You don't have to participate in discussions where you don't have an interest in contributing. Hopefully you are not going to try to tell everyone else how f-ed up they are like Summerlander did. We got REALLY tried of that.
Well what were you guys expecting when you stopped summerlander from posting? If you silence our side of the discussion, nothing will happen. Theres no way im going to speak my mind after seeing what happened to him
Thought I had replied to this so it might turn up twice.
For the record it was not "you guys" that stopped summerlander it was me all on my own and as for silencing your side of the discussion I have no time for religion at all so that ones out the door as well.
What I did was warn many times not to target people but to put forward and discuss views and that was abused. There are fore adn against and in between and that is fine but there is no need for posts to get abusive when people wont bend to a point of view and that is where the issue was and why the posts got nasty and why I did what I did
I think it would be an egotistic thing if God was called Jehovah and cared about his name so much that he expected everyone to call him by it.. eg they say "Jehovah' God.. God is always refered to by his name. I put that to them last time they were here but I couldnt get them to understand how it could be an ego thing.
The poor lady doing most of the preaching to me.. she's from china and was strugglng with her words. I really queried her after I got her to explain their 4 types of angels (her just mentioning angels wasnt enough.. I want everything deep) and what each type does and she she replied one of the types. I forgot which now "protected God".. I was what?? why would the all powerful God need protection? She ended up having to change all her wording.
Anyway.. Im having fun with my bible classes lol.. **wonder how long they will be able to put up with me**
I did find out something interesting from them thou .. in the bible it actually says earth is round.. and that was well before this fact was known by humanity.
I love learning about different religions. They've asked me to bring my bibles out next time. They are going to be shocked when I dump a heap of different types of bibles in front of them (from the mormons to king james and whatever else I have there.. and then they will be confused further when I show them I have Jesus on my wall... yet dont believe in the bible at all).
I shouldnt use religious people for my own fun but they did set themselves up for that due to intruding on my space by knocking at my door. Is it just me who thinks it is rude to knock on someones house door with the intent of converting a person?
As for the whole summerlander business I think I must have missed those abusive posts, and sorry for saying others were responsible for him getting banned or whatever his status is now.

This is the problem I have with religion too. Religions tend to surpress free thinking and exploration. They say "this is how it is period." There is no room for discussion. Critical thinking doesn't just apply to scientific exploration, but also to spiritual exploration. For example, if a religion tells me that it's O.K. to kill someone, I can use my own judgement and say "no I think that's wrong." I don't need religious institutions or it's leaders to tell me what to believe and what is right and wrong. I consider myself a theist because I believe in a higher power, but I can completely do without religion.
