    Hello Earnestshub?

    Do you find yourself annoying or are you just going through the changes in live.There is a cure,My friend.There is a cure.
    Relax,Meditate.breath and you will be just fine.
    Take a Laxtitive,Breath and you will find that people will love you and care for your comments on such rubbish.I think you have being living in Melbourne for too long if you really are living in Melbourne and not living in some cave in Packistan.
    But i still care and love you, but you do speak a lot of
    Verbal Diarrhoea.Sorry Matti.

    Lol Scarlet.

      I like Earnest and respect him. I have never seen him say anything remotely close to being classified as "verbal diarrhea".

      Well Scarlet Ohara (oops, sorry meant 'Ryan'). Is the pot calling the kettle black ?
      I tend to think that a Hubber using a Film Actors photo as an avatar is annoying !
      But I live with that, and don't bother making a big production about the fact.

      I don't know which Melbourne you are referring to. I also live in Melbourne. That would be Melbourne, Victoria Australia (in case you did not know). Which just happens to have won the most livable city in the world on a number of occasions. And is nowhere near PAKISTAN !
      Is this the Melbourne you know :
      http://hubpages.com/hub/Melbourne-Victoria
      On the topic of Earnesthub he calls it as he sees it!
      As they say in the classics "if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen!"
      cool

      Scott.Lifeposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I could say prey depending on what the topic of discussion was but then someone would say something mean about non-believers then I'd get all pro free will, and then we'd argue back and forth and they'd call me a Atheist Sympathizer, and I'd go all medieval on them and on and on, it's a vicious cycle. So I'll just "pray" for myself and ask for patience and temperance and more good people to meet on here.

            Maybe Scarlet misunderstood something earnesthub said?  Even if she's living in Ireland now, it looks to me as if English may be a second a language for her.

          Are you serious?  I just watched the video.  The colors are called a glare from the sun on the camera.  Are you guys getting dumber or just more desperate.

          Anyways, Yeah I love Earnest too.  He makes me laugh, he is incredibly understanding and an all around good guy.  Too bad you can't see it too.  sad

          Enjoy your sunset in Ireland. lol

    What exactly is the intention of this thread? If it's to gang up on Earnest, please put the kibbosh on it now.

    He has his moments when he's downright annoying. He also can be pretty decent. Guess what. I'd describe myself the same way, and I think it's an apt description for everyone.

    1. Lisa HW profile image83
      Lisa HWposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Who knows the intention; but every time someone posts one of these "gang-up" threads it pretty much reveals something about the OP - not the subject.  The longer they run, the more they reveal.

    Earnest is awesome, I don't know what you're talking about.  Maybe you're just bitter that he doesn't buy into that bible crap.  What would your savior think if he saw you acting this way?

        Mark Knowlesposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        What is wrong with telling the truth?

        The bible is crap. It is just as much my bible as it is yours and if I think it is crap - it is crap. wink

        Yet another religionist argument over this crap in the non religion forum. Why is that? Surely this would be a perfect definition of crap as applied to religious scripture? No?

        "Causes wars and fights" seems like a good definition of crap to me. wink

        Perhaps if you "turn the other cheek" some more?

        You know - like you are doing now - I love your religionist definition of "turn the other cheek." :

        "Keep on fighting and defending. Never give up the fight."

        Like it says in the bible. wink

        Oh and yeah - Ernest is really annoying. lol

    Thank you all for displaying your own integrity thus reinforcing my belief that this is a bullet proof community chocka full 'o good guys and gals.

    Scarlet, read some of my hubs, pick a title, then when you know me a bit better if you can leave your religiosity out of it as Valerie and other Christian "opponents" have, you will see I am pretty laid back and my bowels work fine thanks for asking! lol.
