I can relate to not understanding what I write and...a novice thinker. I can understand not understanding you, a novice thinker? Yes, I agree. I can't understand what you write. I can only assume it mimics your impoverished thinking processes.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not picking on your miserable English abilities. I'm quite used to ESL speakers and writers. But, wow, you fit into a new category all your own.
Let's call it "senlessbabble2" for fun.

Yeah, I know, right. I totally succeeded in that - there wasn't a single logical or competent argument against me.
Thanks for bringing up my former glories! Too kind of you :)
<quoted text>
Just to help your English out:
"What a colossal failure that was. So you are very familiar with not understanding what you write. You are, additionally, a poor thinker."
Hey, no problem - you're welcome. Good luck in your studies, young man! I believe if you devote your every waking moment to studying English you, too, will become barely readable if not understandable. Perhaps, perhaps. But that's a long ways off. Keep practicing.
And chin up! Chin up my good man!
LOL. Bam!

This, ladies and gentlemen, mesdames et messieurs, damen und herren, was a bitch slapping.

Yes, I say that. But your negative stereotyping of Christians is so obvious.
If you hated stated that some Christians are good people, I wouldn't have argued the point.
C'mon, RiversideRedneck.

You know I'm not all inclusive when referring to Christians, and in the comments I do make.

I stated before, on this thread, that if the comment doesn't apply to you, then I'm not talking about you.

Lemme clarify. My Mother and Father are Christian, Grandmother, Uncles(7), Aunts(4)- all of their children and grandchildren(a few football teams worth). I live in the Appalachian south, and live here currently, all the rest of my friends and associates(people I work with etc..) are Christian. My Grandfather was a Christian, and taught me everything I know about the woods, herbs, my Cherokee ancestry, and so many other things. The same goes for my Granny, both born in 1910. My other Grandfather who died when I was young was born in 1894, and fought in WWI. Christians, all.

The only atheists I know here, total to 5-6, and 2 of those are my siblings,the other 2 are somewhat agnostic, or Agnostic Christian, it depends at times). I call them atheist, mainly because it's just a matter of time once you get to agnostic.

So, I do think Christians are good people. I also think some are not so good. But that's anyone, eh?

Does that clear things up?

Oh...okay...
So what you are really saying is that I am nothing and do not deserve to live.
You are probably not alone in that assessment.
no no, no no.

Unless you cut out part of Dr Shrink writing, I no see him say anything about you not deserving to live. You projected that thought and you write it.

Not mean to intrude writer, but don't blame no one for that thought you choose to write. You probably joking, but not put that blame unto the writer Dr Shrink.

He might not be the most loving Christian on the billboard, but he never tell you that you don't deserve to live. that not true.

[Jesus] paid for our past sins, most definitely (Rom 3:25). Forgiveness of future sins depends on our hearts and minds, though, and the reasons.
That's kind of useless to those of us born after his alleged death, since none of us had any sins at that time. Thanks for nothing, Jesus.

I think with some it stems from possibly these verses...
Matthew 12:30
"He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.
2 Corinthians 6:14
Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?
So if they are to believe their Bible...they have no choice to believe that we are enemies and that we are wicked.
Oh well...
Yeah, and maybe some of my effort here is to dispel that notion in some small way.

Do I think it'll be largely successful? No. But I've always been a dreamer.

If just a person or two gets it, and I don't mean leave Christianity, but understands that atheists or anyone who doesn't believe as the Christian does can be and are good people, then I'm good. The world is improved just a little bit more.

Do right, man.
I've known several "Christians" that I don't even want to give the time of day to, and I've known atheists that are super-cool, honest folks. And vice versa. I hate all this God damn stereotyping these people do.
I agree but I gave up on the idea, in topix, awhile ago..

And the fact that you were a gigantic intellectual Fail when you tried to make an argument for enculturation having anything to do with someone becoming a Jesus follower. And two, in one of your writings saying there is choice then in another writing saying choice is an [illusion], really show that you're an intellectual ant trying to act smart. But as in everything else, you fail at that as well.
Now interpret that writer, and good luck in your studies, you obviously need it :)
LOL! I can't decide what's funnier, your post (in a good way), or Chucky calling himself an 'optimist'...

?? can you point to an example on the billboard of a Christian that think if a person does not think as a Christian they are wicked and not a good person?

Seriously. I never see any Christian on here say if you not part of the Christian Religion you wicked and no good. so please, endulge me.

Because I know a lot of Hindus and Muslims and most of them are good hard working law abiding people, so I want to know who you talking about.

Laws that promote religion and the church, or that enforce its preferences. I'd like to see tax law regarding the church amended. And the laws defining the Pledge and national motto. And have a few blue laws removed. There are probably more.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
If you remove the tax exempt status from churches, you have to remove them from all "non-profit" organizattions. Habitat for Humanity would be pissed.
Why tell me? I didn't suggest that.

There's a lawsuit filed now by a non-profit organization against the IRS and the favorable treatment it gives to the church and to the church alone.
http://ffrf.org/publications/freethought-toda...

Habitat for Humanity will likely be tickled if the judgment is for the plaintiffs, the Freedom From Religion Foundation.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
Do the laws that define the Pledge & the national motto harm you in any way?
They merely embarrass me.

Using the currency as a promotion for religion probably and promoting faith with the Pledge may have helped me. It was pretty easy to expatriate without much nostalgia or regret, and I probably am indebted to the church for keeping my sense of inclusion and belonging to a minimum. My psychological roots were apparently much less deep than somebody who actually does trust in a god and identified with the "We" on his currency.

Why do you ask?

Do you understand that MOST Americans like them & want to keep them the way they are?
Once again, did you have a point with this, or did you just intend to imply one? Are you suggesting that what most Americans think is relevant here? If so, try using words and doing so explicitly: "This is what I think and why." Then I can rebut that claim.

It's a real neat way to use language - to express an idea overtly, precisely and clearly. You're going to love it if you ever give it a chance.
