    Ah, you know, Catholics say Protestants are proof that God has a sense of humor, while Protestants are equally sure Catholics are reason to suspect that He might not.

    Most people, I'm convinced, are either not particularly rational or are so poorly trained that the inclination to be does more harm than good.

    It is or it isn't.

    Claiming otherwise does not make it so.
    No more than your claiming equality makes it so.

    Then we'll never have a sufficient sample to know much about how you'd draw as a rule. As an exception it's...exceptional.

    Sadly, the best chance res has of being read in his mistaken conclusion is in a thread not of his own making.

    Congrats to Nazarro, April's Cub Reporter. I was beginning to think resurrected was going to make a clean sweep but his run ends at three consecutive months, losing a close contest with more reports than in any of the prior wins.

      ROFL!

      We don't tell our children fairy tales so that they will know that monsters exist.
      They already know monsters exist.

      • Story Time With Jack

        My son goes into the refrigerator today and I find him at the dining table with a tomato and a bottle of red wine (corked).

        He says, "I make a salad."

        And I say, "Yes, Jack, if you're an alcoholic." Which he thinks is funny, but mostly because of the sound.

        So, wine goes on the highest shelf now.

          Because nothing quite screams Christian concern like a good Pac Man illustration.



          Unless it's a Defender illustration with little people carrying crosses and demonic ships trying to pick them up, of course...that probably went without saying.

          I think it's darn near charming, you're thinking that thinking about things drives people off the deep end.

          It would if that was the totality of my experience and/or the full understanding of the term. But that's like suggesting Monty Python's The Meaning of Life was a pirate movie.

          ...That you think it's God at all is your context.
          Or it's God's imposition upon my context, which was God-free until the moment when that context was altered.

          Nevertheless, the idea of it was there, and for whatever reason, it suddenly became your new reality.
          Like suggesting that because a Hindu has heard of steak it's understandable that he have one now and again.

          The need to maintain a sense of self-righteousness is a common human trait. Christianity as an organized religion has been selling people that phony self-righteousness for fun, profit, and power, for centuries.
          I understand that you believe it to be true. I still don't know why you think I or anyone else should.

          ...we humans can't know the truth, in and of itself.
          Then you can't know that is true and it follows that we humans may well be able to know the truth--the old problem of the relativist. As a larger context it's self defeating.

          If you really knew that you can be mistaken, you would know that you could be mistaken about what "God" is or can or cannot be.
          That's because you're impressing the I on both parts. I didn't. I said if God desires, irrespective of whether or not He did in my case or the next fellow's. As a logical proposition, if God desires to be known then He will be known. Just so, if God desired to be known and made Himself known to me then that knowledge is true. My experience is that this is precisely what happened. Now I'm either correct in that impression or I'm not. That's all that can be objectively said.

          I honestly don't think you do know that you can be mistaken.
          Then you should probably talk about my mother next.

          Not really. You say it but you don't really believe it.
          Welcome to zealotville, population you. The moment you feel it's okay to tell someone you know them better than they know themselves you're officially self righteous.

          ...I think it's a weak faith that has to rely on such blind arrogance to maintain itself.
          Weak faith, blindness, arrogance. That sounds awful. It also sounds like someone losing possession of their composure or their argument, or lacking both.

          I'm not saying this to be insulting or unkind.
          Well, then you suck at praise and kindness.

          The word "trust" does not define an absolute condition.
          It does. You're talking about probability. But if it didn't then I'd just throw out the word and use the concept, so it's no impairment and nothing in any event.

          Had a couple of things to say about potential mods...

          I like him. Another right wing Christian, so no real departure, but a good egg and a fine choice.

          I think fool would be the bolder choice and another good one. He has a sense of humor and no real enemies here that I'm aware of. And I don't think you have to be a Christian to understand and enforce the rules, that he'd be less inclined than most to jump the gun. Most of the suggestions have been good ones, though most would be polarizing on some level.

          SD would spend too much of her time trying to track down IPs.

          Psalmist would clog the machinery with graphics laced infractions.

          I was so close to reporting this one until I realized you'd written bastion. Man, I really need to consider reading glasses.

          Purveyor of humor (sorry, AB, humo(u)r in your language).
          Wha-WHAT?!?!? Wait...okay, I really do need those glasses.

          ...In all seriousness, though, I have liked TH since day one.
          Back at you...and, of course, you're now only slightly more likely to become a mod.

          Then again, I like most folks that aren't anti-bbq and beans, so I may not be saying anything particularly noteworthy.
          Well, why change methodology this late in the game.

          Tomorrow? I've been threatened with rain when I want it fair.

              So that's where they went. I was looking everywhere for them...I suppose that should have been my first clue.
