If you cannot see it there's little point in trying to show you.


I know what my intentions are and were.

Yes no point in trying to show me as you will fail and I will show you your interpretation was wrong.

How is it being hostile to ask "compared to when" when you replied to my initial post with this




Feel better now?


Or am I being vitriolic again in your eyes?


You posted this (quoted below) in your OP which is quite vague if you think about it and I replied as best I could by saying "depending on what one believes"




If you think about it. This is very true in more than a few senses.


Can you elaborate a little further on "more than a few senses" and how you have concluded such?





But anyrate this is off topic.


Well you should have stayed on topic in your own thread and not label members asking questions as being critical with a bitterness only you seem to interpret.

Well stop making about me and answer some questions pertaining to your OP.

I am not trying to do anything either than get a little more out of you so I can see how you concluded such or why you believe such.

Stop posting if you don't want discussion about the topic you bring up.

You say you don't want to go into your childhood but it seems that has lasting effect on what you believe
and has influenced you in posting this thread.

Why did you initially reply to me at all with what you did if you didn't misinterpret what I said?

I know why and you can post away at your hearts desire




I. Said. Good. Day.


Good for you

Monving on.....

Here's some reading material if anyone's interested:

Frusteratingly, this one is not sourced.

Parenting- Parents can have a strong effect on religious development in children and adolescents, as they tend to adopt the religion that is practiced during their upbringing. The relationship between parents and their children however can change this. If there is a positive relationship between the parents and child, the child will be more likely to adopt their religious beliefs. In the case where there is a negative relationship between the parents and child, the child will be more likely to disaffiliate themselves with their parents religious ideas.

Looks promising.

Perhaps it's best to conduct the study on one's own.
There's going to be bias, which is why I was taught to try to prove the theory I have wrong.

My trial and error has taught me thst it's no good to be a lifetime martyr, but my study is flawed. I have a built-in bias towards the subjects I've studied, being my immediate and extended family.
