holy word, that makes them uncomfortable.

I'll give you a for instance: Have you ever even once, acted on your gods orders to stone to death, anyone who is caught working on his "set aside for worshipping him" holy day?.

No? Is your fear of serving prison time stronger than your fear of disobedience to your god?

Do not push a god whom you will not obey.

God's real, deal with it and if you don't like it, then go to hell.

It's silly in your opinion. Atheists are people who fight to be free to sin. Atheists are despicable, ignorant, arrogant and rude people who don't learn to respect other people's beliefs.

Um, isn't debating what Topix is really all about, except we can have some decent discussions of other things. I promise you if the other religious people on other forums of their religion find out about this forum and see you're disrespecting their beliefs, then this forum is finished.
