If the planets allign, the moon turns blue, cats and dogs start living together, and the dead arise, I HOPE we can finally either get a theist to provide evidence, OR to understand their argument is invalid before they even begun...

It seems as if you're requesting non-existent evidence to be produced by theists or, in the absence of this non-existence evidence, theists to come here having already broken through the cognitive dissonance that protects their beliefs while defending those belief. Or are you hoping a theist will be won over by conversations here, and announce they reject the faith they sincerely believed in when they registered?

Out of curiosity, did you believe in christianity yourself in a serious and genuine way? If so, how long did it take for you to break free, and how old were you?

And yelling RULES at them will help foster this...how?

Try practicing your chops.  See if you can be convincing and compelling and get them to understand that?  Again, feel free to report, but maybe think about adjusting your expectations, eh?

Then add a bunch of theist exemptions from the rules, and I'll shut up...

Yeah that'd be cool.  Be pretty cool if someone could pop in with evidence of unicorns.  So...yeah.

Well what do you care about?  The blind adherence to the rules without any regard for the subtle nuances of human communication and of the benefits of situational application of rules to help inject entropy into the discussions on this forum?

It's an honest question, ThatZenoGuy - what is it that you're hoping to get from this forum?  You're not trying to put points on some kind of scoreboard or anything, are you?  I mean even on inside your own noggin?

Don't care.

They break the rules, and ergo I report them, end of story.
Was there any indication in albeto's post, at all, asking you to not report them?  Because it sounds like you're trying to drop the mic here but forgot to actually bust out a rhyme before doing so.

I'm detecting incoming "anime" voicing requests.

THINK AGAIN!

Nah, I'd just maybe like some narration, maybe even an intro for my youtube videos.

Just need a chick to confuse people even more.

Wait, do you do voice-work?

(And I meant to put 'fandub' in that above post, not 'fanfic', dumb autocorrect. :p)

Going to be honest, nothing serious, or professional.

I just want a chick to do some voice work...

Well, your questions have once again prompted me to re-examine what I believe to be true and why.  So, thank you for that. 

Regarding the difference between "fact" and "irrefutable fact" they are, in essence, synonymous.  I am a strong believer in the Socratic view of the world which says basically there is precious little we "know".  There is much we believe to be true but cannot prove. 

Hopefully, this clears things up a bit.

Sincerely,

OldChurchGuy
however, you act as if you do know lots of things.  This near solipsism is a common dodge for Christians who want to hide their god under a rock.  It is nothing more than a god of the gaps argument with a dash of special pleading.
