You are absolutely right. It could have been a blacklight/UV light. I would be willing to grant you that.

But, the problem is that there was no such light near the wall. It was only me and my friend in the house when it happened and he was not touching a thing.

You must have missed it where jamiehlers specifically said "then rig something to trip the UV lamp remotely, and presto, instant "bloody writing" ". You also wouldn't necessarily need to be able to see the light source yourself.

Another possibility that you clearly never bothered to consider is this: it could have been a third person entirely, pranking one or both of you.

No third party was in the house.

I'm still interested in skep telling us what he means by balls to the wall atheist, but it's pretty clear that he's going to keep pretending that this hasn't been asked several times by several people already. Nonetheless, I'm still asking.

So skep, tell us how your life was different back when you were such a bad boy, because you seem to have backed yourself into a corner again. You really want to keep implying that you were all kinds of bad-a$$, involved in any number of hedonistic pursuits, but at the same time, you must realize that you CAN'T claim to have been involved with drugs of any kind, because that's the most obvious explanation for what you claim to have witnessed. I'm going to go a step further and suggest that "drugs" need not be illegal drugs, prescription drugs could do the same thing if they interacted badly, your body had an atypical reaction, or if they were mixed with any number of other substances, including various chemical you are exposed to routinely. You've put yourself in a situation where the use of drugs is not a "sin" you can claim to have indulged in during your "balls to the wall atheist" days.

So just what are these sinful behaviors you participated in as a godless heathen skep? How was your life, your habits, your behaviors different then, compare to now? What did you do then, that you don't do now?

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=balls+to+the+wall
Balls to the wall:
"term used by pilots. when accelerating quickly, the throttle is pushed all the way to the panel and the throttle lever (ball) actually touches the panel (wall). Hence, balls to the wall. "

It basically means 100% into it, a diehard.

He'll probably say he watched the video but it's the usual fluff and he doesn't take it seriously!  ;)  Show him anything with sense and that's how he reacts - if it's something he doesn't want to pay attention to.   That's because of it meaning he'd have to consider his errors in the things he says and that's too much for him!

I will be the first to admit that I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer. But, I'm not the dullest knife in the drawer either. I have admitted on this forum when I have made mistakes.

In the short time I've been here, admittedly I've seen that's true to at least a small degree, but I've also observed it happens alot more often that this doesn't happen!

You do raise some good points.
Yes, and you didn't respond to any of them.

Quote
For the record though, I have stated that this is not a simple black & white issue. I understand the various scenarios that people are in.

As usual, this^^^ is negated by the rest of what you say:

Quote
But, there are consequences to your actions. If you decide to have sex and get pregnant,
Like right there^^^

Quote
why should you be allowed to punish the baby
And there^^^

Quote
just because of your own selfish decision?
And there ^^^ too. I sense a trend here skep-dude...

Quote
You hate when I say this, but you can always choose to not have sex.
15% of all abortions in the US are performed on married women, which you would know if you had bothered to read the information at the other end of the link I provided you. Of them, they are overwhelmingly christians, of some variation of Protestantism, another useful fact you should know.

Quote
I understand that people enjoy sex
I'm not convinced this claim is true, but it doesn't matter because it's irrelevant to everything that's actually under discussion.

Quote
but when the risks of having sex outweigh the benefits
What risks are those skep? The risk of birth control failing? The risk of being a rape victim? The risk of experiencing a normal part of human interaction with the partner of one's choice?

Quote
, the wise choice is to not have sex in the first place.

Demonstrating once again that you have no clue how real human beings behave in real life.

It also demonstrates that your claim of "understanding" any of this is invalid, or at the very least, remains undemonstrated. You really should stop making that claim until you can make a case to support it.

True that.  Like on the previous page where I asked him to watch and consider another video, he said this:

Quote
I'm watching it now, but the person speaking doesn't strike me as very convincing. It is just the standard fluff that we have all heard countless times.

I wish no ill will on the person speaking but it is not convincing me. Like I said countless times, no amount of logical or rational thought can undo the dog being cured of cancer in a day, and the blood on the wall. Keep in mind I also witnessed plates lift off the ground and smash into a wall.

There is no "conversation" that can undo me seeing these things. I am sorry, but that is the bare bones truth.


So he displays his level of listening by typing a new post while he's "watching" it!  Pfft.

Well spotted!  :-D  Yeah...I'm not believing it's in the least bit likely he was really watching it at this point!
