["The way i see it, the problem with you bogomil is that you come time and time again to a forum about God. This makes it 'your' problem if you do not
like the subject."]
I DO like the subject (as a concept). I DON'T like the self-proclaimed absolute 'truths' often deriving from it.
Quote: ["You may call it propagandist but some understand what is being said even if you don't."]
It's not difficult to spot propaganda (from whatever ideology). And disagreeing doesn't automatically imply ignorance/lack of understanding. Such a
vague accusation (of ignorance/no-understanding) is just a way of trying to impose censorship on opposition.
Quote: ["The subject on this forum is about 'God'."]
And of many 'gods'.
Quote: ["The subject is not about 'bogomil and proving absolutes'."]
So why are 'absolutes' introduced on the thread? And why is it then wrong to point 'absolutes' out.
Quote: ["You say you do not like preachers and that it is your business to correct people."]
I do not like preachers ..... a/ it's a non-dialogue form, b/ they usually push absolutes. It's my (chosen) 'business' to present criticism of that.
Quote: ["I say it is you who are the one preaching because the subject is 'God'."]
a/ I actively join dialogues, b/ I don't push absolutes: I don't preach (I'm querulous, but that's different from preaching).
Quote: ["I don't think you would walk into a ghetto bad mouthing black people and their beliefs."]
Very bad allegory..I'm not suicidal. But I would oppose e.g. positions of 'black supremacy' on a forum (Similarly to opposing claims of christian
supremacy in the form of 'absolutes').
Quote: ["It amazes me that you tell us that it is religion and Christians with their beliefs that cause wars,"]
They DO cause wars. But not all wars and not the biggest ones recently.
Quote: ["yet all i see is the ones who hate religion and the word God or Christ that can't help sticking their noses in to threads about God and
stirring it up."]
Such statements as this should have been buried a long time ago. But here we go again: Who are the ones 'hating religion' and what 'god' do you refer
to? And I 'stick my nose' where it pleases me on a public forum. Those wanting censorship would be better off on a site WITH censorship.
Quote: [" These type of people are the torturers,"]
Oh yes, you're persecuted.
Quote: ["they annoy sleeping dogs just to get a reaction, it gives them power (the illusion of power for a brief instant). They need to feed off the
reactions of others because they have no real power of their own."]
The second time this week-end some pro-theist gives psychological amateur-diagnosing a shot. Above you demand competence to join a thread: So are you
a qualified psychiatrist/psychologist?
