I've probably said this before ...

     Ive probably said this before; but I don't believe that christians really believe what they say about their god. I think they are trying to convince themselves as much as they are trying to convince anyone else. Consider, blogs set up by christians to promote their "faith" often start out admitting comments. But it is only a matter of time. Sooner or later, they either disallow comments completely, or they screen them and allow only those comments that pose no challenge to them. I am, of course, not talking about the "christians" who are actually salesmen. Nothing challenges their beliefs because they are not trying to convince themselves that they believe. They are only trying to sell goods. But the people truly trying to support christianity ultimately seem to have a need to hide. This has been my experience, at any rate.

Cross-posting here because Daniel feels the need to delete truth


     It is rather strange that you criticize the "prophecies" of others. You are already a false prophet yourself. You have written slanders about me and deleted my denials. There is no truth in you.

To Daniel:

     "Pvb- Defend each other?
     "Are you a fellow pedophile to this man in your thoughts Pvb?"
     Actually, I was was referring to Freed's comment. He didn't like Oranges defending me from him "stepping on [my] toes." So, this refers to non-christians defending each other, not pedophiles. But I expect you know this.
     "I feel that it is a perfectly logical conclusion to be suspicious that you are. Not to accuse you, but to suspect you of it, as you doth protest too much."
     No, you are accusing. And I expected that a denial of your accusation would meet with your "doth protest too much" line. That is why I considered the question dishonest and why I didn't answer. I didn't like your bait.
     "Comments are closed on this thread."
     Yeah, that's the way to show you weren't making an accusation. Block responses.
     Now, let me tell you something about protesting too much. It is when someone who does something tries to hide it by bashing anyone and everyone who does the same thing. He is trying, preemptively to deflect suspicion. No reaction to an actual accusation could be protesting too much. And a refusal to answer it is certainly not protesting too much.

     Issuing a challenge and then blocking responses says a great deal about the master you say you serve. I don't know if you will read this. But it would do you some good to take a good look at yourself. Do you like what you see?


     Well, anyone else who may be reading this, the link goes back to his thread. I leave it to you to judge whether making an accusation and blocking replies is representative of christian love and honesty.

Well, no one got the points.

     A nice effort from Dax, though. It seems we have no Asimov fans here. "A House for the Feeble-minded" was taken from the story "Profession." It's a very interesting story. To me, it seems to carry the subtext that creativity cannot be taught.
     I see an analogy between the Education Tapes of the story and our educational system. They tend to "lock in" a particular way of thinking. People coming out are not able to see outside of their own little scope. And, no, that scope is not "reality." Of course, religious instruction also "locks in" its way of thinking.
