I like the omitted parts where they failed to mention that it was plaguarized, fictionalized and then homogenized from previous pagan sources.

I always favored the parables, (where Jesus would tell his diciples stories to try to make them think a little bit) like the farmer sowing the seed, and someone came and planted thistles amongst the plants.  The servants asked the farmer if they should pull out the thistles, but the farmer said no, because you might uproot some of the good plants along with them.) Then he explained that the good seed was the Word of God being planted and thistles were the work of the devil trying to discourage people from hearing and believing.

This is just the sort of sanctimonious proselytizing that makes the 'bible' good kindling.  Supposedly, the same 'g-d' who 'made' seeds also 'made' thistles.  You can't have it both, (contradictory), ways.

Favorite Bible story?  That's a tough one honestly.  There's a ton of good stuff in there.  I don't think I can pick just one, though if I had to, the entire story of Jonah is up there near the top.

Between it being plaguarized, fictionalized, homongenized and proselytized there isn't much remaining of that cobbled-together illiterary slapdashed "book".  And yes, I've read it, (the pages make for good kindling in the fireplace or, barbeque grill though - which is somewhat apropos).

The Christmas Story
Out in the fields, an angel of the Lord appeared to the shepherds who were tending their flocks of sheep by night. The angel announced that the Savior had been born in the town of David. Suddenly a great host of heavenly beings appeared with the angels and began singing praises to God. As the angelic beings departed, the shepherds decided to travel to Bethlehem and see the Christ-child.
There they found Mary, Joseph and the baby, in the stable...with the animals. After their visit, they began to spread the word about this amazing child and everything the angel had said about him. They went on their way still praising and glorifying God. But Mary kept quiet, treasuring their words and pondering them in her heart. It must have been beyond her ability to grasp, that sleeping in her arms—the tender child she had just borne—was the Savior of the world.

Silent night, Holy night,
All is calm...all is bright"

I can't say that I have a favorite story, but my favorite parts are when Jesus visits different places and never lets on as to who He is...and then of course when the Lord acts on His promises.  I also must say that I love Psalms...because even in my darkest hours and don't know what to say/ask or how to say/ask...I can always read psalms and it's the same as crying out, but He gives us the words to read...and in turn...what to say and ask of Him.

I "had" to pick on you a little...I couldn't believe that your *crickets chirping* post launched a post with about 450 *chirps* which led to a "chase" through other threads, and a warning from Kohler.  You definitely know how to keep things exciting around here!! :o

It was the 420 "chirps" trolling post which initiated the "chase", (close enough though).  Turns out that trolls don't like being 'fed' that which they cannot digest, (which apparently causes them to whine, and that in turn constituted said 'ruckus').  Kohler's warning did apply to all involved however, and this reply was not intended to rekindle an old 'flame'.  :o   :-X

I guess I just don't get how Falcon continues to harass people from thread to thread and still get away with it.I mean,the huge amount of complaints about his actions by many,many posters speaks for itself.

If I were to continually follow people who talk about something-anything-let's say cottage cheese for example- and I disrupted each and every conversation about the subject by using veiled and not-so veiled insults about people who like the subject-would that not be considered harrassment?

Isn't that the reason a D&D area was made in the first place?So people who don't want to debate endlessly can have a place to talk freely?I guess the whole board is out of step with Falcon and not the other way around..... :dontknow:

I guess I just don't get how Falcon continues to harass ...

Replying to contentious posts with a dissenting viewpoint isn't 'harassing', (except in the skewed viewed of "johnny"-fundie, who would suppress such viewpoints were he able to).

people from thread to thread and still get away with it.I mean,the huge amount of complaints about his actions by many,many posters speaks for itself.

Indeed, it speaks to the apparent inability of the, (mainly xtian), complaintants who object to having their specious religious remarks challenged in an 'open' forum.

If I were to continually follow people who talk about something-anything-let's say cottage cheese for example- and I disrupted each and every conversation about the subject by using veiled and not-so veiled insults about people who like the subject-would that not be considered harrassment?

Cottage cheese opinions are not being contended; you're presenting a false dichotomy here.  Further, it may not occur to your mind-blindness that a continuous flow of xtian proselytizing is 'rude', 'insulting' and contentious to others who don't share your particular religious beliefs.  Dissent is not "harrassment" and falsely characterizing it constantly in a unfounded and biased manner is dishonest.

Isn't that the reason a D&D area was made in the first place?So people who don't want to debate endlessly can have a place to talk freely?

First of all, this thread occurs in the "Off-Topic" forum, not d+d.  Secondly, there isn't a specifically-designated forum for posting unchallenged remarks; any post in the forums can be replied to if wished.  Thirdly, the FC forums do not have a designated "specious religious comments" area and therefore, religious adherents spew such all over nearly every forum, (not just Off-Topic or d+d).  Any replies to these extraneous religious remarks, (whether concurring or dissenting points of view), would be in the forums those remarks were made.  Summarily, replying to a post in the forum which that post appears is how such forum exchanges function, (rather than be dishonestly characterized as "following around" or "harrassing" just because the someone doesn't know how to use the FC 'ignore' function).

I'm tired of being followed and harassed with the scolding he keeps posting in threads I'm speaking in - to me that is furthering the heat issue.  I finally did it in here, and I'm the one who's rekindling - yet it's going on in other threads from him to me.  If I report - I'm in trouble.  If I speak to friends, I'm scolded by him by the reposting of the scolding.  Yet, he is continuing with this with nothing being said.  This is ridiculous with the harassment.

Any "scolding" that's occurred has occurred because of your rehashing/"reposting" this stuff over and over again.

Yet, he is continuing with this with nothing being said.  This is ridiculous with the harassment. 

"Nothing" must include actual content then.  To reiterate; Replying to contentious posts with a dissenting viewpoint isn't 'harassing' and the easiest solution is to use your "ignore button" so generously provided by FC, (as well as actually ignoring any posts which you misinterpret as "harrassing" when they're simply replies to your nonsense.

It's downright laughable that you want to call me out for not adhering strictly to the topic when your new buddy,Falcon has not added a "favorite Bible story" in this thread,nor has he posted a Favorite Bible Verse in the verse thread,but continues to contaminate every single thread intended for Biblical discussion with his rantings.

If he wants to debate,the D&D is the place to go,not harassing people every single time in every single thread the Bible is brought up.For crying out loud,is this really so hard to understand?!?  :BangHead:

Considering he was speaking, in this thread (off topic, I might add) of what had happened in that other thread, with you about it, and considering he followed me to a couple of threads and reposted the scolding to me when there was no need, it sounds like it's okay for him to do that and try to rekindle that issue to seem to get me in more trouble, like he's the one who can "re-scold" me using K's words, then yes - I am upset with what he is doing, including following me into other threads.  It's not right.

And all of this is not on topic either.  He gets to dredge it up in another thread here, and I'm apparently not to defend or say anything because it's de-railing?  He needs to drop it as well.  I had dropped it and moved on.  He's the one following me and sharing this little episode, still calling names in the episode, and c/p-ing the scold from someone else to me over and over.  That is not right, Sheryl:

It was the 420 "chirps" trolling post which initiated the "chase", (close enough though).  Turns out that trolls don't like being 'fed' that which they cannot digest, (which apparently causes them to whine, and that in turn constituted said 'ruckus').  Kohler's warning did apply to all involved however, and this reply was not intended to rekindle an old 'flame'.  Shocked   Lips Sealed

Considering he was speaking, in this thread (off topic, I might add) of what had happened in that other thread, with you about it, and considering he followed me to a couple of threads and reposted the scolding to me when there was no need, it sounds like it's okay for him to do that and try to rekindle that issue to seem to get me in more trouble, like he's the one who can "re-scold" me using K's words, then yes - I am upset with what he is doing, including following me into other threads.  It's not right.

He wasn't the one that firstly started speaking of what happened in the other thread--I did.  He wasn't trying to rekindle anything in this thread, he was simply responding in discussion to me.  I don't think an apology is warranted from me for "teasing" him about it since others freely discuss whatever they wish with others in the forums.  He wasn't "off topic" in this thread, his thoughts are just as valid as anyone else's on this forum.  No one can get you in more trouble but yourself, as only you are responsible for your actions.  I don't think he "follows" anyone around in the other threads, as he seems to be in ALL the other threads.  He wasn't the one that followed you here, you followed him.

Whatever you want to think is fine.  I'm not going to argue.  He went into the thread he followed the chirper poster in, after the scolding, just to c/p the scolding to me, when I commented by to the chirper poster that it was not her fault he came into the blog thread to get back at her and de-rail the blog thread.  He followed me into another thread later and cut down a comment I said to someone who asked for prayer, and then again, later, c/p the scolding to me.  But, if that's okay in your eyes, fine.  He's accomplished what he wanted.  And I'm sure he's gloating over you taking up for him.  It's not worth it to continue arguing with someone who I thought was a friend and would look fairly at both sides.  Have a nice night, Sheryl.

I wasn't trying to put you on a guilt trip, Sheryl.  He seems to be able to get away with more than anyone I've ever seen since I joined.  And the only thing said is "put him on ignore."  When there are so many who are complaining about one person in particular, then that should say something about where a group/forum is heading.  It's getting to where it's not fun to debate like we all used to.
 
You got on to two of us for saying anything to him, yet you brought up, off topic, the episode that has caused a problem, joking with him about it.  And he continued to talk about it like he's done nothing.  3 people, so far, including the original poster of that blog, plus who knows how many now, have left that blog thread because of what happened.  That's not funny at all.

I really don't want something like this to mess what friendship we have had on here.  That's why I really don't want to argue about it.  But I felt I had to defend myself in this with you getting on to me, yet it seems it's fine for him to carry on about it.  That's my main point.

I don't know if exciting is the only word, but de-railing is a good one, too.


  Would "de-railing" apply to JUST falcon if one comes to this thread (about posting a favorite Bible story), and instead posts a remark about falcon, which begins the de-railment of this thread?  :dontknow:

Any "de-railing" aside for the moment, posting remarks about someone who could easily be placed on 'ignore' with the touch of a button sounds like trolling them instead.  While that probably constitutes a derailment, (or, at the very least 'subject-drift'), there would have been nothing
for me to reply to had not someone posted a derailing/subject-drifting remark first.  Given the archived sequence of events, I'm not sure why someone would try to misrepresent them instead, (although I could speculate as to why, I'll decline that option for now).

As "Sheryls" aptly pointed out; this is an FC forum, not some sort of exclusive xtian-only venue, (even with the enormous number of religiously-based remarks and threads on the non-partisan FC forums).  While it's unfortunate that dissenting viewpoints and challenges to unfounded declarations are sometimes misinterpreted as "harrassing" responses, it is fortunate to live in a country, (the U.S. - Canadian mileage may vary), where opposing points of view can still be expressed without suppression.


That's why I really don't want to argue about it.  But I felt I had to defend myself in this with you getting on to me, yet it seems it's fine for him to carry on about it.

To answer your questions---

Nothing happened to my "extreme fairness at looking at both sides".  

I've NEVER believed that "two wrongs make a right".  

The FIRST FC forum rule is "Observe the golden rule, Treat others as you would like to be treated".  

If someone feels like going into a thread, mocking someone else and posting a ridiculous number of "chirps" then it's obviously because that is how that person WOULD LIKE to be treated by others---so falcon obliged.  Falcon didn't cause that thread to "de-rail", those that didn't have the sense to use their 'ignore' button DID.  The matter was between Falcon and the person that started her "chirpy" nonsense.  If you and the others had used the ignore button, things would have stayed that way.  

But it's more fun to simply "throw down the toys and run out of the thread crying" isn't it?  More drama that way, hmmm??? Chase falcon into a into a topic entitled "the Bible" where others are posting their favorite Bible stories and cause a disruption to simply "bash" him, you keep on trying to cause this thread to "de-rail" (the SAME thing you've accused him of already doing in a different thread), but it's supposed to be A-O.K. if you do it?  

Falcon has resorted to repeatedly using "beating a dead horse" icon, so apparently he "gets it".  Apparently you just wish to keep dragging this drama on and on and ON.  That isn't "right", it isn't "Christian-like" and I don't support the beating of dead horses (or live ones).  I do heartily support using the "ignore" button for those that insist on beating a dead horse "to death" though.

Indeed, not only has the FC moderator recommended use of the ignore button for those who don't wish to see certain posts, so have I.  Others will continue to see those posts since the ignore button only 'blinds' the one using it, (it does not censor the poster from all other eyes).  

Unfortunately, there is no 'completely ignore' button that prevents some from continuing to not ignore by way of repeated references andd remarks about the member they supposedly have blinded themselves to.

... the Bible Verse Thread because he can't find it within himself to leave people of Faith alone.

Why are such "people of faith", (religious adherents), under the mistaken impression that they are free to post religious beliefs and unsupported claims while others 'should be prohibited' somehow from posting dissenting viewpoints and challenging specious claims in an open forum?

He's a diva who craves attention.Like I said before,if enough people stop responding to him,he'll have no one to play to.

If that were accurate, why would I consistantly recommend that those who lack the courage of their convictions simply use the 'ignore' button, (something also recommended by the moderator)?  Like your numerous other acccusations, your latest one turns out to be fabricated as well.

He's not going to stop harassing people and no one is going to stop him.

Your repetition of that false accusation is not going to confer accuracy upon it.  If you're xtian, you're "bearing false witness".  If you're a 'pseudo-xtian, (mind-blinded fundie), you'll keep repeating the same falsehoods.  Your choice.

Under the name of each person to the left of their post is a button that says Ignore.If you press that,you will no longer see that person's posts.

I see thanks  ;D - I think I will choose to use that .

I take it that your decision to partially blind yourself by using the ignore button tacitly means that no evidence to support your claim that "g-d DOES exist" will be forthcoming in the "Praise G-d" thread?

LOL, just in case you become VERY ANNOYING !

I can tell you I am not a priest or a pastor, but I believe in God and the Bible, If you choose not to believe that is your problem and I am glad you persist in asking for evidence.  But anyway, the bible teaches us Christians that not ALL will be saved, so I am thankful that there is someone out there to fulfill God's Plans.

This is a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black.

On the contrary, this is emphatically Not such a case at all.  The actual facts seem to be 'inconveniently' not supporting your continued false accusations.

The reason for the derailed thread is because Falcon has derailed this thread,the Bible verse thread and the Blog thread.

Conversely, the actual archived record of the sequence of posted exchanges do not support your false contentions.  Bummer, huh?

But it's clear to see the amount of people who are fed up with his childish behavior is growing daily.

The logical fallacy of an appeal to popularity, (which does not confer accuracy upon the contention), combined with a false characterization, (ad hominem/derrogatory remark), illuminates a completely different deduction.  That is, that "jedi-fundie" is "fed up" with his own inability to censor/suppress a viewpoint which dissents from his religious fundamentalism and is engaging in clearly childish behaviour instead, (while simultaneously falsely accusing another of doing so - now that's a "pot" attempting to "call a kettle black").

Your dubious assertion is debelieved based entirely upon the numerous, (archived), prior instances of your doing the exact opposite and not ignoring by mentioning me constantly.  Since I've previously indicated that posting about someone whom you're allegedly "ignoring" isn't ignoring, your contention concerning attention doesn't follow.

I will continue to ignore him.

One cannot "continue" something one hasn't yet begun to ignore. As soon as you figure out how to "ignore" without posting about, you can commence the 'continuing' part.

You are free to hold any sort of religious beliefs you wish; just as I am to challenge such publically-posted 'beliefs' on the basis of the burden of proof for making claims like "G-d DOES exist".  You still haven't provided any tangible evidence to support your claim, (blind-faith does not constitute evidence ... specifically because "faith" means a conviction which lacks evidence).

If you choose not to believe that is your problem and I am glad you persist in asking for evidence. 

Hold on ... my decision to disbelieve religious claims only seems to be a "problem" for religious claimants who cannot provide evidence to support the claims they made.  Why are you glad that I persist in asking for evidence when you've yet to produce any?

But anyway, the bible teaches us Christians that not ALL will be saved, so I am thankful that there is someone out there to fulfill God's Plans.

These are merely unfounded religious beliefs which I do not adhere to; they are a non sequitur.  Back to tangible evidence ... got any?

This is why the term "mind-blind" was applied in this instance; that's not what happened and the archived sequence of posted exchanges contradicts such false contentions.  The "chirper" posting member trolled another thread out-of-the-blue in 'apparent spite'.  That trolling was responded to in a way that the "chirper's" defenders, (not the "chirper" herself, it should be noted), objected to.  Your misrepresentation of the facts is what's "backwards", (and constitutes asserting falsehoods).

Although others may or may not care or wonder why someone else who had professed to "ignore" my posts continues to not ignore by posting about the 'ignored', doubtless at least some aren't ignoring that fact.

I always favored the parables, (where Jesus would tell his diciples stories to try to make them think a little bit) like the farmer sowing the seed, and someone came and planted thistles amongst the plants.  The servants asked the farmer if they should pull out the thistles, but the farmer said no, because you might uproot some of the good plants along with them.) Then he explained that the good seed was the Word of God being planted and thistles were the work of the devil trying to discourage people from hearing and believing.

-- Catherine Fahringer

*Care to explain why the exact number of 1,500 (how she arrived at those particular amount of years?)

You'd have to ask Catherine.  The figure is most likely an estimate derived from the number of years progress was suppressed by superstitious religious oppression and extrapolated from progress rates with such religious tyranny.
 
*While at it, can you confirm that this was her opinion or if it was a factual comment? 

Several people from various disiplines have commented that, without the dark ages and other suppressive superstitious judeo-xtian influences, scientific progress may have advanced by between 200 and 1500 years, (those are estimates on potentials, and yes - they're informed opinions, unlike uninformed religious beliefs).
 
*And, was she aiming it at a religion overall (in other words, in one box and one box only) or was there a particular sect she aimed this at?

Since she didn't specifically single out any one superstitious belief system, either she meant them all or, the one most responsible for the  repression and suppression of scientific progress, (regardless of sect/cult/other moot internal divisions).

*How does this apply to today and to what you are trying to get across to the readers?
Thanking you ahead for your explanations.

Today, there are more subtle attempts at suppression/repression of viewpoints which dissent from those of superstitious religious beliefs.  That insidious process includes characterizing challenges as "rude" or "impolite" in order to supress them by appealing to a one-sided 'politeness', (where rude and impolite religious opinions, sanctimonious pronouncements and self-righteous proselytizing gets a free pass).
