'Arrogant Asshat' about covers it. I'm ignoring the whole thread for a while as it's just dragging me away from more productive discussions.
It's too bad too. If either of them had some valid sources to point to and constructive comments, I welcome the exploration of minority opinions. But when someone comes in and simply condescends to anyone who disagrees, never citing a source, expecting us to take it on faith that they know what they're talking about...
That's how a Theist argues. And it's what I come to A/N to get away from. I can only beat that dead horse for so long before I grow tired of it.
I just read your "Letter to my former Christian self". This part especially resonated with me:
"I suddenly realized that God did not listen to my prayers. It suddenly made everything else about the world make sense. I took comfort knowing that God had not ignored me, he simply was not there. This understanding keeps you from being a very bitter man at God and all of his creation..."
Hi Ray, I really respect your ability to break with theism in what I can only imagine is a very difficult region to do it. It sounds like you got here in a very regrettable way though. I wish you luck on your journey.
Waaaait...is this one of those internet money-making schemes that actually works out to less than minimum wage? I dunno. Of course, the expenses would be low. And I would need gas to combat the unicorn trucks. OK, sign me up.
Hi Rayray. I'm currently unemployed and noticed your profession. It looks intriguing. Are there any special educational or experience requirements for becoming a liqured up street bum? Is it a technical certificate sort of thing, or do you need a four-year degree? Are there lots of openings, or is it like Celebrity UN Goodwill Ambassador? Please provide contact information for your HR department, and I can send my resume and references. Thanks!
