Why so much grief?
If the height of betrayal in your life is to be found within the halls of Topix, then consider yourself very fortunate.
Yet I'd bet you've survived far worse.
Topix ...Really???
Hiya, Hick!

You see you state in this post you seached out for MY God in vain not YOUR God So you honestly never diligently searched at all.
My bad.

What do you suppose you are actually referring to doing differently?

You even think of yourself as a Lieutenant of Satan.
I think that you're confusing me with yourself. Remember, of the two of us, only you believe in Satan.
lil whispers wrote:
Your the one who wants God awol or you would not mock others for there beliefs.
Your logic is impeccable as always. That is clearly the only reason one would mock your religion: he wants the god to go AWOL.
lil whispers wrote:
You are very abusive mocker to people you do not even know never meet or probably never know.Has nothing to do with them personally but has everything to do with what they believe.
Then what you are saying is that I am mocking what Christians believe, Christianity, and not the Christians themselves. Mea culpa.

Thus the man who mocks one of God's children mock God.
I generally try to cut out the middle man and just mock the god directly.

Very good example of your continued absusive mocking.
Thank you. There might be more in the future.

Have you or anybody else made an argument for why I should suppress or censor such ridicule? I realize that you don't like it or support of its intended effect, but that's irrelevant to me. Of course you don't approve. We're on different sides of a cultural struggle.

Can you give me a reason to tone this stuff down any that should matter to me, or are you only going to just keep complaining about the ridicule?

Keep in mind when you make your argument that your church doesn't have much of a history of toning down its rhetoric against unbelievers, although we are most grateful that you are no longer burning us at the stake or impaling us with the iron maiden.

It doesn't exist. Plagiarism is an academic/journalism term for an academic/journalism setting.
Can you find any support for that position? I can't. I have yet to see a definition or description of plagiarism stating that. Those are merely the two environments where there are repercussions as severe as expulsion of firing.

You can also be sued in civil court if your plagiarism results in a copyright violation.

Most of the rest of it done with relative impunity save for the associated stigma attached, as Juice saw. But it is still plagiarism.

Yeah but you could mention other religions too, like, the Communists for example.
You probably don't want to call Communism a religion. It hurts Christianity to do so. One of the commonest arguments we see on the Internet against secularism is that without Christianity, America can expect to see genocide as with Stalin and Mao.

The principal rebuttal to that, apart from the fact that few secular humanists have any more interest in Communist regimes than you do is that Stalinism and Maoism are religions with human gods. Just like Christianity, they demand obedience and loyalty based on blind trust, are authoritarian, and quickly organize into violent organizations when able to do so.

The Affirmations of Humanism group these cults of personality together for being contrary to the principles of humanism, specifically, democracy, freedom, reason, and tolerance:

"We affirm humanism as a realistic alternative to theologies of despair and ideologies of violence and as a source of rich personal significance and genuine satisfaction in the service to others."

So you probably don't want to be calling Communism a religion. Let us do that.

No. It comes from the cover of a Grateful Dead album. Are you about to accuse me of stealing it without attribution to the source?
The use of the figure without attribution would not constitute plagiarism.

If it is a trademark, for example Charlie Tuna, and you use it for commercial purposes, you would be in violation of the trademark laws and could be enjoined from its use and liable for damages.

I disagree. You are including the term christian for a reason when there is really no reason to include it.
Yes, as usual, I do have a reason. And if I have one, how can you say that there be no reason to do so? You must mean no reason that you approve of.

You could just call skom trash, there is no need to add christian.
I didn't add it because I needed to.

Its apparent to anyone here with a brain that you have added it as an insult or to amplify the insult.
Insult who - Dim or Christianity? I have never attempted to hide or diminish the fact that I insult Dim as frequently as I desire, and with enthusiasm. Until I get bored doing so, I likely always will until he begs my forgiveness, if I give it to him.

Hey! Don't hate the playa - hate the game. Those were Dim's own rules of engagement. And he loves the game. He has turned down my offer to end it, which requires almost nothing of him. How many others have asked for forgiveness from one person or another on this thread since this matter began? A dozen?

But not the Dimwit. He forgave himself.
Rider on the Storm wrote:
Its an insult because its common knowledge here that skom is a christian. There is no need to point it out.
It's not about need. I didn't choose that language because I thought I needed to.

In HL's example, why on earth would someone need to point out that the person is white? Its of course to add insult. There is no other need to add it. JMO.......
I didn't know that that was an insult.

I think it's possible that beings can WILL themselves to evolve. Like whales, for instance. They used to have legs. They were wolf-like, and lived near the Indus. But they didn't want to be on land anymore because they preferred water too much. And then they became a whale, and there are whales that spread to EVERY ocean.
Yep ~ and the whale popped up from an organism from the sea or the land, no-one is sure about that bit, and popped up in EVERY ocean and thought, let's get rid of these legs, and Whale legs everywhere popped off and made themselves into something they wanted to be. Will power is amazing :)

.. look, Catcher inflicted an ouch on you, there's no doubt about it. For what it's worth, I do not think it noble. My guess? He became impatient with your logic because he travels in elite intellectual circles ..
I completely understand Catcher's response, and support it 100%- at least as much of it as I saw. Nobility is not the only value in play here, and not the highest one, either. Integrity matters more. So do truth and justice.

If you care to take a position on plagiarism here, for example, be prepared to be called a liar and moron for your trouble. I think that that justifies a firm response. And I don't buy the argument that that makes me the same thing as the original offender. Although I would prefer that all of the encounters here on Topix were noble, they are far from that, and I feel no sense of duty to offer any individual more respect than I receive form him or her.

Sorry if that seems base to anybody, but that's how it is for me, and it seems that that was how it became for Catcher. Maybe it's a testosterone thing. It makes us more aggressive.

I think that this expresses my sentiments well:
