I got a few nasty u2us from people calling satanic and evil and a witch..Some said I couldnt dress lol
The pic is from an 80's party and Im not satanic nor am I evil. It's just funny how people judged me based on my avy which was an actual pic of me!

I LOVE this pic too btw..mostly because it seemed to piss people off lol

rock n' roll baby!




It scared me.
The 80's were the most frightening time in fashion history.

You won't get any argument from me.
I was only kid during them but looking over the history
of the last half of 20th century it was like the 60 and 70 seemed like an uphill rise that seemed to crash in the 1980's.
at least it had the clash

Haha yes it was however I do like a lot of the styles from then even for today.

80's style clothing is in all the stores now only updated. I even saw parachute pants!!! They have shirts with shoulder pads which I think are horrible no matter how much you try to update them lol

I do like crimping...I crimped my hair with a vintage 1985 pink crimper! Took me an hour to do lol

I hate to say this...but your lack of experience on ATS shows.

I don't.



YOUR NAME. What maddness in what hmmm a SOUL,


...it's a metaphorical soul. Soul as 'psyche', soul as 'consciousness'. I don't believe in a metaphysical, supernatural, or otherwise non-material object known as a soul.

Furthermore, this sophomoric argument misses one point...what does a soul have to do with theism? I mean, atheists can believe in souls, ghosts, fairies, spirits, etc. No gods doesn't mean no supernatural.



Cmon get off the fence either you have a soul and there is alot of other stuff or no you have no soul you disapper when you die and there is nothing but this dying reality.


I don't think we have a soul. And even if I did think we had a soul it would not necessarily imply anything else about the universe. The soul itself could merely be a function of a body.



I think we have soul and should just be nice, meditate that stuff ya know. And ignore the crap.


Yep, like your posts.

If you really do not belive in god, hell, etc........ Then why would you care at all in anyway about any religon and what they think.


Because they're hurling abuse at me. It's hateful intent. It's an intent to bully other individuals. I don't really care whether or not I receive it, but I care that people go out of their way to send this vitriol against individuals who I think are nice people.



They are fake to you. So either you do belive in god and want to be a big bad rebel or you just want attention about something you do not belive in.


No, I don't want either. I want people to not say hateful things in an attempt to intimidate or shun.



If you do not belive and its a fantasy why would you care at all what some thinks or says from a religon you do not think is real?


Because they're attempting to bully people. Hearing "You're going to hell!" isn't as bad as hearing it dozens of times for no reason at all.



Again if you do not belive in god or hell why would you care about not getting pm's about going to hell.


I don't actually care. I care that people are getting them at all. I'm using the question of why I don't get them as a tongue-in-cheek way of expressing my surprise that other people are getting them.



That is just stupid and waste of energy and time on your part. You ONLY want attention or want some one to convince you to go to church. Sick huh how your own mind fools ya.


No, I don't want attention for it, I don't want other people to be subjected to needless harassment.

Yes, I have checked it. I'd like to thank all of the people with sarcasm detectors who sent me messages telling me I'm going to hell...all of which were done in good fun.

I don't really care what people think, so long as they aren't trying to use it as harassment. My girlfriend's family is all devoutly Catholic, my own family (outside of my parents, uncle, and a cousin) are all quite Catholic as well.

But...they don't actually go out of their way to tell me things about going to hell.

Thats right Madness think of yourself first....

Send me a PM saying I`m probably going to Heaven and THEN I`ll send you one saying your probably going to hell.



I liked your rant by the way

Good point Madness. The Catholics usually don't. It seems to be the "charismatics" that do this more than any other. Of which I was one, unfortunately.

Ouch that has got to suck.


At first it was weird. But I just kept it to myself until someone tried to engage me in christian banter. That's when I would tell them that I wasn't the person they thought I was anymore. I was free of that now. It only took a few times of that for the word to get out.



I imagine that is the biggest hurdle for many to question or leave their faith their family and peers prevent them from doing so.


There is some truth to this. This is why the church and family members consistently want everyone in church. To keep the programming from breaking down. Those who stay away from church start questioning things. And we can't have that can we?




You lose all your social ties or face ridicule from those around you instead of acceptance for what you do or don't believe in.


It definitely changes the circle of people you associate with. I probably socialize more on ATS than I do otherwise. But then because of business, I'm around people all day long in a professional capacity. So I'm ready to stay home at the end of the day usually.



Children who are born into evangelical or fundamentalist culture never really get the chance to choose what they believe in and if they do depending on the culture they face ridicule or worse.


It's a shame. It really is. I was raised with the idea of god and the bible. Fortunately, I also had exposure to other perspectives. So even though I spent many years in "the faith", eventually, my exposure to science, history, and those other perspectives helped bring me out of the brainwashing once I allowed myself to begin questioning all the garbage I was taking for granted. Just glad I'm not there anymore.

Sorry for the delay. I had it in my head I had already answered you, and I hadn't.


Thanks for the reply. S&

I just heard that MrXYZ, one of my favorite fellow atheists here on ATS gets private messages telling him he's going to hell.

Why don't I?



Come on, I rouse quite a bit of stuff against Christianity, don't I? Can't I get at least one damning from a Christian here?

I mean, I feel like I get a passive aggressive condemnation as I keep seeing "____ has added you as a respected foe" in my inbox quite often, but is it really too much trouble to at least tell me?

You're not as important as you think you are? Your arguments are rubbish, anyone can see through them? Mr XYZ is trying to make you jealous, he's pretending he gets all these PMs just to rark you up, because the oxygen of publicity is the most important thing in the Universe to Internet Atheists, Internet Gays, porn-stars, wanna-be Justin Biebers, and the self-pitying. AFAIK, you come into the first and last categories...

Wow, more ignorant personal attacks from someone who clearly hasn't bothered to read anything beyond the first post and doesn't understand the point of this thread. Let me help you out:



And frankly, if my arguments are all rubbish why are you resulting to the use of unabashed personal attacks?

First, who on earth are you? (ATS seems to have stopped putting names on posts)
Second, I read the whole thread, and third, I can't see videos, so you'd better explain what it is..Personal attacks? That's hilarious coming from you... (I've found out who you are, by looking at the top of this text box). You are the king of both self pity and personal attacks.

Actually, the problem is that the new site design is chopping off a bit of the top on the last post in threads, I'm guessing they'll sort that problem out soon enough.



Second, I read the whole thread, and third, I can't see videos, so you'd better explain what it is..



Sarcasm



It's an explanation that a good portion of this thread is based on sarcasm.



Personal attacks? That's hilarious coming from you... (I've found out who you are, by looking at the top of this text box). You are the king of both self pity and personal attacks.


Wow, more personal attacks! If you actually had an argument against any of my posts you'd have actually addressed them properly instead of attacking me yet again and going "NO U!"

If your posts actually had any content for me to discuss, I would discuss them. But 'poor pitiful me' doesn't amount to an argument, so sorry, you're pretty well "# out of luck" as my dad used to say..

Considering that this thread isn't 'poor pitiful me' it's "What the hell are people doing damning others to hell instead of engaging them in polite conversation?"

I don't get damned to hell by people (except for the comical messages I received following this thread by people who understand sarcasm). I have pretty decent relations with those of the religious persuasion. What I don't think is good is that there are people who are attempting to bully others into submission using their false threats of eternal torture.

Furthermore, to say that someone concerned with the attempted bullying and intimidation of others is saying "poor pitiful me" is to do something similar. To launch personal attacks instead of addressing the vitriol that others who are members of the same group that you so proudly attach yourself to is to basically scream at the world "I don't have anything to say so I'll do my best to distract from the issue itself"

Oh, and if I didn't have any arguments, I would have left this forum ages ago. I have been on this forum exactly 5 years longer than you have. I have somewhere close to ten times as many posts as you have. I'm not saying this to boast, I'm saying it to point out that, at the very least, some people think I have something to say.

Screw it, I'm sick of this. Put up or shut up. I'm giving you a challenge: A debate, this summer. Religious topic. We can discuss it later, but I frankly don't see what else to do with someone providing unnecessary confrontation. You didn't have to bother to address this sarcastic rant, yet you chose to launch personal attacks in not one, not two, but four separate posts.

You've said you can't see videos, let's hope you can see images:



If you can't, it's a gauntlet. On the ground. As if it had been thrown. Since you're a self-declared expert in the English language or at the very least have access to Google, I'm sure you'll get what that's supposed to represent.

Over the years, I've gotten a couple of "you're going to hell" comments sent to me via PM. I don't know what the sender thinks they are going to achieve by sending those to me, but I always reply by requesting that they "save me a front row seat".
