Why do that when calcium supplements will do the trick? :tongue:




Your bones are like honeycombs, martial artists punch brick to break the cells resulting in a much denser bone. It is much better than calcium supplements.

Such iron-clad certainty.  Always good to see dogma superior to rationality.




Assumptions, you know what they say about that don't you? I have no dogma and am rational. Try again.




Sums up the thread pretty completely.

Personalisms such as You three are assholes. are not allowed in P&S.

That sums up the thread.

Again with this ego-identification.  We seek to tear apart your beliefs and not you.





Indeed.  It is amazing how transparently offended people will get at discussion of their ideas.


Why the hell does anyone need to have their beliefs validated anyways?  I believe in god and don't pretend I can ever find logical support for such.  Who gives a shit.  Do you people have a fit if you can't deduce who to love?  There's no reason you have to be totally logical, just don't claim shit that ain't so.

Sure, but you shouldn't come into P&S unless you want to have a logical debate, and you shouldn't react negatively to people here who want just that.

There are no real atheists here. Just a bunch of people bitter about their christian upbringing. All lead by the court jester.

mad_cow, please stop. you're clearly taking this personally, and none of us want that. you're also starting to attack us personally, which is not cool. and no, i was raised atheist actually. i've got no axe to grind.

Personally? It's damn good sport. What's more fun than evaluating your worldview? For me, not much.

But things which are logical are so, and things which ain't logical ain't so. That's the distinction. Logic lets us know what's real and what isn't. At least that's how I define my world.

I was brought up as a Roman Catholic, then at 14 I realized that since I only believed in God "just in case", I don't actually believe in him.

Then I asked myself and the rest of the world, "WTF is God? :confused:", and I never receive the same answer.


I am neither a theist, atheist, or whatever, I just simply am. :levitate:

Yeah, like i said, I agree with decypher's amazement at how personal people take shit and how silly it is to want validation of your belief in god when it should be plain its totally unaproachable.





I mean who is getting that pissed off because someone doesn't think like they do and tells them so?  Wholly shit, what an outrage.  My world is collapsing cuz someone doesn't think like me.

I love making others feel cognitively dissonant! :wink:

If you ACTIVELY REFUSE TO USE RATIONALITY to back up your points, you have no right to be surprised when someone calls them irrational.

Many possible ways, however, you're the only person here who knows for a fact how you feel about having your beliefs criticized.

I don't care about the beliefs. It's having my beliefs called delusional and irrational that is the problem. Being ganged up on by 4-5 people doesn't help. There were a lot of other insinuations about what it means if I don't submit to this crap. It is a big problem if I don't lay all my personal shit on the forum for the whole world to see. I won't mention God ever again. I hope that will satisfy you.

Well, you can be pissed off, elated, or downright furious about it.  You just can't insult other members within this forum according to the rules.  (Although feel free to slam their ideas all you want.)
