You have no counter to my arguments-- so you try to belittle instead.

I can no more make myself BELIEVE in YOUR delusions than YOU could fly by flapping your arms real fast.

If you have a magic formula that could instill this FAITH you go on about?

Something short of hitting myself in the head to cause severe brain damage?

Then you MIGHT have a valid point.

Internet TROLL Chickenboy12

Why do trolls do it?

I believe that most trolls are sad people, living their lonely lives vicariously through those they see as strong and successful.

Disrupting a stable newsgroup gives the illusion of power, just as for a few, stalking a strong person allows them to think they are strong, too.

For trolls, any response is 'recognition'; they are unable to distinguish between irritation and admiration; their ego grows directly in proportion to the response, regardless of the form or content of that response.

Trolls, rather surprisingly, dispute this, claiming that it's a game or joke; this merely confirms the diagnosis; how sad do you have to be to find such mind-numbingly trivial timewasting to be funny?

Remember that trolls are cowards; they'll usually post just enough to get an argument going, then sit back and count the responses (Yes, that's what they do!).
Trolls don't have friends. On the internet, because they interact with human beings, they can convince themselves that they are important, the centre of the universe - that, to them, is better than any friendship.

Don't forget, the troll thinks he is always right, and therefore better than other folk. In real life, exactly the opposite applies. the troll has no friends and virtually no interaction with other people.

If he's a teen (many are), then he lives in his bedroom, trolling, playing computer games with 'friends'(who he doesn't know at all), and joining roleplay sites, where - of course - he is a hero, or a powerful villain, who is respected in an inverse ratio to the respect he feels for himself.

If he's an adult, then he has serious social issues. He may work, where people think he's a weirdo, and avoid him, he may sponge off his parents or be 'looking for work', which means he blames everyone for his problems. Except himself.
Most people who are out of work are nothing like the stereotype; most want to work, and gain their self respect through work and being part of the world; but the troll IS the stereotype whining scrounger, to whom the world owes a living.

Almost every troll is male; I don't know why this is.

The troll has few social skills, and most have never had a girlfriend, many never will.

There's a clear pattern among trolls; they are much more likely to ignore posts known to be from women. And when they do respond to women, they are much more likely to be brief, abusive, condescending and patronising.

This is almost certainly more due to fear than misogyny - they just don't know any women. Except Mom. But their attitude rather reduces their chances of reproducing, which is probably a good thing.

As previously stated, if you are interested, there are books written by Buddhist and New Age Authors. I don't think you have what it takes to read them. Just as I find some stuff you read to be boring, or not exact.
I can see now that you are to cowardly to answer my questions, probably because you realize how bizarre they would sound. Usually when someone is passionate about what they believe, they are anxious to share it with anyone interested. You apparently are not that passionate about this energy thing you say exists, otherwise you would have no trouble answering simple questions.

I make it a habit to NOT read books about magic posing as reality I KNOW that if this soul thing was real, and part of our physical makeup that Neuroscience would have no trouble detecting it. There is NO evidence for a soul, NO verifiable support for this energy bullshit, only obscure books "New Age Authors." You know what New Age stands for? The same old unsupported shit dressed up in a new suit of cloths. As if putting the handle, New Age, somehow validates the still unsupported claims for soul and this wandering energy bullshit. And the really pathetic part is you don't even realize how totally bizarre you sound. Energy wandering around imbedding itself into certain individuals. How you get to be selected for this magical energy is unknown. But you better put in your order as soon as possible apparently there are so many Intelligent entities i the universe there is not enoughtenergy to go around. I don't mean to be rude, but..you are &uking insane.

Faith and Atheism is not a mental illness. It is choice made by free people.
Faith is what is needed when sufficient evidence is unavailable Fait is the permission Theists give to each other for believing those things without evidence, Faith is GULLIBILITY. Faith is NOT a pathway to truth. To believe so strongly about something without evidence that you build your entire life around that belief, is insanity. Most people care whether or not their belief are TRUE, and truth can only be varified by science.

YOU are Bongo's alter-ego, just as sponge-bob loofuah is.

Hmmmm.... it almost fits:

## You both demonstrate a complete lack of education
## you both post hate
## you both post pathetic attempts to insult, when you cannot get your way

## you both believe in 100% bullshyt.

So are you the same poster?

Even if you are not?

IT DOES NOT MATTER:

You are both unable to convince a rat to go for some nice cheese...

Reality is not a popularity contest, you ignorant baboon.

In China? They believe in ancestor worship, and magical spirits-- hardly an atheist country as you pretend.
