Guys, really. I know we're going to get passionate about topics, and that there are some of you out there who get a lot of entertainment out of egging on the arguments, but please stop.
To those of you who want to defend Christianity, or whatever religion or path, do so through email if you want to get ugly about it. Just stop slinging insults to one another on the forums. It's counterproductive to the type of environment we should have here.
I know, I've fought with folks here in the past myself, but sometimes you just have to look at things and say.. woah, no more.
-hugs Mark, Misha, and most anyone else who wants them, and skitters back to work.-
I agree. Arguing only tends to get personal here and it just shouldn't be!
With Charlotte, I'd say it should all be water off a duck's back and move on.
"Can't we all just get along?"
Bet you are glad you asked for a religion forum now huh?
And WC - Doesn't that baby get any bigger? Seems like time for a new avatar.
Just imagine - a lifetime of changing diapers..........
We have the Costco membership which = bulk diapers, so we're good there.
And if that's the only expense we have in this child's life, we're in great shape! Would love to not have to worry about the college and wedding expenses!
The baby had an overnight growth spurt and is now able to sit up, army crawl and eat solids. I have updated my profile picture as evidence of her size increase.
I'm glad I asked for it, just not glad that people won't stop trying to hurt each other.
Oh, I won't deny people free will. There's a difference, though, and it's not a matter of free will when someone unloads on non-Christians with venom, or vice versa, for the sake of venom itself. I think that we all have the option and ability to be civil, or even better - to be personable. To be the better person, in a way.
I love all of you, but the petty squabbles are too much even for me.
Was it petty or pretty?
Some of us are just having fun Charlotte, including yours truly
I know, sweetheart. There are wayyyy more angry people on this forum than you two, I know you guys do it mostly in fun.
I guess I am one that's on the "inside" side of the faith fence, but I was only thinking this same thing. You beat me to it in posting a request similar to this one of yours.
I assure you, as a believer, I am having fun. I take no offence at things said to me, and I certainly intend none to others. Sometimes my somewhat sarcastic sense of humor can be misunderstood for attacks, but they are not!
Thanks for starting the thread, and I hope many read it.
Well I liked that thread... I like watching human nature. I'll never be able to meet these hubbers. But it fascinates me to draw a picture of what these guys are in real life based on what they write and how they react to stimulus and other things... sooner or later it is easy to predict the way there thoughts behave.
And Mark... I made that bacon horror you showed me... and well... there's still oil on my keyboard... on my guitar... and my camera... and it is all your fault. You sure are an expert in cardiac delights.
Check this one out -
hehe. Talk about temptation.
You know, not to brag or anything but people say she looks much like her dada. haha
(That's actually the photo we put on our x-mas cards.)
What I love is that she has mom's beautiful blue eyes, for now. Hopefully that won't change once she's older.
Well, I guess there are some advantages to looking like a little girl but.....
Seriously - she is gorgeous. I cannot let my wife see this
Oh dang, she is adorable. Growing up fast eh? Seems like just yesterday on hp, you had to go because she was getting ready to enter the world, now look at her...
I am feeling like a blubbery goon.
I was following this thread and I know this is a little off topic, but Im going to say it anyways Your little girl is absolutely beautiful! And having three girls of my own - I know beautiful baby girls. I also feel confident she will keep your wife's beautiful blue eyes. All three of my girls were born with crystal blue eyes and all three still have them at 7, 4 and 3.
Aww, thanks for the encouragement Ardie! I'd like to think she'll keep her blue eyes.
Regardless, she'll be a heart throb for sure!
One thing I'm preparing (prepared?) to do is go to the fru-fru, pinky, cutesy, princessey movies at the theatre with her. Should be a blast
Eh, I wouldnt worry about it too much. With my three girls, I still havent had to sit through a princessy movie yet. We've seen Curious George, Flushed Away, Bolt, and the Shrek's, which are the closest we've come to princesses
And she's for sure to be a heartbreaker...she's too cute!
haha you two are too funny!
They grow up fast, but we're loving every stage of her life on the way (for as short as it's been)!
Nothing like a cute baby to stop a pointless religious argument ...
I know, and the child of an awesome guy like WC.
Now if only everyone would catch on and stop arguing!

I am so frustrated right now. Here I am drinking my morning coffee and reading through my HP offerings. And, there they are! Person after person, with names that I have no chance to pronounce, writing articles (usually their first) that just the title alone, MAKES NO SENSE!OK, all of you bleeding...
