You guys make good arguments.
And jamie, I wish that that thread was on a part of the forum that non-Christians could participate in, then you could join and tell him that!
... *sigh* Think I was being a bit too harsh and confrontational there? I just get conflicted and frustrated about all this and I guess my frustration is coming through into my posts by being a bit attacking when I don't mean to.
as my esteemed colleagues here have indicated, no you weren't too harsh or confrontational. It is a common tactic of theists of whatever sect to whine about how non-theists of their kind as being too harsh, or not respectful enough or some such excuse to try to convince their opponent that they are somehow wrong if they dare point out the theist's failures. Notably, they don't actually have evidence that their claims are true, but that you are somehow not playing "fair" with showing your evidence.
tell ol' Razz to bring it on if he thinks he can be "tougher".
Honestly I would, and I very much appreciate all your guys support. However, it may have to wait a bit—someone pointed out that it's off topic and we were already warned in that thread to stay on topic, so the discussion belongs in its own thread. So I'll either wait until someone makes a new thread, or I'll just quote the past posts and make my own thread on the topic as a starting point from there. Assuming Razz joins it, which he hopefully will...
