1. You make a "10 Signs You Are an Unquestioning ___" thread in the Conspiracies in Religions Discussion Forum

2. Despite the fact that your thread has very little to do with "conspiracies" at all, it is revered by many and believed to be one of the best threads to ever be posted on ATS

3. After you make your thread, you only participate in it for the first couple of pages and let religious banter and useless conversation take over

4. Even if your thread has the slightest hint of conspiracies upon its creation, it will continue to devolve into bashing other users (such as their avatar or typos in their posts) until very few intelligent posters are left

5. Nearly every post on the first page will have at least five stars

6. The longer your thread survives, the frequency of emoticons being posted and deleted posts will increase drastically

7. Nothing ever gets solved, nobody's opinion is changed, and when all is said and done, both sides claim victory

8. There will be countless one-liners in your thread that moderators won't even blink an eye to

9. There is no number nine; if it did exist, it would be very stupid

10. People will come in your thread and argue that all this religious arguing is childish, yet they will then proceed to participate valiantly in Republican/Democratic threads

Is it just me, or do these "bullet-point lists" always show up at least once a month? It's a known fact that there are groups out there that try to rile up religious turmoil, but I sometimes wonder how much they have infiltrated ATS. I'm not saying all topic creators are a part of them, but judging from the style of posting that goes on in some of those threads, it makes me think.

If you are indeed correct this post should get 5 or more stars

At first I died a little inside,

But after reading it thank you. I hate Faith vs Faith debates. I actually felt insulted by both threads...

If you are indeed right this post won't get moderated.

See - I'll be the first to admit when I'm wrong.

Didn't know there was a better board for my thread.

I should check out BTS more often.

My bad!

Kill Impaired!!!!!

I'll admit, I was a bit peeved when I saw my thread moved, since I believed that both of the other threads should have also been in BTS, but now that all of them have been moved, I'm okay with it. BTS is where these types of threads should be at anyway, and I'm surprised it took so long for them to be moved in the first place.

This is so childish.

Really, now everyone is going to start an opposing thread when they feel a little threatened.

As for me- first time I've seen a list like that (of your opposing thread) on this site. And I'm on here almost daily. So, according to my knowledge- you sucked number ten out of your thumb.

Why could you not have posted your list in the existing thread? You probably would have gotten a better response there in any case.

Which existing thread, the Christian or Atheist one? If I posted in either, the other thread would have called me biased.

You know which thread I'm talking about.

The only one with a list. Your list would have been better fitted for that thread. People would call you biased no matter where you posted this. But that's nothing new here- this place loves to label people. No matter what your belief system is.

I just think this is silly- it's like tit for tat. Just saw the homosexual threads a couple moments ago... seems this is becoming a new trend. I wonder how long it will take for the novelty to wear off.

It just happened to me on a another Broncos related board full of middle aged, overweight, sweaty moronic peons. I posted a thread about 9/11 and they instead of countering, posted another thread about how stupid I am for questioning the official story and ridiculed me for 16 pages.


I hate that forum but I can't leave!!
