New Moderators
« on: April 28, 2016, 01:51:19 PM »
All,

We have recruited two new moderators for better coverage across the boards and times. Jaimehlers and jdawg70 have agreed to take on the role, and they are ready to ban the next yahoo that steps out of line! lol...

Anyway, Congrats to both of them!

Active mods are now myself, Graybeard, and the two newbies in this message!

Thanks to jaime and jdawg for stepping up the plate, and thanks to the two veterans. Your work is appreciated.

Fair enough. In my defense, I did make the case. Just wasn't the right timing I suppose.

Congrats Jaime and jdawg! You two are awesome and I'm looking forward to tons more fun times here.

Actually, I've thought about making WWGHA flyers (for the forum) and inviting theists to join and debate with us (since I do street epistemology here in San Diego and talk to lots of theists often ;)  ). I'm going to create something in Photoshop and spread it around in online and paper forms. We need more debates! LOL. I will post it in a new thread once it's finished.

Good idea!  It would be interesting to have more theists here. :)

Also, congrats Jamie and jdawg!

Good choices.

I will test them.

2. What if there is a rock in the middle of a road, a blind person is speeding towards it, ...they say that they can't see it.   Would you recommend him to keep speeding?

Nope.  Sunglasses, a polo shirt, and cargo pants for me.

^^^Well, it's your beat, jaime. You'd know best how to blend in... But at least can the sunglasses be ridiculously oversized?

Great. My heart has been feeling a little heavy since Screwtape left his position. This will help assuage the pain. :')

I joined a Catholic forum recently and they have debate sections.  If any of them seem like they may be interested in joining I'll offer them to come here. :)
