JB, I think we on this thread would appreciate it if you stopped engaging with Nam, a self-described a$$hole, and just responded to those of us who are genuinely interested in your ideas. We would not be taking the time to compose detailed responses to your post if we did want to hear what you have to say.
So many of your responses to our posts consist of 1)you getting defensive about something that someone said that you misinterpreted, 2)you getting defensive about the way we interpret what you say, and 3)you getting defensive when we point out your logical fallacies. So much defense when there is no attack. Why?
Then, instead of trying to clarify what you are saying or trying to understand what we are saying, you turn around and waste your precious energy discussing Nam's pointless insults. Why?
I think most of us have figured out where you stand on god, the afterlife, etc. We do not think your conclusions hold up to careful scrutiny, although you say you have examined your ideas in detail. Instead of explaining what your examination has consisted of, you just keep repeating your conclusions. Why?
You might want to go back and look at what people (minus Nam) have said in long, carefully written posts to you. Is it possible for you to paraphrase any of those posts to show that you understood what the person said? Like, "what I think you are saying to me, nogods, is _________. Is that what you meant to say, nogods?"
Then you might be able to respond point by point instead of a short angry remark that dismisses the person's effort in one sentence. If you do that, you might realize that people (minus Nam) here are not starting out trying to insult you. If you are not willing to at least do that, it begins to look more and more like you are trying to be a victim, instead of an equal participant in a discussion....
