Sour grapes, WN.
Not at all. I know you'd like to feel persecuted when people disagree with you, but it just isn't reality.

I sometimes wonder what happened to you in life that you feel the need not only to be right in everything you say, but not allow anyone else to be right at any time if it opposes your opinion.

Unlike you, I know that there are people who know more than I do on many subjects. You have even tried to tell women you know more about their bodies than they do, simply because you have to prove that you're more educated than they are.(Notice I didn't say intelligent, but educated.)

I try to learn from those who are more educated than I am in any area of life. But, I don't learn a damn thing from people who insult me for the simple reason that I disagree with them or don't live up to the standards they have invented for everyone but themselves.

Now you are free to try and insult me again.

Do you think you have enlightened anyone with your posts today? Or do you think they might possibly be seen as rantings of someone who can't be opposed?

What I have observed is a little boy having a tantrum.

I already have and I do.

The sad fact is that I have proven myself to a University board just, like your doctor, yet because I disagree with some of your amateur arguements, you get all pissy.

I am not the defensive one. I already KNOW that I understand what the discipline of the historian is about. Let me see yours, or anyone else's, credentials. I believe you and others here are the pompous frauds, not me.

You are the definition of depravity, which is why you are attract tend to the religion of the depraved. I am in a long line of women that you will never have, and who look down upon you with disgust and derision, and I know one day you will be someone's little boy toy in prison. Enjoy.
so you're telling me there's a chance? LOL!

you're the one who told me you have a nice ass; i'm just trying to be polite and placate you:)

well that's a shame that people who love power use anything within their power to control people. always has been and always will be no matter what the tools are. it even says in the last days that the anti-christ/beast will "ride the whore" (undiscerning shallow church) in order to gain power before he turns on her and "burns her with fire" kinda like what hitler did with the hand-wringing & emasculated lutheran church in his day.

i'm giving you good stuff in case you're really a rebel and not just a devil's butt-girl:)

you know that the opposite is true and that's why you have this insatiable urge to dominate me and put me down. you're kinda like the devil that way;)

<quoted text> .. If you truly want to learn, you might try listening to people like Hip G and X when they disagree with you. Neither of them are as stupid as you like to pretend.
Putting words in my mouth again.

I said X ahas become Jaded and hasn't contribuded anythign but trolling comments in over six months.

As for Hip, I don't think he is stupid either. I don't think your are stupid either.

I do think you are all so Hellbent on attacking Christianas that you are just being asses. Not sure why you are all so threatened by a bunch of poorly written books from over a millenia ago.

They are no more "proof" of anything than any ancient document is "proof" of anything. Without archaelogy or other tangible evidence to back it up, even Gallic Wars is no more than a story in a book that proves nothing more than a human put ink to paper.

BTW, it is things like the excavations of the Roman siege fortifications at Alesia that give credibility to Gallic Wars, NOT that it "isn't religious".

A "real historian" would have pointed that out.
All you are doing is "playing doctor" and expecting others to turn their heads and cough for you.

Sorry WN, None of you have me by the balls.

I have finally come to a conclusion (my opinion only) what...why...when...where...et c etc you changed "G". You were not like this when you first showed up at WSJLM.

You arrived there at around the same time that "X" made his last appearance there. At that time you thought "X"'s sh't didn't stink. No matter what he said you jumped on the band wagon with him and helped him fight the battles.

Then one day "X" moved on...I suppose he had either grown weary and tired of the lack of discussion...don't know why. For a few days you were like this lost puppy without your mentor...and yes...you treated him as if he was a mentor.

Then one day...you decided to step up and fill his shoes...you would become that alpha male dog whose sh't didn't stink.

On a personal level..."X" and I don't always agree. He does however (I think) understand that I approach life from that emotional side...that I am not student of history...and responds to me accordingly. He has never tried to make me feel like an idiot because of that.(He might think I am an idiot but at least he has never put me down for the lack of that knowledge).

You do (at one time you didn't...until you became some alpha dog whose thinks their sh't don't stink).

I would like to ask you one thing...

When you attacked over the breast-feeding issue you indicated that you had superior knowledge in that area because of your studies...that made you more qualified to speak over WN and me regardless of our hands on experience. Yet the other day on WSJLM you were discussing a subject with someone. Your statement went something like this...

Simply because someone reads about fishing does not make him more of an expert on fishing than the man that actually fishes.

I could not help but snicker...

The short of it all...

While I hate smelly sh't...I had more respect for you...liked you better...when yours did.

I'm surprised it took so long for someone to answer. I was waiting.. By your response it shows how little you know about faith, and the world for that matter.. How very sad. The only mental illness here is the one I'm responding too... God is soooooooooo amazing. Yes, he talks to me... don't care if you believe, or make fun. I am empowered by God's Almighty 'Holy Spirit". You have already lost...:) Tell you what Wiggle man... I'm going to start praying in the spirit for you day, and night ...starting tonight... I will check back to see how your doing..
Still Praying!:) Have a great day...

Ah, the true fundie comes out.

I have been enlightened by many people, you among them. But I am never enlightened when somone's ego is more important than actual conversation. I'm mostly amused and sometimes disgusted by the display some will go to in order to placate that ego.

I didn't make the alpha dog connection. But I do make the 'my sh*t doesn't stink* connection.

You're right. G has changed immeasurably, and I personally don't see it as a good thing.

Is there a degree one can get in humanity and humbleness?

1. Yes, I changed. I learned much.

2. X changed from intelligent discussion to trolling and I never agreed wiht everything he said and as time wnet on I agreed less.

3. You have the cart before the horse. I used breast feeding to show that physical contact between children and adults is not a priori "pedophilia". I was then bashed for doing so. The arguement that giving birth makes you an expert on physiology is a bunch of crap and you know it damn well.

I am sick of all the "know it alls" yet when I can prove that I do indeed know things and provide the credentials to prove it I am bashed again.

You can believe anything you want Annie, I am happier now than ever and have realised that in many ways I AM better than many people, smarter than many people and most importantly that I don't have to be what you or anyone else thinks I should be.

Well said...Confident people don't have to flaunt, or prove their intelligence. Their secure enough in their own being, not to anguish about what others might think... A good motto to follow... "Love & Listen."(in that order) N :)
