Don't you really think that positive spiritualism forms a vector space over self identified religion? When will you guys admit that I've proved it?!?!
Nay, only dimensionless spiritual acceptance gives rise to the mechanics of miracles, thus illuminating the wholeness of our lord and savior, Batman.
Wrong, wrong , wrong, wrong, wrong, WRONG! BALSPHEMER! Allow me to "enlighten" you:
Ok, I give. All hail Cthulhu...
Wait, THATS what that squid Mormon convinced me to follow?!
In noting this, I do not mean to imply that your ideas are unsound; but your attitude is certainly dogmatic.
How so? By pointing out how his questions are unintelligible through satire and that he is demanding specified answers, how is my attitude dogmatic?
I asked him first, but he doesn't seem to want to answer any of my questions.
(If you were referring to "our lord and savior Batman" or "hail Cthulhu", I totally see w̶h̶o̶ ʜᴏᴡ that can come across as dogmatic)
Ban this idiot, Andrew. He isn't here for anything real or meaningful.
I second the above notion.
I do want opinions but it seems like i am talking to a religious person that no matter what i say your opinions are immovable and quite a bias mind set were you cant even evaluate information honestly.so i am slowly coming to a conclusion that if i want HONEST opinions than this is not the place.i think the fact that i am a non athiest you guys have a pre conceived feeling towards my point of view and also the fact that i dont use grammar as well as i should. I guess what im trying to do is force you guys to be open minded you can tell when an answer is honest vs a spiteful one and i sense alot if spiteful answers from most of the guys who i have interacted with on this site.my last point on chimp3 was spot on he gave an example of a god being metaphorical but you guys were not honest about that reality which i knew (you guys not being honest) was likely based on that being a pattern.so pretty much the regulars on this site are not as smart as they claim to be, not as honest as i thought they would be, not as logical and critical thinking as i thought YALL would be, but just a bunch of religious athiest!
You don't want opinions. You want confirmation of what you already think. Begone, child. Leave us!
If you actually want opinions, it seems odd to dismiss all the questions that have been made to try to understand what your questions actually mean.
Instead, when you don't get the answers you wanted, you call everyone "not open minded".
That your grammar was criticised, has to do with that your posts were more or less unreadable, added to your already cryptic questions.
Sometimes I think Andrew might be a chat bot.
Andrewcgs: "'....my last point on chimp3 was spot on he gave an example of a god being metaphorical"
Let me ask you a question. If the metaphorical rabbit hole sucks the universe towards the looking glass of eternity will the Red Queen condemn us forever to be headless on the event horizon of eternal incomprehensibility?
I expect your answer to be a malleable blob that I can then use to trick those tricky atheists with my psycho-elastic reasoning process. Wink , wink Andrew . We are in this together!
I never thought I would have to resort to this..... Captain Domitrivaich! "Yes, sir." Prepare the Reason Nukes to be loaded on to the LB-160s(Logic Bomber) "Target, sir?" Atheist Republic. Launch code is: 281118517674
Andrewcgs - "my last point on chimp3 was spot on he gave an example of a god being metaphorical but you guys were not honest about that reality which i knew (you guys not being honest)"
I really don't understand your complaint. No one told you that chimp3's example wasn't a metaphor. No one here thinks you can't use god in a metaphor. You can also describe god with lots of other rhetorical figures of speech. This is so trivial it shouldn't even need to be mentioned. Now can you explain exactly how we are being dishonest? Please try not to use word salad.
Before the Russian nukes hit :
If the metaphors for the Sacred Tenor of the Word arrive contemporaneously with the Vehicle of Gods Malleable Nature does the tenacity of Headless Cosmic Rimming replace all due diligence in the Socratic Process of Metaphoricall Allegory?
Huh ? Does it?
my last point on chimp3 was spot on he gave an example of a god being metaphorical but you guys were not honest about that reality which i knew (you guys not being honest)
You left out "was likely based on that being a pattern."
But i wanted to bring this topic attention because some people use god or the concept of gods in different ways and i think some people put the view on a god in the same box but and god concepts can work in a variety of way metaphorical, physical, religiously, and many other ways 2 examples i have said is us being the gods or the universe being the god. But pretty much the concepts of god can ve very different than religious view and i think sometimes alot of people bunch them all together having the same.
Andrewcgs -"You left out "was likely based on that being a pattern.""
Yeah, because it was more of your confusing word salad. You'll also notice your reply doesn't address anyone; I almost didn't realize it was addressed to me!
Andrewcgs - "i wanted to bring this topic attention because some people use god or the concept of gods in different ways"
So you spent 2 pages trying to get a simple point across with word salad; a trivial point that everyone already knew? Then called us dishonest because we didn't vocalize this trivial point buried in word salad?
You guys actually disagreed with this trivial point i put it very much in layman's terms a 10th grader would be able to understand calling me crazy and shit which is why i called out you guys honesty.but its cool im happy with the fact that i am far closer to the truth about the universe than most people in my opinion and that helps me deal with people with the wisdom levels of infants.
I did not order word salad as a side to my Dish of Truth. Waiter! You fuged up my order!
Andrewcgs - "You guys actually disagreed with this trivial point"
At most only one person disagreed with your trivial point, and even that is debatable. So again tell us exactly how this makes us dishonest?
Nyarlathotep that statement of only 1 person disagreeing with this trivial point is dishonest.i count everybody who responded and maybe 2 as debatable and some of you was just confused genuinely but still responded in a negative way or respond in a way that equals non agreeing stance on the topic.so you guys bash me and make disagreeing comments and and all of a sudden its of course everybody agrees with that....thats trivial nah thats called switching your opinion when are in a corner red handed and have no other choice but to admit the truth but if there was any room for dishonesty you guys love to play trolling games!
Andrewcgs - "i count everybody who responded and maybe 2 as debatable and some of you was just confused genuinely but still responded in a negative way or respond in a way that equals non agreeing stance on the topic"
Wow that made my brain hurt. So apparently anyone who failed to respond to your trivial question buried in word salad implicitly disagrees with it... Wow.
Andrewcgs - "you guys love to play trolling games!"
OK, so you think this is a trolling site. That is fine; everyone's got an opinion. Let me ask you this though: why are you posting on a site you think is a trolling site?
Andrewcgs - "i count everybody who responded and maybe 2 as debatable"
Really, even though I agreed, you still count me as a negative? LOL, mind blown, again...
so you guys bash me and make disagreeing comments and and all of a sudden its of course everybody agrees with that....thats trivial nah thats called switching your opinion when you are in a corner red handed and have no other choice but to admit the truth
Andrewcgs - "nah thats called switching your opinion"
Dude it took 2 pages to wander the jungle that is your posts, to figure out what you even wanted.
A simple i don't understand would work or i have trouble understanding can you rephrase that but all i see are insults and bashing comments which equates to a disagreeing answer or by definition you guys are just trolling.
"A simple i don't understand would work or i have trouble understanding can you rephrase that"
So now your complaint is that we didn't make it clear we couldn't understand you? Seemed pretty clear to me. For future reference: based on your previous messages, I think it is safe to assume that most of your posts won't be understood.
Fine. You think we are trolls. Fine. My question: Why are you still here? The door is there for a reason. If you really think we are trolls, why bother wasting your time? It's not like you like calling people trolls for the hell of it.........is it?
