      Put in the context you're referring here, it would suggest that he's saying that he's only making observations based on what he's seen you do or heard you say.

      For instance, if someone see's me throw a banana peel out the window (which I would never do, BTW wink ) then they might say that I litter. One could say that is an obsevation, since they saw me do it.

      In that same line, if I said that I often enjoy going out to dinner or to the park with my family, one might observe that I like to spend time with my family from what I have said.

      On the other hand, lets say that I told someone that I enjoyed watching a certain news channel over any other. If that person then jumped from that statement and and made a guess about my personality or intentions based on that one statement, that person would be judging me based on their own experiences or observations, rather than on anything they really know about me.

      To expand on that, let's say that I missed one of my children's school performances. One might judge that I didn't go because I didn't care about it. Do they really know that information based on anything I've said or done? No. But they're making that judgment based on what they think and feel about my action.

      Do you get the meaning and the difference now?

    Since I am the one who said it, let me make it clearer for you.

    You are presently sitting in front of a computer, typing in the word in your mind. This is an action you are taking. The words you type are the result of an action.

    When you say something, the words you use form a sentence and that sentence can be deemed, rational or irrational, sole based on how you form the sentence.

    When someone speaks(types words) in a public forum, not only a religious forum, but a public forum, then the action can be judged. I have no qualm or fight with you.

    Statements can only be made either rationally or irrationally. There are no other options. The action is judged in that manner. It doesn't matter what you believe, or what god you pray to. It's irrelevant. When you speak about a 'god', and use the bible as a reference source, then it is irrational.

    Why? Because, the bible itself is irrational, made in a manner, to force people to conform to a specific way of thinking. That way of thinking is beyond all rationalize thought, because it forces you (a) to go against your own nature, while it deems not worthy and (b) it is unhealthy not only for you, but the people around you as well.

    Ask yourself this- "Why is there a need for a god?"- when people can control themselves. The world is in great need and yet 2/3 of the population of the world is religious or has a belief in a god? How can that be? It certainly cannot be from the other 1/3 of the population.
