Disagree.

Dogging?

No.

Asking why? Questioning? Disproving silly references to empirical evidence for something that has none? YES

See, when a non-believer does these things, he/she is automatically labelled a troublemaker. This has been going on since people were getting burned at the stake. If you so much as question faith, it brings down a firestorm of sympathy and cries of "hater".

BS

The biggest flaw with religion and some religious people is their inherent inability to allow others to question their faith. Or if they are really cheeky, they get the ok from some wiseman to go ahead and do mean things to a non-believer. Great way to propogate the meme, not so great a way to make friends.

Just sayin', we call each other names all day on this board, I sure do, but I would think by now you guys would know that I don't mean it. Like EVER.

But if I make fun of your faith, suddenly I'm being mean.

Odd that.

Dogging might be the only adjective I have used.

Mean, etc, not from me.

I have ZERO problems with people questioning and trying to figure things out. If that's the case no problem.

I guess where I'm perplexed is the sheer number of threads generated and for some, not all, I question the overall motive if it's really to get educated or have that type of discussion or is it being spiteful. How I will really know I guess I won't.

If I were to retort in any way shape or form there have been times I have been labled something I wasn't. I didn't take my laptop home and cry over it.

It seems there are more threads out there to discredit then to dsicuss, but maybe that's me.

pstall, I was going to comment on your last post but forgot...

I know it seems like the non-believer side of the argument represents itself here as the "attacker" more than the believer side does...

But, again, I think you see it that way because you are on the side that has the socially accepted norm, and aren't truly seeing where some of us are coming from... We are often baited into "attack" status by straight up refusal to acknowledge our side of the story... This happens in every day life too (cue someone with the "making yourself the victim comment"), and it is easier to engage a debate here than in real life encounters, because not all religious folk are as able to hold a conversation about it in person... Plus, you don't really have to worry about burning bridges in messageboard encounters like you have to kind of do in real world ones...

If it takes some demotivational posters or a sarcastic, low blow, comment that is going to invoke a knee jerk reaction to get the dialogue going, then that is what we (I particularly) have to do...

It may come off as putting down religion, but if I didn't question my own beliefs, I wouldn't feel comfortable questioning anyone else's...

I wasn't born a christian. I had to come to my own conclusions. This from a drug dealing, party like a rockstar girl chaser.

I completely see where you guys are coming from. And you are right, some people simply don't know how to have a constructive conversation when it comes to religion. And that can be for both the believer and the non as well.

Like I mentioned to epi, if someone is genuinely trying to learn or understand, I have no problem. At times I don't always think that's the case and it seems those threads out weigh the seeking answers threads. That's all I'm saying.

Pretty sure I've been told I'm going to hell more times than I've told people there is most likely no god.

Christians walk around waving their dicks about Jesus all the time, day in, day out...and the minute someone says anything contradictory towards them, the persecution flag comes out.

Whatever.

Its not Jesus I have a problem with. Its the people he's got working for him that I don't trust.

Would starting a thread "questioning"(that's the euphemism will stick with for now) christanity be dick waving?

Or making an album or movie? Is that also dick waving?

It goes both ways and for some reason the other side doesn't want to admit to that.

If we're going to be waving our dicks, shouldn't we be using them on hymens instead of hymnals?

If you are a priest and wave your dick at choirboys, the administration just kites you around so you can wave it for decades.

Sweet deal.
