I'm only going by what was told to us.....I also talked to Judy (OSG) and Dawn and they both said you were a Professor who taught in a College. John hasn't got back to me yet...
So we all thought you said you were a Professor....
Your thoughts were based on supposition not my words. I have denied it for the last two years, every time Coffey brings it up. I did not become a Professor until 9 months ago. I have been a teacher of college level courses to teens and adults for over 15 years though. Perhaps that is where the confusion comes from. The title of professor was not mine until recently although Senecus called me that often.

Also, while not formally a college professor and never claiming such until recently, I could have used the term legally and honestly to describe my profession. I just never did.

"A professor is a scholarly teacher; the precise meaning of the term varies by country. Literally, professor derives from Latin as a "person who professes" being usually an expert in arts or sciences, a teacher of high rank."

....Salvation is through belief in Jesus
Which is "faith" as I posted and you disagreed with.

What is the difference between "belief" and "faith" ?

I don't see it that way. It's a question followed by a set up of three possible reasons. 2 of the 3 reasons are nonsense to the topic.
It doesn't not reveal a mindset, no more than if you asked if I was straight meant that you are also straight.
Why those reasons and not different reasons? Why would your second two reasons be racist and sexist?

Why didn't you talk about the erosion of the American manufacturing base? The neo-liberalism introduced by Regan that shifted vast sums of money from the poor and middle class (infrastructure supporting them) to the wealthy?

Or the economic rise of Asia? Or the massive build up of the American war machine at the expense of investing in new technology?

Only a sexist, racist, anti-atheist would come up with the three grossly oversimplified and utterly without merit reasons you did.

I gave you the benefit of the doubt b/c I'd assumed you'd lifted it from somewhere and would see reason if patiently explained to you. Those aren't real reasons - they are obfuscations for racism, sexism and fundamentalist Christianity.

I do as well. Saw in passing he said I was a raging homophobe. I laughed at that. These guys have a false (lie) narrative and no facts will bother them in the least. Just like the story I shared about the Denny's years ago. They see a few key words and the hate and agenda takes hold. Now if the homosexual that I know quite well told me this I would listen. These jokers, not so much.
I really don't read your posts, so I'm just totally confused about everything said about you. I've asked for a few clarifications, but I'm guessing you also don't read my posts, since you never provided them.

Stating that Duane said he was a Professor when he first came on here was not gossip.....It was me stating my opinion...Just like you do.
Maybe the word "gossip" seems too strong.--.sorry..
I was simply pointing out-in my post to RA / John Coffey- your positive 2 cents into
Red Apples' clear
agenda of lies and slander
was the reason he "god blessed" you..

The man has stated over and over he didn't claim that he was a professor
when he came here to wsjlm..
I wasn't here when G began posting here.. I was gone for a long time..
I have no idea what happened w you all back then.

Honestly, if John Coffey is involved.. It's prolly bs and hate..
And further more...So what!! Who truly cares ..except maybe some angry topix
Christians... And Larry ..lol.

The thing is, you guys usually argue on the same side. Neither of you are Christians, and both of you have extensive knowledge of religious history. Plus he apologized - so...uhm...I don't get it.

I am never dishonest. I have no need to be.
Plus, I esteem integrity as a virtue. That includes honesty. It's just not that hard to do, and I've gotten used to it, so, it would feel bad to violate. That makes honesty one of my cardinal values, although not number one.
Does that sound alien or unbelievable to you?
I also wouldn't accept such a conclusion from you. If I can and am lying to myself and don't know it, besides quibbling with you as to whether that should be called dishonesty, I wouldn't trust you to accurately identify the issue before the brilliant people that I know and trust.
Sorry, but your values are not mine, and you haven't demonstrated expertise in any academic area - certainly not in human nature. So, given your religious inclinations, which are hostile to my values, why would I accept your judgment?
I need to be more aloof like this.

"It's one of three things:

You didn't choose one of the answers that RR said it was. He didn't ask for options.
RiversideRedneck wrote: "Those are the three main, huge changes that occurred in the 60's and 70's. one of them is the culprit for the start of the fall of America.
Which one do you think it is?"
It's >one< of three things. Those are the three "biggest" changes according to RR.
RiversideRedneck wrote: "Which one do you think it is?"
How would you answer that question based upon RR's framing of choices?
Choose the bigoted option?
Choose the racist option?
Choose the misogynistic option?
Now, what would be a choice that people would be the most comfortable in choosing?
Using racism or misogyny to further or influence something, to result in an outcome you desire, is racist, misogynistic and bigoted in and of itself.
Does no one understand that?
No, Scar, I have to disagree. RiversideRedneck has spent countless years of research combining interviews with high ranking politicians of every sort, lengthy discussions with economists at every level of business from municipality to international, placed the entirety of the World Bank and IMF's economic writings into Nvivo, combing through the world's newspapers since 1945, and used a Cray to sort out the details.

He came up with the vague and misleading "America's downfall is due to either:"

1 atheists
2 blacks
3 or women

You have been telling that lie for two years and never brought my words forward.

You can take the time to go through thousands of posts "reporting" every one that you don't like but in two years you have never found a single one of mine that back up your pathetic lies.

You are a maggot and deserve to be squashed.

You refuse to listen.
That's ok.
You don't have to.
Once your writing has revealed itself to be X, no amount of pleading or stating on your part is going to change that you, in fact, wrote X.

Skom and Quin have never so loathsomely insulted and attacked me and my family. I have had nasty theological arguements with them and it never got as personal as the 5 maggots who are currently bashing me. I even apologized to CJ last month and offered to start afresh and he spit in my face.
Ok.. That's fair enough..

I base my respect on someone in how they treat ALL humankind.. Not just how they
treat my personal being..
I think that's how we differ here in our thoughts on the two I mentioned.

Q is vulgar (ask him about anal sex) and in no way a butterfly.. He is to you though- kudos to
you- but he's not to the world.
Skom.. well he's one of the biggest Christian disappointments I have witnessed, to date, on topix..
Enough said there.. His words speak volumes of what Jesus would not do and say to others.

I am just not used to such a density and persistence of loathsome people. It just doesn't happen in meat space.
I just can't help but believe that whatever it is that is generating such people should be changed.
And whatever the relationship, this phenomenon is obviously highly correlated with Christianity. I don't see any way around coming to that conclusion.
I think it's the anonymity of it all.

I posted to a few anthropological threads, and it forced me to use my real name. I...uh...brought my topix writing style with me and it got me into trouble.

:)

You see, they were spouting unscientific nonsense and I called them on it. As people, many of whom were practicing anthropologists, writing on an anthropology space, I expect them not to sound like "the man next door" in their explanations of human behavior. Anyways, that got me into trouble - and they used my name in their disagreements. So I clarified, got more polite, and then got a number of "can you criticize my book? Can you write a support letter to put on the cover"? etc...

I had to stop, since I started sharing my professional ideas with them - and these people are my competitors! Until I get my ideas published, in which case I can help them as much as I can. Got to be first!
