    Can make even the best conversationalist insane.

      Women seem to be natural multi-taskers and insanity might not be as sudden as it could be for a man. That is... if they have not acquired the skill.

        Very true.

        As a professional psychiatric patient, I'd like to think I have some skill with conversation.

          Yes. Today's postings reinforce that thought.

    Perhaps I can suggest, then, that you stop opening pointless forum threads?  Just an idea.

      Is that a personal attack?

      What's pointless about speaking the mind?

      What makes you the authority on pointless posts?

      You have nothing useful to say and this will be my last post to you, unless you have something useful to add.

      My speciality is pointless threads. big_smile

      And for the record I like both of you.

        Thanks, ps.  I like you too! smile

        And, nonto - that is not a personal attack.  But reading through the forum for the last week or so, you've started the majority of the religion threads - and some - like this one - have nothing to do with religion. 

        Others are not questions or anything really meant to encourage discussion, just incredibly provocative statements meant to heat people up who disagree with you on matters of faith.

        That's what I see.  That's my take on it.

        Nothing personal.

          Nothing personal taken. I just wanted to know the motivation of the post.

          If I'd wanted to start a fight with theists, I'd say that all theists are morons.

          But I don't think that way. I'm looking for theists that can prove their stance.

          As for this thread, it was just a break from the theist/atheist debate.

            If you're an atheist, any proof that a theist offers will immediately be rejected for your more 'scientific' and 'logical' arguments.  No fundamental theist will agree with you, nor will you agree with them.

            My question: if no theist has approached you regarding their faith, why do you feel it necessary for them to prove anything to you?  It would seem to me that their beliefs are of little concern to you unless they broach the subject first.  You seem to be starting most of your atheist/theist conversations.

              It all started with a door to door peddler of theism. A Jehova's witness to be exact.

              They approached me and spoke of their God as fact. Since then, I've asked countless theists to prove it.

              I find that in this type of forum, I can find a broader sense of the term "fact".

                Any sane theist will tell you that while they live their lives according to their God's word as fact, they in fact have only 'faith' in a God that cannot be proven - just as any sane atheist will tell you that they do not believe in God because His existence has not been proven to their satisfaction.

                I sell my belief/faith as just that.  I cannot prove it to you, but my personal experiences have proven to me  beyond a doubt that my faith is neither blind, nor empty.

                  I can identify with that.

                  I wasn't always an atheist, so I have a pretty good idea as to what faith entails.

                  I quit theism, when I found I had no reason to believe that way of thinking.

                  And for the record. I don't hate theists.

                    I don't hate anyone.  smile  Some of my favorite folks to post in the religious forums are folks with whom I vehemently disagree on matters of faith.  When it comes down to it, I love to talk about religion and spirituality and atheism and agnosticism.  I do, however, refuse to argue about it with anyone.  I will defend my right to believe as I choose - and anyone else's as well.  But there is no need to defend my faith.  It's faith - nebulous at best, irrational at times, but mine to hold as I choose.
