I've been lurking around for a couple of years. Like most people who lurk I really had no intention of joining, that is until I read a comment so
blood boiling I could no longer resist the urge to throw in my 2 cents.
I have alot of internet finds I would love to share, however us noobs are restricted to introduction forums.If i may I would like to explain why
arguing is utterly usless.
Argumentive theory of reasoning
We as humans are hard wired to win...not seek truth. We would rather have someone believe we are correct rather than actually be correct. Everyone is
guilty of it, we are all hypocrites (different people = different levels of hypocrisy) You can present point blank fact, and someone will still oppose
your finding.Evolutionist and creationist are the worst example of this pointless arguing. These people that start flame wars, don't even believe
anything in your post from the word evolution (or creation) in the title, and only read it to try and prove an OZ. of whats presented wrong (using
real facts or not).Then you have the real pot stirring people who have a title on a post like ''Why are evolutionists convinced we were not
created?'' or ''real scientific proof of god''....seriously, no one has ever changed a core belief because someone on the internet posted a good
argument. So next time you start a war over a comment, remember your letting the flame thrower win by leaving the important topic at hand to try and
prove they are ignorant. Everything turns form furthering knowledge in a persons interest to fighting to defend knowledge we are already comfortable
accepting, to someone who will never conform to your thinking anyway.
I just wish evolutionist would stick to evolution posts, and creationist would stick to creationist posts.You could learn so much more without useless
arguments gumming up the flow of an intelligent conversation.
I am an evolutionist.....flame away, it won't change my opinion, furthermore bible passages (which has been revised, burned and revised again so many
times, very little original materiel remains....also mistranslations) do not qualify as proof. (but hey, why try to prove it to me...I won't believe
it from the word God anyway) Nothing against creationists....just hard core trolling creationists (yes, us evolutionists are just as guilty of this,
remember we are hard wired to be hypocrites) I'll stay away from creationist posts if you all promise to stay out of evolutionist posts, unless a
question to the opposing beliefs is stated, this is something both sides should (but won't) agree on regardless of belief system.
