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 see.  Does that mean you'll be providing such tangible evidence which will back up your claim after all or, is the burden of proof for making such a claim "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 the last I'm going to mention about Falcon,BTW,because this is exactly what he wants. To be the center of attention.

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?

Although logical reasoning and "preaching" are mutually-exclusive concepts, I catch the drift of your intention and thank you.  Now it only remains to observe how long it will take "jedi-fundie" to "not-ignore" me this time around.

Whether "he gets away with more than anyone" is a matter of opinion.  Clearly,  he hasn't done anything against FC rules/policies or he wouldn't be here.  FC has provided an "ignore" button, if people refuse to use it it's no one's problem but their own. 
 
  I teased him about it because I was surprised he would chase down someone for a "multiple chirp post" after so patiently tolerating all the "call-out"/"beat-down" posts on him.  My post to him isn't against any FC rules/policies.  If people don't wish others to think they are hilarious in the forums then maybe they should act like they have some sense.

  I had saw what that member did in her "multiple chirp" post and thinking she was so funny "mocking" him.  I guess we should all turn our heads and act like THAT didn't happen?   She didn't like reaping what her actions sowed and I'm the one that is supposed to be sorry?  She started it, she got a taste of her own medicine and didn't like it.  Hopefully she's learned a lesson  about spamming in forums.  Falcon's reply to me on pg.1, he stated "this reply was not intended to rekindle an old 'flame'" which meant that even though I brought it up and he offered an explanation of the situation, he wasn't trying to "stir it up again".  So what's the point of following him in here, 'rekindling the flames' unless it was to 'keep the fire burning'? 

   To say "yet it seems it's fine for him to carry on about it"---he wasn't carrying on about it.  I teased him, he stated what his intentions for his reply was and we were done with it.  You and jj followed him in here and pratically turned this thread into another "beat down" on falcon thread.  And you expect me to back you on that?  I can't.  He had good reason to 'go after' "chirpy" and while the outcome was an unfortunate one, a person has to think before they act or the consequences of their actions may affect the innocent.

Now...BACK to favorite Bible stories.... :thumbsup:
I don't agree with what she did at all. But he came after her to give her a "dose" of her own medicine, and in doing so, caused a thread to derail.  So to you, that was okay?  The consequences of his actions, too, affected the innocent in that thread.  Yet, dare I come into a thread and say anything?  Especially when he went BACK in there "re-scolding" me like I'm a kid, and when the scolding applied to him, too?  What happened to your extreme fairness of looking at both sides?   

He's done the same thing to the Bible Verse Thread because he can't find it within himself to leave people of Faith alone. 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.He's not going to stop harassing people and no one is going to stop him.
That's right, keep it going... keep trolling.  A "Bible Verse" thread has NOTHING to do with this one on "Bible stories". Now you've resorted to calling him names, telling others to stop responding to him---but 'he's the one causing ALL the trouble'.     ::)  GEEZ, with all that is going on in the world today, this is SUCH an issue!  ::)

I guess you just don't "get it".This is a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black.The reason for the derailed thread is because Falcon has derailed this thread,the Bible verse thread and the Blog thread. He continues to derail threads without consideration of the posters in those threads.If you want to keep on chanting "Poor Falcon...Poor Poor Falcon!" that's fine.It's your business.But it's clear to see the amount of people who are fed up with his childish behavior is growing daily.


I agree.  Also, if that is what she is using for an excuse to take up for him, he came into a blog thread out of spite to the "chirper" and dished it back at her, yet managing to derail a thread.  So now, he's getting "dosed" back, since we are to treat others how we want to be treated, and suddenly the rules changed, and it was okay for him to do so but not anyone else to dare mess with him.  Wow...backwards...

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.

You're not fooling everyone, some day God will reckon with you.  You won't be able to play all innocent with Him, He knows better.  Jesus NEVER said "debate and discuss", he said to witness.  One witnesses by their words, their actions, what they do when they think no one is watching...but someone always is.  Many have had the opportunity to "watch you" in the forums, hopefully they've been impressed enough by what you've posted to make them wish to seek God.  The drama ends here for me.

Didn't the same religious precepts have some injunctions about "bearing false witness" as well?

The drama ends here for me.  


This particular "drama" ends when the ones dragging it out cease doing so, (I suppose that includes me as well, for responding to "drama" initiated by others). Maybe it was the sheer gall of their false 'martyrdom' which drew me back into the ruckus, not sure.   :-

Likewise to you the same.  I saw how you were before with him, kind, scolding, but still standing for your Godly views.  I'm amazed at your turn around support of him.  I have no problem with respect on both sides.  You have no right to judge anyone Sheryl, yet that's exactly what you are doing.  God will reckon not only with me, but with you, and with all of us, too.  No one is playing innocent here - just speaking the truth.  Think what you want.  Many have been "watching" you, too, and hopefully they've also been impressed enough by what you've posted to make them wish to seek God.  No drama to end when it's truth.

Since you do not appear to have an 'off switch', (and are aware that "Sheryls" has placed your posts on "ignore"), I'll risk ticking her off to quote your continued fanning of the 'drama flames'.  Note that responses to such fanning can be considered as 'fanning the flames' as well, the subtle difference is that such responses are just that - reactions to 'accelerants being tossed onto embers'.  Hence:

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.


I read those the last couple of days and I like them too!  :thumbsup:

I like the story of Joseph where he is second to the pharoah when he sees his brothers again, who traded him into slavery. I like the story where Jesus meets the samaritan woman by the well and tells her she can get living water and of course when Jesus returns.
