Diversity of belief is a wonderful freedom to be maintained, so why waste your time criticising others on this site. Without diversity of thought we
wouldn't even have a forum because there would be nothing to discuss. You don't have to read these posts if they aren't to your taste.
My philosophy is that all people should have the right to do whatever they like, without hindrance from others, especially from politicians and
lawyers, provided that they are prepared to live with any consequences of their actions should they transgress universal law.
Here's the thing. I love diversity. If it weren't for diversity on every level of the imagination, life would cease to be interesting. The problem
that i have with these threads is that these people claim so much on nothing. I'd like to stress the following statement for clarity:
Religions have been FOUNDED on less than what these people are claiming in some instances.
The other problem I have is why these people, who claim to be able to do so much, feel that the best way to change us as a race is to come here, to
ATS, and announce their awesome powers, and furthermore CLAIM to be able to back it up, but never make good on their claims.
I would just like to see someone make good on a claim. I, for example, will make the following claim:
I will always do my best to reply to posts that take place within my threads, because i feel that if someone took the time to read my post and make a
reply, they deserve at least that much from me.
That is a claim i make here and now, and guess what? I'm backing it up this very minute by responding to you, nineteen.
and lastly, you claim that you want people to have the ability to do whatever they want without hindrance, so i pose this question to you:
How have i in any way hindered the people who made the posts i speak of? I'm suggesting that they stop doing it if they aren't prepared or willing
to offer proof or make good on their claims, but i feel that that is a fair and just request when we are on a board whose MOTTO is "DENY
and in your first paragraph, you ask why im wasting my time criticizing their posts, when what you are doing is criticizing MY post, therefore
technically doing the exact same thing I did. So does that mean you broke your own rule?
You speak of diversity of thought, but i think it's only fair that the thoughts expressed be coherent and if someone makes a claim, be able or at
least willing to back it up.
