I thought it was interesting. I'd like to ask that scientist a couple of questions, but I still didn't think it was something over which I would have had the giggles.

Of course, it has been the brunt of a lot of hate from Christians, because it means they didn't really make a choice about their decision to be theistic.

The thing is, most of them didn't make a choice anyway. They were brought up in Christian families/communities and therefore became Christians. Changing sects of a religion is not exploring different religions. It's finding something within the same religion you like better than you liked about the last sect.

So there are really very few decisions made based on actual study and participation in a religion before the decision is made.

Many claim to have done so, but in actuality they may have read a few lines written by someone outside of those religions and made a choice against it. I would say that's the case for about 80-90% of the people in this world.

<quoted text>There is a real lesson in this. Don't tell people how great they are until you know what they are really like on Topix. You can bet that waassuupp, viking and all their ilk are smiling in church every Sunday while thinking about someone's pubic hair, how they wish people were maimed and dead because they don't believe in the stuff spewed from their keyboard, and sometimes just because they are female.

You put yourself in a really precarious place by agreeing or disagreeing with *anyone* until you know what that person stands for. You also put yourself in a precarious position by agreeing with people just because they identify as Christians.

Give everyone a chance, and wait...
You're right.

<quoted text>Yes. Someone said their hair was red and you went on and on about how you love red pubic hair. Then you continued to ask her for a date after she told you time and time again that she is happily married and did not appreciate your advances and asked you nicely to stop. But you didn't. You still haven't.

It's obvious that you wish to remove others rights to have an opinion and ask them to be quiet. That doesn't agree with the Constitutional rights of the person who you addressed or anyone else, for that matter.

You're still just a creepy little guy who doesn't care about being the worst representative of God you can possibly be.
That's good stuff Water.

Did I tell you what you can & can't say? Or did I ask you a question? Are you actually a Christian? How did pubic hair 'just come up'?

<quoted text>Take some free advice: don't be offended by people you don't know, don't like, don't trust, and don't respect and people who are on an anonymous website. It's a waste of time.

But that advice is worth to you what you make of it and may be worth to you exactly what you paid for it.
It's good advice. Thank you <3

<quoted text>Absolutely zero non-Christians on this thread have ever harassed women here.

But, you did prove one thing that you sort of halfway denied earlier on this thread. When I said if you typed long enough I'd figure out who you were. You said something to the effect that all people with multiple personalities on Topix think everyone else has them and challenged me to prove that you were ever someone else. All I had to do was wait. You've claimed here to have been on topix for 6 years but the date showing for this personality is last year. Thanks.

I think a lot of people have other personalities that they use for different circumstances. I used one once but I couldn't do two personalities.

But the thing is, had you asked, I wouldn't have denied using another personality. In fact, I admitted to it at the time and laughed at myself for it. It was all a joke a group of us were playing with someone who was being about as nasty as viking or TLC or some of his/her other socks.

I don't see that there is ever a need to be dishonest about it. You could have just said 'so what?' and I'd have been fine with that.

It's all good though.
Whatever you say. We'll get into it a bit later. <3

This will be the only post tonight for me. And it is, I think, especially relevant to a not too distant discussion on this thread.
Often when I point out pilfered words on Topix, I hear in reply that the material wasn't copyrighted. Antiquity knew nothing of copyright, but plagiarism was taken very seriously:
<quoted text>
Ehrman, Bart D.(2012-11-16). Forgery and Counterforgery: The Use of Literary Deceit in Early Christian Polemics (p. 53). Oxford University Press, USA. Kindle Edition.
But more importantly, since the authors of Luke and Matthew plagiarized from Mark and the author of 2 Peter ripped off a large chunk of Jude, doesn't that make those NT authors thieves?
Oh my.
Yes. Just like taking a Babylonian flood story and turning it into a Jewish flood story is theft.

Ain't that how religions work?

<quoted text>Yeah but who made the first pair of sunglasses? Who's behind those Foster Grants?
The first sunglasses were made by prehistoric Inuits using ivory with slits in them to reduce the glare of the sun. The Chinese used smoky quarts to do the same, but much later. Don't remember exactly when. But it does seem the Inuits have the corner on sunglasses.

Never mentioned in the passage you just referenced.

It's not as unusual as one might think.

Still more projection..
translation: I just don't really have anything to say that can refute a Christian. I know I should throw my hands up and give my life to Jesus cuz I know He does exist, but I just want to be evil, hateful , and full of disgust.

More than you can imagine.

One Christian can do more damage to Christianity than thread full of skeptics.
