Are you not willing to answer this question, Keith?:
So I ask you again: Are you willing to admit you could be wrong about your beliefs in God?

A "Yes" or a "No" will do.  Are you man enough to answer?

This to me is *the* most important question to ask a Christian.  How about it, Majesty?  Enquiring minds want to know...

Well now it is about 8:50 in AZ. and nothing on the debate thread yet.

Nevermind he's back online...

I've been waiting all afternoon...took a break to walk a few miles on the treadmill, cook dinner, spend family time, watch some TV...thought for sure there would be something here seeing as I saw posts from Majesty when I came back to this thread, but, sadly, nothing yet. And now it's about bedtime. I'll be up for about another half an hour, but not all that optimistic about anything to chew on.

The debate thread has Majesty/Keith as a viewer.  Maybe he read kcrady's post and is actually putting serious effort into his introductory post there?  I would recommend that even if the public posturing is not earnest and reflects both dismissal and an assertion of dominance.  (Then again he could, like me, just have that page open in a tab while off doing something else like eating, sleeping, or [expletive deleted].)

LOL...go for it. Hope you have a better evening than mine is shaping up to be. It's bedtime at any rate. Husband has been asleep for the past couple of hours after getting back from a business trip, so the most exciting thing I have left to do is put the puppy in his crate and load up the dishwasher...

I just KNOW that Majesty is going to be stepping up to the plate any time now [...looks again at watch...].

In the interim, I offer this short film before the feature presentation. Any similarity to Majesty's actual postings is purely coincidental:

After several days (at least two) there has been no honest response from 'majesty.' ...  For some reason I think this debate may have been entirely over hyped.

Can    I    just    say     that,    personally     speaking,    I     would

      prefer     it       if       Majesty     spaced      out        his        words  
 
   just      a      little       bit        more   ?  


Not      that      I'm       spaced       out     myself,      or      anything   ....  


     ...    I      just        dig        gaps.

No doubt.  The lack of evidence for a theist argument is clearly evidence for the idiocy for a materialist understanding of the world.  A very few generations from now, GMT, we shall sit upon thrones of praise made to our ignorance of the world!

You could always prey to God to restore the leg you chewed off. That always works.

He did seem rather intent on a fast-paced debate format, initially, so I am a little surprised he's not leaped into the fray by now. I figured he'd be well on his way to devouring kcrady, whole. My 'benefit of the doubt' for him is fading fast.
