Don't call phlogistician a shithead!
He won't like you any more.
Oh do go on, and share the lolz.
I have always had a huge appreciation and respect for you on this forum. We have disagreed and we have agreed in the past. You are intelligent and I also consider you to be a nice individual.
But you are probably one of the most think skinned people I have seen on here.
You are arguing about something so minute.. To the point where you are arguing about the true definition of an atheist. I'll put it this way.. when it gets to the point where James tries to sound cool and "hip" a la Brady Bunch, it's time to let it go.
And when it gets to the poing that I have to agree with quad, where he states:
"More to the point, the object of contention is simply whether "disbelief" is a positive state like "belief" is.
That question is somewhere in the grey area between a philosophical proposition and a purely semantic one. Which is to say that it isn't really possible to be "correct" about it, in the way that one can be "correct" about some point of, say, physics (i.e., conclusively demonstrate through argumentation that positions inconsistent with yours are factually incorrect)."
You are better than this. Move on.
Bells, Quad and I are in agreement, which bit of that are you missing here? Or that
"Or, you can paper over these facts, pretend that you're discussing some resolvable matter of fact, and then exploit the resulting stalemate for page after page of juvenile drama and bullying. If you're the type of ragingly insecure shithead who gets off on such things, that is." - was directed at James? Quad has accused James of bullying me here on several occasions.
James is being dishonest, twisting words, narrowing definitions, stuffing straw men, and generally presenting characteristics which make him unfit to moderate. You say I am better than this, well that's what James has brought us to. Blame the guy that is supposed to uphold the standards here, that is currently not achieving them, not me.
I read it as being addressed to you.
If you read the entire thread, it's quite clear:
Separate names with a comma.
