Thanks for your heartfelt concern, but it's not possible to take vacations any more. I used to take vacations to get away from my work-a-day world in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, the "Gateway to the Ozarks" - often in Mexico. We liked those vacations so well, we made them our life.
Now you want me to go back "down in the holler" for a vacation?

I hitchkiked down into Branson (before it was what it is today), back in 78 or 79. Me and a friend were on our way to Little Rock but we never made it. We decided to stay in the State park there for a few days and we had a blast. The guy that took us to the park was a hillbilly. When i hopped in the back of his pickup truck I wasnt sure if I would ever be seen or heard from again..........LOL.

No I did not use corporal punishment on my wife.

She treats posters as they treat her. Those that respect her education and expertise are treated with respect. Those that don't are treated differently. They mostly are idiots.
Maybe you didn't see how this situation evolved. It didn't begin with Hiding saying "You are an uneducated idiot." It began with Christian anti-intellectualism.
People like Hiding, an academic, Catcher, a successful attorney, and I are used to deference in our areas of expertise. We come to Topix and encounter these Christian baboons and their arrogant insolence in our fields of expertise. For example, we have a felon / drug addict telling the attorney about the law and demeaning him as an attorney, and you've seen how he deals with me on medical issues.
We all three handle it differently, but none of us is going to return respect.
<quoted text>
That wasn't about their education level. When they call pro-choice advocates baby murderers, I treat them with contempt as well. It isn't a matter of not having the best writing skills or knowing the most proper words. It's about intellectual dishonesty. They choose that language deliberately, and they are dealt with accordingly.
<quoted text>
Why would she treat them better than they treat her?
It's quite hypocritical of you to say that we are using "arrogant insolence" when in the very same sentence you called us "Christian baboons".

No one is perfect. If that doesn’t suit you then you could always set a good example, or not. But being such a hateful grouch contributes nothing good to society so you have no leeway to complain if a Christian isn’t perfect.

Maybe that's because you got a "lawyer" saying things like "not-responsive" and saying you can use you own legal terminology in court.

Or saying he could get testimony stricken when credibility is an issue for the jury it saying he could get murder weapons handed over voluntarily kept out. It maybe lying about bring a big criminal defense attorney he usually handles big cases like murder is why?

Or maybe because a "doctor" who has written thousands of scripts for opiate pain medications claims they aren't physically addictive and that most people can't even get addicted. Then later says everyone knows they are habit forming and claims "we" as in the medical community is trying to move away from the word addicted to cover for either your ignorance is blatant self-serving lies

Why should people defer to you two? You had to commit insurance fraud to pay your bills and retired in Mexico. You guys are neither successful or knowledgable on basics. And will lie to try to make yourselves look better.

Respect is earned. You are a made-for-Topix bigot clown. Now go put on your big red nose "dr"

You may not agree with ole Markesa, in fact I'm sure you'll find some way to excuse HFN's behavior, but the quote sure beats the hell oput of Bill Mahers chit.

There is nothing wrong with the religion, there's something wrong with some of it's followers.
religion has served a purpose in (social and cultural) evolution (it is quite possible to form an argument that religion has aided in species survival).

In my view humans no linger require religion as a cultural meme.

worse.

the abrahamic faiths have corrupted the function of religion as a benefit, so-much-so that it is now a deterrent to survival.(opinion).

The intellectual bereft are attracted to religion, one must keep this in mind when analyzing the behaviour of the "followers".

christianity has been corrupted by it's leaders.

And you can go on pretending to have superior understanding of a book that can be understood in any way, and I'll go on exposing that as well, OK?
LOl exposing your ignorance you mean

And let's see. You were raised an atheist yet as an adult became a Christian because you chose to

You just said you had a good church

You said after leaving the faith you were indifferent to Christianity until you came on Topix

So all your rants about Christianity on a society you don't even live in and how evil the bible is from you is just more made-for-Topix fraud. You just like the attention.

Actually, I agree with that. I find it incredibly laughable when people life is limited to 'Earth-like life'. Who knows? An alien species could be something we can't even imagine, could be a conscious cloud of dust, or a physical body no human has even thought of.

What you say, I agree with. That there is a "high probability" of alien life out there.

But for a person to say "there MUST be" seems a bit arrogant and wrong.

Yes it does. You believe there's alien life in the universe. Until proven, that's your belief.

I never said anything about being mouthy, missy. Mouthy is meaningless over there. I said you were heavily invested in your human condition, and that it would be interesting to watch how they turn you. They won't have a hard time, it's what they do. It might take a while, but time is one thing they've got plenty of.

That's the answer these days.

But in my days of private practice, it was because no patients wanted to come in on Christmas, no employees wanted to work, and the lab didn't pick up blood samples, which would have sat at least an extra day before being processed.

Working Christmas day really wasn't an option.
