Oh, no, felch. Dumain isn't one of THOSE leftists, is he?
I have no idea what he is. It is absolutely amazing how he can misconstrue absolutely anything and interpret it as a personal/ political/ racial /whatever attack - there's no way of predicting it. He's a genuine loon.
Ralph is our equivalent of a drive-by shooter. He hopes the noise will deter people from responding to his arrogant ego stroking. If you call him on it and give a measured response, you get mute silence, because he can never justify or back up his arrogance. He's the 'net equivalent of a puffer fish. He's not completely stupid - he knows better than to post the drivel on his blog here where people won't let his crap slide.

Thanks for the comments about my blog post on anger. I have had a lot of anger, but am learning to channel it. That way, instead of being the self-rightous victim, I can go on to succeed. It's an ongoing learning process.
Hey, Grey. Thanks for posting and welcome. I'm very much a greenhorn here, trying to figure out how to express myself without pissing EVERYBODY off. It's a lifelong problem. Haha. I appreciated your post and hope to see more.
Thanks for your comments on my blog post. It's great to find interesting, thinking people on this network.
As for your comments, we are in agreement on most of our points of view. You express yourself well. All of the things that you say make sense to me.
I'm also very uncomfortable with the religious relativists, who pick and choose what they will believe based on what feels good to them, rather than taking a rational point of view. What 'feels good' doesnt leave much room for discussion. It's hard to make progress. But rational discussion - that is where we know that the atheist point of view is right, and can make change happen.
I used to live in Indiana, for a while. Never made it to Muncie - I lived in W Lafayette. It was a hard place for me to live - I did not fit in. It would have taken more strength and courage for me to stay, than leave. I'm glad that there are people there who can be a focus of rationality - if I had found that then, maybe I would have stayed.
